Quick Poll is modern WordPress plugin allowing you to host interactive voting polls on your WordPress site or blog. What separates Quick Poll from other voting poll solutions is level of WordPress integration and control you have over this open source plugin. Quick Poll is using modern WordPres versions support for custom post types to control voting polls in the same familiar manner as you control regular posts and pages. Since Quick Poll is software protected by GPLv2 open source license, you have total freedom in using and modifying Quick Poll code. On top of that by paying download and support fee you get one year of plugin updates and one year of my support to easily integrate Quick Poll into your blog or site.

To make it easier for you to translate Quick Poll to your language I've configured Quick Poll online translation interface using open source application named GlotPress. Using GlotPress hosted on TechyTalk.info you can translate Quick Poll into your own language without the need for any additional tools. I download translation files before every Quick Poll release and include them into official Quick Poll package. This way your translation files will be available to you and to all Quick Poll users right out the box.
To keep translation files free of spam, before you are able to translate you need to register for TechyTalk.info user account. Then you can log into Quick Poll online translation interface using the following link:
Quick Poll is free ("free" as in "free speech", not as in "free beer") and open source software. Quick Poll download and 1 year of premium customer support and software updates costs 20$.
