About the Web Ballot Plugin

How the Website Plugins Work

Web Ballot Website Plugin

Create and manage polls online from your website.

Visitors will be able to select a single response option and submit their 'vote' on the subject.


  • Unlimited Polls.
    Have as many polls as you need

  • No Duplicate Voting.
    System detects if a visitor has already voted (based on IP address and/or account)

  • Close poll.
    Close polls so that visitors to can review results, but not vote.

  • Results.
    View vote count or percentage.

Secured Administration Dashboard

Manage your Web Ballot features through a web based dashboard, secured by your username and password.

You can enable additional, optional, functionality of CAPTCHA, and bad login attempt lockdown for additional security. The administrative area can also be forced to use your SSL certificate for the highest level of security.

Configurable Syntax

Many of the buttons, menu items, and labels, are all configurable through our Syntax Configuration panel. Don't want to use the word "Login"? No problem, change it to whatever you like.

System Updates

Getting the latest version of the system has never been easier. Through the administrative area, you can see what updates have been made, and also fetch the latest files to be applied to your system. Free updates for the duration of your basic support life-cycle (1 year, but can be extended).

Server Requirements

As with all of our website plugins, the Web Ballot system requires the following:

  • Unix/Linux Web Hosting Platform
  • Running the Apache web server
  • With PHP 5+, and MySQL 5+
  • Not compatible with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or Microsoft FrontPage Extensions
  • or
  • Windows Web Hosting Platform NEW
  • Running the IIS or Apache web server
  • With PHP 5+, and MySQL 5+
  • Not compatible with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or Microsoft FrontPage Extensions

If you do not yet have web hosting, and need such an environment, we provide affordable web hosting plans that meet these requirements.

Software Requirements

The Web Ballot website plugin is a server-side application and does not need software on your local PC or MAC to run. To install the system to your web server, you will have two options:

  1. Use our web-based installer via your web browser

    or

  2. Manually install using an FTP progam such as FileZilla, FTP Voyager, or Adobe Dreamweaver (PC or MAC). Microsoft Windows website editors (such as SharePoint or Expression Web) will not transfer certain essential files, so we recommend a dedicated FTP client such as FileZilla if you are using a MS web editor.

If for whatever reason you have trouble installing the website plugin to your web hosting space, we can install the software for you. Configuring the system will still be your responsibility.
