More ways to look at poll results

Donncha

We’re pleased to announce that your poll results page now has two more ways to look at the data entered in your polls.

If your poll allows users to enter their own answer the data collected can be displayed in a “Popular Answers” list and “Popular Words” cloud.

The popular answers list is sorted in descending order with the most popular answers at the top. It’s possible to add any answer to the poll as a new poll answer. The original answers are still recorded and the new answer will have a vote count of zero.

The popular words section is a word cloud of the most popular words used. Some common English words are excluded such as about, above, and, at, he, here and others. Singular and plural words are matched together. For example the words “kids” and “kid” count towards one word, “kid.”
