As of v1.0, this plugin fails in MT3.35(and presumably anything pre-MT4). The Transformer callback is faulty, and nothing is presented.

Also FYI: this will pull a pretty large(239k) chunk of JS(YUI in case of conflict) into the system, and about another 100k of ancillary stuff(images, stylesheets).

Oof. Cancel the first note on compatibility(sort of). The Transformer is only valid for the “Basic” display option on the entry editing screen.

I played around with the sodahead widget plugin. It’s pretty cool. There is a lot that can be done with this plugin to augment my content. I love the ability to add pictures and skin it. I had a lot of fun with it and it’s easy to use. They seemed to fix most of the bugs. I highly recommend it. Best poll widget i have used by far.

The Widget functionality and look and/feel are great. Thanks to all of you who helped develop it. Does anyone know how I can set the Widget to only display the Poll tallies as PERCENTAGES, rather than ABSOLUTE TOTALS (e.g., display 25% instead of 25 Votes)? I very much need this feature.

I tried this right after MT4 was released and had mixed results but just re-downloaded the updated plugin and am very satisfied with it. Thanks!
