A while back I suggested starting a WordPress only forum and was told I could ask "WordPress" questions on this forum.

 

Here goes:

 

I am looking for a plugin / script /theme

 

That will allow me to display 10 images that visitors to the site can vote for . If the process allows for the automatic re-positioning of the images relative to the amount of votes, that would be a bonus.

 

In your travels has anyone seen or come across something like this or similar?

 

I obviously understand that I could commission someone to create such a thing but I am hoping to avoid that cost.

I would just start by looking for a general poll plugin, and then find one that allows you to add images to the answers. There's no reason you'd need a specific "Image poll" plugin when you could just use a generic poll plugin and add images (and then re-style the layout if you only want it showing images and not text).

The problem with wordpress plugins, is that often they are started, and the developer loses interest and stops developing, so they can be very flaky, and not work on newer versions. They can also have security holes in them. So you should stick to well known ones.

You're absolutely right. I only install plugins that have "Last updated: One month ago" or newer. It's also a good idea to see how many installs there are – if it's less than 50,000 I'm usually quite cautious.

 

I prefer hand-coding as much as possible rather than throwing a dozen plugins in, they just slow everything down and often bring in all sorts of duplicate and unnecessary JavaScript & CSS.

I would prefer to hand code ..... if i could. It can be very frustrating at times. One has an idea , you play it out , then you get to a point where it needs coding. Unless there is a budget for it ...... you look for plugins.
