I just took the poll down and started a new poll, but you can still vote by clicking here.
I’ve learned a couple really important things from this exercise.
First, I’ve found an awesome and free polling software from Polldaddy.com that integrates into this WordPress based blog via a plugin.
The free Polldaddy plugin is a breeze to use and provides a large amount of options. There are three variations on size (width) and 20 variations on style. I’ve not see this many options with any other free polling software.
The free version allows you to perform 200 polls per month with up to 10 questions each. According to the Polldaddy.com website, you also get “basic reports for polls, surveys, & quizzes.”
Below, you can see a screenshot of the report I received from this poll.
While the free plugin is more than adequate for my polling needs, you might consider the Pro version if you have a need for more than 200 polls per month or additional features such as data export, report filters, and inviting participants by e-mail.
The reason I’m discussing the wonders of this polling software is because I believe it can be integrated into a PrestaShop store, which could provide huge opportunities for quality customer feedback.
I’ll be reviewing various polling software such as Polldaddy and another fabulous polling and survey module from Presta-Module in a future article.
The second thing I learned is what training you might want to see in the future. As it turns out, most people, by a wide margin, want to learn about how to work with themes.

What Did I Learn?
It appears that I’m going to be doing some training on aspects of theme design in the future.
Since this is a pretty huge topic, I could use some advice on what aspects of PrestaShop themes you need help with. Here are some topics I came up with:
- adjusting colors of various theme elements
- changing shapes of various theme elements such as the block header backgrounds
- creating a full width logo (spans width of page)
- creating an advertising logo above the Featured Products section
- understanding how to use HTML and CSS with respect to theme modification
- installing and uninstalling themes
