Well another version of WordPress was released and its now running the site. Some significant changes have been made and I will need to modify the sites theme at some point to take advantage of them. One of the changes that has already had a benefit is the automatic plugin update notifier. This has allowed me to update and enable the poll functionality. It has actually been part of the site for a while but for reasons I can't quite recall was never enabled.
Currently the choice of polls is limited but expect that to increase overtime. If you are browsing the site and notice any bugs or things that need improving let me know. If I'm going to update the theme its an ideal time to fix the problems too.
