  • This plugin does not support Internet Explorer Browser. One of the goals of this plugin is to be js/css lightweight and jQuery free.

  • ACF Onyx Poll register fields via php to be able to use WordPress translation functions for field labels. So you won’t be able to view/edit the fields inside ACF Custom Fields Settings.

  • To enable a better/faster CRON you need to manually set your host cronjob to get https://domain.tld/wp-json/onyx/polls/cron endpoint or disable WP-Cron define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true); inside your wp-config and manually create the cron in your host/server

    • Option 1: To run every hour set the cron:
      0 * * * * wget -q -O - https://domain.tld/wp-json/onyx/polls/cron > /dev/null 2>&1

    • Option 2: if you disable the default WP-Cron:
      0 * * * * wget -q -O - https://domain.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron > /dev/null 2>&1
