Development and Contributions

  • The plugin was originally developed by for Joomla 2.5 and 3 with the original plugin name Sexy Polling.
  • After the Sexy Polling plugin was removed from the web and the support was not continued, a fork of the plugin was migrated to Joomla 4 with the new plugin name Sexy Polling Reloaded. The migrated plugin still supports Joomla 3.10.
  • Further contributions are welcome! Use the download or support link to get to the Github repository.


  • Dutch, English, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Slovenian, Turkish


  • The PHP extension intl (Internationalization) has to be activated, i.e. the php.ini file must contain the following line: extension=intl
  • Installation errors with v4.1.x plugin versions, failing with an error ... column country cant have a default value, can be avoided if installing a plugin release v5.0.0 or later.
  • For a new installation of the plugin, simply install the latest released version.
  • If you want to reuse data from the former Sexy Polling plugin, do not uninstall the former Sexy Polling plugin. Instead, just install the Sexy Polling Reloaded plugin. It will re-use the existing database tables.
  • Joomla Update System is supported.

Works well

Worked as expected on J4.
Set up of custom polls, answers, layout, features, etc all are done from Components > Sexy Polling Reloaded
Ease of use
- Enable from: System > Plugin.
- Get the poll configured from: Components > Sexy Polling Reloaded
- Take it live: Content > Site-Module
I used this to: Running a simple poll on a website. The first poll is live on: spiica dot inkind dot in.

Finger Weg!

Diese Erweiterung hat mein Joomla System fast zerstört! Bei der Installation nur reine Fehler! Und die Deinstallation eine Qual!
Ease of use
Schlecht! Konnte es ja nicht testen, da diese Erweiterung mein System fast zerstört hätte!
I used this to: Für nichts! Wollte es zum Voten verwenden, aber diese Erweiterung verursacht nur Probleme
Owner's reply: Since not receiving any additional information, I can only provide some general feedback:
- Until today, in the support area (i.e. Github issues), there are no issues reported that the plugin might have negative impacts on the overall Joomla installation.
- Also, no issues are reported about problems during uninstalling.
- Since plugin version v4.1.7, sometimes errors occur during installation if a MySQL version earlier than 5.7.24 (8.0.13) is used. In this case, the earlier module version v4.1.6 can be installed instead.
- Sometimes, user face errors if the PHP exension "intl" (Internationalization) is not activated. This can be resolved by adding "extension=intl" to the php.ini file.
- The mentioned installation requirements, are documented in the description of the extension and also in the Readme file on Github.
- If individual issues are reported on Github by following the support link, I try to provide short term support.

Thank you very much Jefferson, for rescue it!
Ease of use
This is a lil bit triky, but if you one time knows the way, its forever and all ist easy
This is a lil bit hmmm. I don't need it ^^, lol. So i cant sy anything about it. But it works perfect, so i think, the support cant be bad ;
This is a lil bit dificult, because this tool is so powerfull, i think you can write a book for it.
I used this to: I was very sad when I found out that sexy-polling was no longer developed. But when I found out that Jefferson was sort of saving it, all was right with the world again. Thank you so much!
