Surveys by Feedback Cat


Surveys by Feedback Cat is the first WordPress plugin that lets you read people’s minds.

Well, sort of.

When you use our plugin you’ll be able to know what your users are really thinking.

Unfortunately, though, “reading minds” here doesn’t mean doing anything out of the X-Men movies. We’re not talking mind reading in that sense.

Instead, Surveys by Feedback Cat lets you create surveys and get direct user feedback. With this feedback, you will know what your users are thinking. You can then use their thoughts from the survey to grow your business more effectively.

So, do you have 2 minutes?

That’s how “long” it takes to set up Surveys by Feedback Cat. You’ll find complete installation instructions below. But don’t expect anything long or time-consuming. It really is easy to get up and running with Surveys by Feedback Cat. You can do it in 2 minutes. Seriously!

Then there’s the whole issue of price.

Brace yourself. Sit down if you need to. Stop chewing a chicken bone, so you won’t choke on it.

Libre. Gratis. 免費.

You can set up your surveys and get powerful user feedback at NO charge.

Speaking of free – Surveys by Feedback Cat is proudly 100%, bull**** free.

We’re NOT going to be cheapskates and only let you do X number of surveys for free.

We also respect you enough to NOT shove a branding link inside your feedback forms. They are your surveys, after all. We’re just along for the ride.

Got all that?

Maybe relates to their being no recent updates, but I installed the app without any problems, and customized the form, and clicked save. Nothing appears. Even changed the display frequency to “every page”, and still nothing. Too bad, looked like a cool app. Abandoned??

i love minimal style from this plugin! there are just 2 more comments. 1) it would be nice just to show a small “+” icon in the button. 2) i wish i could change colors, for now i dislike color of the button because it doesn’t match with my website :/ anyway thanks for this cool plugin! hugs!

It’s that simple, your plug-in has only one page to create polls. Not surveys, polls. And there’s no admin page to understand or set up the behavior. Plus, there’s no way to delete a poll.
