Polls Documentation

Getting Started

Once you've installed the Polls Module, you can create your first poll. Click the "Create a Poll" and fill out the following: your poll question, any options you want the user to select from, and the status. A status of "Open" means the poll will be shown, and "Closed" means the poll will be hidden from view.

You must have a minimum of two options for a given poll, and can add as many options as you want. During creation, you can add more options, reorder how they will be displayed, and remove them. Once you are satisfied with the poll, click "Submit" to save it.

User votes are limited by using a cookie (optional). Setting 'Limit Votes' to no allows users to vote an unlimited number of times. Once you've created your poll, you will find the ID of that poll on the "Dashboard" page. You will need that ID for the following template tag to display your poll in a template: {exp:polls:poll poll_id="your_poll_id" output_html="1"}

Easy, right? Read on to learn how to customize things even more!
