When making changes to the poll settings, these changes will take effect for any polls within this particular form. If you would like other polls to have different settings, they will need to be within a different form.

  • Results
    Enabled by default. If disabled, results will no longer be shown after a vote has been placed on the poll.

  • Results Link
    Enabled by default. Disabling this option will remove the “View Results” link that displays before the vote has been placed.

  • Percentages
    Enabled by default. Disabling this will remove the percentage listing from the poll results.

  • Counts
    Enabled by default. Similar to the Percentages option, but enables or disables the vote counts.

  • Style
    Adjusts the color of the results. The available options are Green, Blue, Red, and Orange.

  • Block Repeat Voters
    Disabled by default. Enabling this option will allow you to use cookies to disable users from voting more than once. Within this option, you are also able to set the time frame between repeat votes.
