bookmark_borderPoll Widget

In addition to being able to insert a poll within a form, you are also able to use a poll as a widget on your WordPress site.

Poll Widget

Inserting

The Poll widget is inserted the same as any other widget, but if you’re unfamiliar with the process, here’s how to do it.

  1. Within your WordPress admin dashboard, hover over Appearance, and click on Widgets.
  2. Locate the Polls widget and drag it to your desired widget area.
  3. Configure any settings you need.

Configuration

When adding the Poll widget, there are a few settings that you are able to configure.

  • Title
    This is simply the title that will be displayed within the widget.

  • Select a Form
    In this drop down, you will select the form that contains the poll you would like to be displayed here.

  • Display Mode
    Within this drop down, you have the option of either displaying the full poll, or only the results.

  • Display form title
    Check this box to display the form title within the widget.

  • Display form description
    Check this box to display the form description within the widget.

Advanced Options

  • Enable AJAX
    If you need to, you may enable AJAX submission of the poll when processed through the widget.

  • Disable script output
    If enabled, this will disable the CSS stylesheets and Javascript from being included in the page header. If the script output is disabled, you will need to include these elsewhere to function properly.

  • Tab Index Start
    Determines where, within the widget, tab indexing will start.

Additional Options

Additional options are also available, but apply to the form in it’s entirety. For more information on available features, take a look at the Poll settings article.
