    Polls

    How long does it take for a post including a poll to show up? I had got to the screen that lets you put in your options, and then it went nuts and ate it! The next three times I tried to do it, it didn't show up at all, and wouldn't let me put my options in! I was like, "WTF?!" Help!

    Hiya Precious,

    I think you're going to have to be more explicite than "it went nuts and ate it". What exactly did you click on when it went nuts, and what did the screen show? Better yet, if you could take a screenshot and email it to me (jeff at holyzoo dot com) that would be great.

    BTW, I just tried a test poll, and it worked.

    Steve, when you say something weird is going on, can you tell me what?

    thanks!

    I tried to make a poll myself, just to see if I could do one, and I never found the way to make the list of options. Then I hit the little 'list' option, and well, it only wanted to know if I wanted numeric or alphabetical options. I never could figure out where to put my poll options.

    For example:

    I'm sure it's me, but what am I doing wrong?[list=1][*]is this a list?[*]Or is this a list?[*]No, this is a list[*]How many lists can i get for one?[/list=1]

    That was just a LIST I see. Where is the poll???
    I am the winner in any event.

    Weird, I'm not sure what's going wrong!

    Can someone try this?

    1) Click "New Thread"

    2) Enter something for the Subject

    3) Enter "just a test" in the Message

    4) Scroll down and select "Yes! post a poll"

    5) Click "Submit New Thread"

    6) (you should now be on the second page, where you enter the questions):
    Enter some text into the Question field

    7) Enter some text for "Option 1", "Option 2", etc. For example:
    Option 1: Red
    Option 2: Blue
    Option 3: Green
    Option 4: Purple

    8) Click "Submit New Poll"

    That should do it. If it fails somewhere, can you tell me what step it died on?

    thanks!

    I just made a really lame poll...so it works, now if I could think before I post, we'd have a great combination.
    I am the winner in any event.

    That was what I did. . . it checked out when I got to the screen to enter my options. . . And then the two other times I tried, it didn't even let me get to that screen at all. Will try again.
