This page lets you create or edit a poll for your site.
Preview: Clicking this icon will open a pop-up window with a preview of the poll as it will appear on your site: title, options, and vote/results buttons.
Save: Saves the new / edited poll and returns to Manager.
Close: Cancels the action. Any modification is lost. If opened to edit, the poll remains checked-in.
Title: Type here the title question of the poll as it will appear on your site (100 characters max).
Lag: Enter here the number of seconds users have to wait before being able to vote in the same poll again. This interval is expressed in seconds. The default value is 86400 (24 hours).
Options: (input fields 1 to 12) Fill in here the various options the user can select from to cast his vote. Empty items will not be displayed. Users may select only one of the possible answers.
NOTE: You may add additional options after the poll has commenced. Deleting options will corrupt the data, so you should create a new poll.
Warning: As of 03/02/05 this is bugged because you are allowed to save a poll without items, which will generate a mysql error. You should at least have two options filled out.
Show on menu items: Select here which page(s) the poll should be displayed on. Allows to link the poll to specific menu items only. Works together with the "Polls" Module (mod_poll) which will display the configured polls. You may select multiple Menu Item Links.
NOTE: This means that polls assigned to specific Menu Items must have the 'Polls' module assigned to the same Menu Items to be displayed (Modules-> Site Modules).
