Note: The results for the poll can be viewed in the back-end as well.

Visitor Polls Stack Items

Any new poll will automatically display through a "Polls (Manage under TOOLS)" stack item, overriding old polls. If you want to have a poll be taken off but would like to keep it in the back-end, through the Visitor Polls tool you can set the Schedule Date / Schedule Time for the poll to yesterday (or back in time) and the most recent poll (date-wise and time-wise) is posted.

If you wish the stack item to display a specific question, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new "Polls (Manage under TOOLS)" stack item (if you did not have one set up for the website yet).
  2. Click the Gear icon next to your stack item.
  3. Click the Poll Settings tab and select a question of your choice in the "Poll" field. The default option for the field is "Automatically use the most recent poll".
  4. Optional: Enable or disable the Comments form (usually found below the poll choices) for the stack item.
  5. Click the Save Changes button.
