Scroll down for instructions on how to create a Polls Archive.

How To Add A Polls Archive?

Go to WP-Admin -> Pages -> Add New.
Type any title you like in the post’s title area.
If you ARE using nice permalinks, after typing the title, WordPress will generate the permalink to the page. You will see an ‘Edit’ link just beside the permalink.
Click ‘Edit’ and type in pollsarchive in the text field and click ‘Save’.
Type [page_polls] in the post’s content area.
Click ‘Publish’.

If you ARE NOT using nice permalinks, you need to go to WP-Admin -> Polls -> Poll Options and under Poll Archive -> Polls Archive URL, you need to fill in the URL to the Polls Archive Page you created above.

Why doesn’t my poll’s answers add up to 100%?

It is because of rounding issues. To make it always round up to 100%, the last poll’s answer will get the remainding percentage added to it. To enable this feature, add this to your theme’s functions.php: add_filter( 'wp_polls_round_percentage', '__return_true' );

How Does WP-Polls Load CSS?

WP-Polls will load polls-css.css from your theme’s directory if it exists.
If it doesn’t exists, it will just load the default polls-css.css that comes with WP-Polls.
This will allow you to upgrade WP-Polls without worrying about overwriting your polls styles that you have created.

Why In Internet Explorer (IE) The poll’s Text Appear Jagged?

To solve this issue, Open poll-css.css
Find: /* background-color: #ffffff; */
Replace: background-color: #ffffff; (where #ffffff should be your background color for the poll.)
