Hi. I created a wordpress blog page for my podcast which I will be launching this summer. I created a poll on my latest blogpost, however I realize that because I made the poll in the blog post, any future post will push it down, and eventually off the main page. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, however this particular poll is for my blog guests to vote on helping me choose the content for my first podcast episode which won't be happening for another 2 months. Now, I know I can just keep on providing a direct link to that specific entry, but is there a setting somewhere that lets me always keep that blog post at the top of the blog and/or is there a way to put a poll into a WIDGET, which would put it on the side of the page, but it would always be there in the same spot for people to see?
Also, as far as forums go. What is the recommended easiest way to insert forums onto the page? I have read up a little bit on the subject, but most of the threads were at least 12-18 months old, and I am not sure if there are now easier methods for putting a fourm on the blog. I am not after anything fancy, just a simple forum.
Finally. Once I am ready to record the fi rst podcast, I will in fact be purchasing the storage upgrade. Once I upload the podcast, and other ones in the future as I record more, will I be provided with a permalink for each episode, so I can make an archives page for my blog where people can access all the old episodes? Is there an option to give each episode a summary?
The blog I need help with is evilepisodespodcast.wordpress.com.
