You have placed the poll in a post and not in a text widget. http://en.support.wordpress.com/polls/#adding-a-poll-to-your-sidebar http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/ January 2, 2012 at 10:19 pm #788916 hdsugarshackMember I know I placed in the post on purpose. But when I enter the code into the text widget so it can also be in my side bar it wouldnt show it January 2, 2012 at 10:26 pm #788919 hdsugarshackMember See this is the code I entered In the text widget [ polldaddy poll= 5806630] January 2, 2012 at 10:36 pm #788921 raincoasterMember When adding a poll to your sidebar, you may need to update its design to use the Narrow style to ensure that it properly fits. Try that. And don’t put the space between the opening bracket and the “p”. January 2, 2012 at 10:48 pm #788922 auxclassMember Your Poll worked fine for me in a test blog when I take the space out “[ poll…” take the space out – the space is not liked at all as @RC noted above January 2, 2012 at 11:02 pm #788927 hdsugarshackMember Thank you, I will try that. January 2, 2012 at 11:05 pm #788928 hdsugarshackMember So the brackets you mean take out? So it should look like this Pollydaddypoll= 5806630 January 2, 2012 at 11:09 pm #788930 auxclassMember [polldaddy poll= 5806630] Take out the space between the “[” and the “p” – or just paste in the code I have above in a text widget in your sidebar – worked fine in my test blog. January 2, 2012 at 11:45 pm #788937 hdsugarshackMember Thank you I will try that ! January 3, 2012 at 12:28 am #788965 hdsugarshackMember Do u see the poll? On my site January 3, 2012 at 12:40 am #788970 timethiefMember No. I see the poll in the post only. January 3, 2012 at 12:43 am #788973 hdsugarshackMember Yes, That’s what i was trying to figure out why. What i did is i got the text widget then i put the title and then the code. That’s weird its not working January 3, 2012 at 2:18 am #788998 panaghiotisadamMember A poll can show up in one place only. If you want it in your sidebar, remove it from the post. January 3, 2012 at 2:25 am #789004 hdsugarshackMember OHH! okay thank you! January 3, 2012 at 2:27 am #789005 hdsugarshackMember Take a look! I got it finally!
