    In one post, I have a poll which now appears on every one of my blog’s pages, underneath my footers. I have tried deleting the poll, which removed it from the layout as well, but when I created a new poll in the same post, the poll appears under the footer again. Why is this happening and how do I stop it? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is amybeingamy.wordpress.com.

    You’re not the first person to complain of this issue. I’m not sure this will fix it but try: go to Settings->Writing and make sure “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML” and then edit the post that originally contained the poll, making any change at all and then hitting UPdate. See if that fixes it.

    Amy, have you tried above steps? I’m having a hard time reproducing this problem though.

    Raincoaster, could you link me the other threads you’ve seen with this issue?

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I looked and couldn’t find it, but it was at least three days ago if I recall correctly.

    Hi guys,

    I’ve tried the above steps but no luck, whatever poll in contained in that post appears again. It’s most odd.

    Thanks for your time anyway.

    kardotim, with it being at the bottom of the page, is there any chance this is a WP inserted ad of some kind?

    I’ve just reported the problem to our developers. It seems the ‘More’ tag is causing this issue.

    I’ll inform you once I know more. Thank you for your patience.

    Why did you remove my post, that’s not really helpful at all?
    What right do you have to remove it?
    We’re not getting anywhere like this!

    @bertholdbouman Your thread has been closed, not removed. Discussing the same issue in one thread keeps it clear for everybody and easier for us to investigate.

    #1101913

    Well, that’s the same isn’t it?
    Others can’t react on it anymore, thanks for your ‘help’.

    Nothing to say now? What right do you have to close it? I insist!

    Please note that kardotim is Staff. It’s a waste of time for there to be more than one thread open on the same issue. He has said:

    What’s need is your patience.

    need = needed

    Then he should make himself known as staff. He didn’t do that in his email, and not here either.

    I don’t need patience, I already found what is causing it.

    Look at the background behind his username please and note the “Happiness Engineer”. Also if you have received an email form Staff then please communicate by email. Posting here is a duplication of effort that wastes time.

    He notified me by email he removed my topic, we were not discussing the topic by email. Not that it is any of your business. What is your interest in this topic? Internet police?

    #1101934

    Can’t even discuss anything with him as the return address of his only email is (email redacted)

    #1101938

    @kardotim No reply? Can’t reply to your email either. My thread is dead as a dodo, not much I can do is there?
