    I’m using a poll on my shapeuc site and while it shows on the page of all the posts (http://shapeuc.wordpress.com/posts/) it doesn’t show on the archive page http://shapeuc.wordpress.com/category/students/. Is there any way to make it appear in full on both pages?

    Thanks

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

    Only if you switch to a theme in which category pages display posts as on the main page – see here:

    Is there really no way round this? If I switch to a different theme then I seem to have to set up all my widgets, header size etc again and that takes time which I don’t have. Any thoughts would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    Can excerpts be used?

    You’re welcome, but “only” means “only”! There would be a way around this if you were talking about images, but it doesn’t apply to objects inserted via shortcodes – see note 3 in the post I linked to.
    The only thing you can do is insert a note in the Excerpt box of the post editor to inform viewers that this post includes a poll, maybe also add the link to the original Polldaddy page with your poll.

    Thanks. So many pitfalls picking a theme. So hard to know what you need it to do before you pick the theme and then you find it can’t do everything.

    if I change themes is here a way to take all the widgets through as well or is it necessary to reenter those?

    More precisely, the widgets may move to Inactive: if you change from a theme to a similarly designed one, the widgets stay in place.

    But it’s always safer to keep a back-up of the content of text widgets in particular, just in case (although these too can be retrieved if you lose them).
