Creating Poll categories

May 3, 2014 12:49 pm

Poll categories let you organize and group polls on your site so that you can easily edit and update information and make it easy for visitors to locate specific polls. For example, you could create a Current Events category to poll visitors on their opinions on current event topics.

To create a new poll category, take the following steps:

  1. Click on the Categories tab from within the Polls module.
  2. Click on the Add a New Category button.
  3. Enter a unique name for the category in the New Category field.
  4. If you want a graphic to appear instead of the category name when you or site visitors view the category, click the Browse button, select the image you want to use for the category, then select the Open button. The path to the image appears in the Upload Image field, and the image will be uploaded when you click the Add button. When you upload an image for a category, this image will replace the category name on some screens when a visitor views the poll. This means that the image you use for the category should either contain text or some image that adequately describes the category. Also, be sure to enter a descriptive name for the category because that will be used in the Blue interface for identification.
