Every time I vote in a pollEdit

I have a question: Every time I vote in a poll, my vote won't get counted. Why is that? Why is my vote not being counted and other users are?? Squallinoa 08 05:44, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm having the same problem, as are all users on my wiki. Is there discussion of this issue somewhere? --mnenyver 19:56, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Changing the width of your polls Edit

Polls are 40em wide by default. Wiki admins can make the poll widths changeable by adding

div.ajax-poll { width:auto !important ; }
to MediaWiki:common.css on your wiki. This will make all polls on your wiki be as wide as the "box" they're in, i.e. they'll usually expand to be as wide as the article body. You can now set its width by wrapping it in a div with a set width, or a table cell, or in any other layout box. Example:
<div style="width:250px;">
<poll>
How wide is this poll?
Wide
Not so wide
</poll>
</div>

Polls Width Edit

While on the help page for the polls it told me that I could change the width of polls to fit the "box" they are put in. I'm trying to put this box on the main page so I need it to fit a 50% box. I've done everything I think I'm supposed to but it's still not fitting inside. Is there a special place I'm supposed to put the "div.ajax-poll { width:auto !important; }" in the Common.css?-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  06:46, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Nevermind, all worked out.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  22:54, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikilinks in polls? Edit

Is there a way to include wikilinks in polls? When I try it, they don't show up. Thanks! —yoda8myhead 07:40, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

Every time I've tried doing this, it hasn't worked. I stopped trying. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 13:30, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
I am finding the same problem. Both external and wikilinks do not work. Anno1404 01:19, October 29, 2010 (UTC)
I've gotten so far as to make the link's text show up, but the text doesn't come out as link. zaros262

Update? Edit

I had heard a rumor awhile back that this extension was soon to be replaced by something spiffy and new the Wikia programmers were working on. Was any of that more than a rumor?

Votes Edit

Is there a way to see who voted for what? —This unsigned comment is by Ltearth (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

poll style Edit

It would be great if the number of votes could be displayed behind the questions, or in front even,. Currently having a new line, AND a new white line after each question is making sure the polls are very tall. User:Zurgat/Sig 13:00, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

Currently, AjaxPoll's stylesheet isn't being loaded for MonoBook. It only loads when Wikia skin is selected, and occasionally when Monobook is previewed. Possible cause is that the CSS is kept in the browser cache; refreshing removes the styles. It globally affects wikis using Monobook skin and the poll. It is supposed to load the following stylesheet: [1]BryghtShadow~talk~works~ 08:24, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Can't vote in Polls? Edit

For some reason, every time I try to vote in a poll on wikis (Glee Wiki specifically), the page just refreshes and my vote is not counted. Its been happening for a few months now, and its starting to get frustrating. If anyone could help I'd be very grateful! :)

Changing user settings of a poll.Edit

Is it possible to change a poll so that a single user or IP address can vote multiple times? TheGreatCanadianWookiee (talk) 13:22, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

it would seem that is not currently an option. I am researching the polls right now to see if i cannot come up with a better way to do polls via css and js. ~ Juper0 (talk) 08:55, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

Poll titke color & poll resultsEdit

Hi all,
We can change the poll title color by adding the following to MediaWiki:common.css on your wiki:
div.header { color:#006cb0 !important; }

But it will change all  <div class="header"></div> font color in the website with the common "header" class.

And now, I wonder if there's a way to get back the poll results as values to insert them in a text for example.
