How to export poll widget to Blogger.com

We’ve received a number of support emails asking for a more detailed explanation of how to export our polls to blogs, so I will be posting specific instructions for the popular blogging sites, starting with blogger.com:

1. Once you’ve finished creating your poll, copy the HTML code from “External poll HTML link”

2. On your Blogger dashboard, select “Manage Layout”- you will be redirected to a page titled “Add and Arrange Page Elements”

3. Click “Add a Page Element”

4. A new window will open, prompting you to “Choose a New Page Element”

5. One of the elements listed is “HTML/JavaScript – Add third-party functionality or other code to your blog”- click the “Add to Blog” button.

6. Give the poll a title if you’d like, then paste the HTML code into the content window, click “Save Changes”

7. That’s it- the window will close, and the poll will now appear on your blog!

    I recently use dPolls in Blogger.

    Due to my lack of awareness, I edited the code to exclude the “Powered by dPolls.com” link.

    This resulted in the poll service non-functional. I think it was suspended.

    I have now use the code in its entirety. And it works.

    But I’d like to know whether I can replace the image part with text instead? Some disabled users – visually poor or impaired – would rather ‘hear’ from texts. Or whether I can edit the ‘alt’ image element?

    Hi Taikor,
    We strongly advise against any changes to the html; we are aware of the problems you described, and will be addressing them in near future releases.
