Daylight Saving poll

Whoops – I tried to get the daylight saving poll in the sidebar and deleted it altogether.

There were 101 votes and the results were:

Starts too soon ends too late: 54%

Should last all year: 13%

Shouldn’t happen at all: 16%

Is a conspiracy against early risers: 5%

Other 12%

If anyone can tell me how to get polls into the sidebar, an electronic box of chocolates awaits you.

Deleting the poll deleted comments too – I think there were seven, all of which, I think supported my opposition to daylight saving starting this soon.

    There are several options there to edit the poll, view results, delete, preview, send to editor, and get the HTML code.

    You can add a PollDaddy poll to your sidebar with the same process above, but copy and paste the shortcode into a text widget. If you would like to use a previous poll in your sidebar, use the HTML code link on the poll list for a poll that was created previously.

    Thanks, Scrubone – that’s what I thought I was doing but it said you had to delete a post if it had the poll. I did that and still got only the title in the sidebar.
