Creating a Poll in Joomla is pretty simple. But I know that Joomla doesn’t seem simple at all. When I first installed it, I was lost as could be. So, I will explain step by step how to create a poll in aprender joomla 2.5 desde cero.
Log in to your admin area. When you log in, you will see the Control Panel interface. At the top of you Joomla window you will see Home, Site, Menu, etc. Click Components gt; Poll at the top of your window. The Poll Manager page will be the next page that you see. At the top right of your browser you will see some buttons. Click on the New button.
The next page is where you will need to fill in the questions for the poll that you are creating. Enter the name of your poll in the first field. Enter the amount of seconds that a person must wait before voting again. Click yes if you want the poll published as soon as you create it, or no if you want to wait until another time to publish it. Enter your options in the fields below that. You can use as many fields as you need.
On the right side of the page you can choose to place the poll on all of the pages or on one particular page. Click the Save button at the top right hand corner. You will see the poll that you just created on the next page. You can click on the name of the poll to edit it.
Now you will need to publish this poll to make it appear on your site. So, click Modules gt; Site Modules at the top of your browser. You will see a list of things that you have on your site. Find your poll that you just created. Next to your poll you will see an “X” under published. Click on that “X” to make your poll go live. Now you will see your poll on the page that you assigned it to.
You can add more than one poll to your website if you want too. To add more polls, repeat the steps above. You can change this poll later on if you want too, by going to the poll manager and clicking on the name of the poll.
