Hi all,

Forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section I wasnt 100% sure.

I came across this post: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=335768 which provides a solution for including a poll within an article but this is for Joomla 1.x

I'm running Joomla! 1.5 and wondered if there was a solution for adding a poll to an article for the latest release of Joomla.

Any thoughts?

Regards,

-P.

Solved...after a bit of extra digging. If in doubt, search. If still in doubt, keep searching.

1) Go to Module Manager
2) Select the poll you want to load.
3) Rename the position by typing in a unique reference, eg. poll_16. (I didnt realise you could type in that field)
4) Go to Article Manager
5) Edit your article and where you want to insert the poll, type: {loadposition poll_16}
6) Click save/apply.

It would be nice if you could add a quick poll to an article. Having to do what was said above seems a bit of a headache. Something quick like in phbBB
