How to create a website with Joomla 1.5: Poll

In this tutorial we will show you how to add a poll to your website.

Creating a Poll in Joomla 1.5

Let's place a poll in order to find out what visitors think about your new site.

Follow the steps below to add a poll to your Joomla site:

Step 1 From the top menu in the Joomla admin area choose Components -> Polls:

Step 2 Click [New] from the top right menu. Let's call the poll: "What do you think about our site?".

Step 3 In the left menu we will list the poll options: "Great", "Not bad", "Awful".

Step 4 To save the new poll, click on [Save] from the top right menu.

Step 5 Now the poll has to be made public, i.e. to be published. For this purpose click on Extensions -> Module Manager from the top menu:

Step 6 Choose [New] from the top - right menu, find Poll from the options listed and check it.

Step 7 Click on "Next" from the top right menu.

Step 8 Set the poll title to: What do you think about our new site?

Step 9 Set "Show title" to "No".

Step 10 From the right box, Module Parameters > Poll select the poll called "What do you think about our new site".

Step 11 Click on [Save] from the top right menu and you will have the poll published on your frontpage.
