Why can't I type inside the poll module?
Starting a new hub and need a poll question. It has been added but when I "edit" the poll it won't let me type a title or ask the question. It remains blank but I can save it and there it is the poll with no question. Is there a trick I should know?
I don't know the reason that this happens, but I can tell you that if you click Done Editing at the top of your article, then click Edit again, when you go into the Poll module, you will be able to type in it.
I have had this happen with Photo modules, Poll modules, and callout modules. Usually this happens after I have been working on a hub for a while, but it has happened when I go into the module after making a change to a different module. All I can tell you is that getting out of editing mode, then back into it makes it possible to do again.
I hope this helps.
Linda's tip should clear the problem. If not, have you tried simply deleting the poll module and adding a new one? A few times I had problems getting the video module to work and deleting it and adding a new one worked.
I tried as you suggested with no luck. I did finally go on my laptop and could go into the poll and ask my questions with no problems. Since this was a new hub I had been working on it for a long time so maybe tomorrow I will have better success. Thanks for your help.

Awhile back we were advised to remove all ads except for two or HP would come by later and do it for us. I dutifully removed all of my "extras", but am now continually seeing articles, some of them fairly new, with many, many ads. When I place ads on my hubs, I am...

The code modules are wonderful. Here are a few suggestions:Some of the formatting options (VB, C++, etc.) don't handle some comment delimiters properly. If an apostrophe is detected, the line of code is broken at the apostrophe and several blank lines are inserted. It disrupts the flow of the...

I am a fan of both HP and Squidoo and there are two things where Squidoo score over HP big time.Comments: Leave a comment is so yesterday. Squidoo comment module can be used in a variety of ways. I would love to see a comment module that doesn't look like one. In fact it should be such that it...

For longer hubs, it would be good to have a module which we could place near the top of our hubs and list the different topics covered in the hub.These would be links that when clicked would carry the viewer to that specific section of the Hub. When the hub author selected the module and opened it...

I use it to get feedback from readers of my troubleshooting hubs about whether the hub helped or not. If the poll showed results and a high percentage of "yes" votes, it might be an incentive for readers to continue reading. Normally I put polls at the bottom of hubs, but maybe they...
