Can you please explain how the poll capsule works.
Why is it when a vote has been made in a poll that the results remain showing instead of showing the original poll so others can vote as well? Is there a way to fix, or better yet, prevent that?r
maybe the poll will take 24 hours to update? I never notice the polls in my hub.
I have noticed that the polls are doing the same thing on my hubs. The poll results stay in view mode showing the end results. It may be that it is only visible to us on our own hubs, but when others view it, they are able to vote. This must be the case as others are still voting.
When you look at the results of the polls in your own hubs they stay opened until you close the document. After you close the document and then reopen it, the poll should be just the way it was before you checked the results.
I've noticed that it is possible to view the results in polls in anyone's hub and if I do that there is usually a link that says "go back and vote," under the graph, meaning I can go back to the original form before I viewed the results.
My polls are working fine. I think you'll find that if you close your hub and then reopen it, the poll will be just as it was before you viewed the results.

Have you ever used a Poll capsule in one of your hubs?My first time was today, in four new hubs which make "A Hitchhiking Saga." Fun way to invite participation from readers!Where have you put the code outside Hubpages to bring traffic to your hub?

This may have been asked for before, but I couldn't find it in search.Sometimes after writing a poll, or setting up the title of a comment capsule, I'd notice a typo or think of a change I wanted to make or a poll option I should have added. But once the hub goes live, and a single person adds a...

Under certain circumstances, the top one or two poll choices are obscured in the http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/polls when you "click poll title to view voting results."If the capsule omits a title, the gray background for the question overlays the top two choices, whether pie or bar graph...

It would be very nice if we could close a poll capsule in such a way that:A. No further votes can be made by visitors.B. The previous results are still displayed.C. A little sign says “Poll Closed.” or some such.
