NOTE: The first time you visit the SNO Polls tab, you will see a button at the top of the page to “Import Legacy Poll Data.” Make sure to click this to pull in any old polls that were created using the WP-Polls plugin, as opposed to the new SNO Polls plugin.
Creating a New Poll
Click on “Add New Poll” under the SNO Polls tab on the left navigation bar in the WordPress dashboard.
Enter the poll question, possible answers, and any images to correspond with those answers (if desired).
Review the poll start date, end date, and other settings in the Poll Options box on the right hand side of the page.
Click the “Publish” button to make your poll live.
Adding a Poll to a Story
Create your poll.
While adding/editing a story, place your cursor in the place you’d like the poll to go. Usually, it works best to press enter, giving the poll it’s own line in the text editing box.
Click the SNO Add Story Element button above the text editing window.
A pop-up window will give you all of the different story element options. Click the button for SNO Poll.
Select the poll you would like to embed, set the design settings, and click the “Insert” button in the right hand corner of the window.
A line of short code will now show up in your story.
Click Update/Publish and go to view the story to see how your poll looks to a visitor.
Adding a SNO Poll Widget
Click on Widgets under the Appearance tab on the left navigation bar in the WordPress dashboard.
Open the Widget Area where you would like to place the Poll Widget (on the right side).
Drag the SNO Poll Widget from the left hand side of the page into the Widget Area.
