How To Add PollDaddy Polls On WordPress Blogs in side bar

Yesterday i have tried to add a poll in the right side.

But i didnt know how to do that, i have been searching for the answer, but cant find the answer that i have worked out.
Now you can see a poll on my blog in the left side…. how is it?

1) First you need a polldaddy account, it is free… also you can find the polls link in our wordpress dashboard

2) click Polls -> Add new – First time it will ask for register… register free and get an account

3) Create Poll – with options you need (select narrow theme for side bars)

4) View Polls, and click the HTML Code

5)Copy Short Code

6) Goto Appearance ->Widgets

7) Activate / Drag Text widget to side bar

8) Enter a title and paste the short code in the content area

9) Thats all.

    Thank you so much for this step-by-step explanation. I did it but the font is too big for my blog page. How do I reduce the font size to say 10 or 8?

    thanks for the tutorial. worked for me (just don’t choose “wide.” It makes the poll too big for most blogs…

    thanks a lot.

    Thanks so much dude. Wonderfull tutorial. Very easy to follow…..My first poll was too big for the side bar but i found just another narrow poll that suits my side bar perfectly. Like Shekspere once said ” what’s with the poll design? all we need is a poll” lol

    Keep up the good work. God bless.

    Thanks, some users may not realize that the poll will show up if you switch to another post and I assume when a new post is created. If you create a post about your poll (includes the poll), the poll will not show up in your menu bar.
