<h1>Poll Manager : New / Edit</h1>
<p>This page lets you create or edit a poll for your site.</p>
<h3><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Toolbar Icons</span></h3><p><strong>Preview</strong>: Clicking this icon will open a pop-up window with a preview of the poll as it will appear on your site: title, options, and vote/results buttons.<br /><br /><strong>Save</strong>: Saves the new / edited poll and returns to Manager.<br /><br /><strong>Close</strong>: Cancels the action. Any modification is lost. If opened to edit, the poll remains checked-in.</p><h3><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Details</span></h3><p><strong>Title</strong>: Type here the title question of the poll as it will appear on your site (100 characters max).<br /><br /><strong>Lag</strong>: Enter here the number of seconds users have to wait before being able to vote in the same poll again. This interval is&nbsp;expressed in seconds. The default value is 86400 (24 hours).&nbsp; <br /></p><ul style="MARGIN-LEFT: 40px"><li>For 24 hours use: 86400.</li><li>For 12 hours use: 43200.&nbsp; </li><li>For 6 hours use: 21600.</li><li>For 1 hour use: 3600.</li></ul><p><strong>Options</strong>: (input fields 1 to 12) Fill in here the various options the user can select from to cast his vote. Empty items will not be displayed. Users may select only one of the possible answers.<br /><br /><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">NOTE:</span> You may add additional options after the poll has commenced. Deleting options will corrupt the data, so you should create a new poll.<br /><br /><span style="COLOR: rgb(255,0,0)"><strong>Warning</strong>: </span>As of 03/02/05 this is bugged because you are allowed to save a poll without items, which will generate a mysql error. <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">You should at least have two options filled out.</span><br /><br /><strong>Show on menu items</strong>: Select here which page(s) the poll should be displayed on. Allows to link the poll to specific menu items only. Works together with the &quot;Polls&quot; Module (mod_poll) which will display the configured polls. You may select multiple Menu Item Links.<br /><br /><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">NOTE:</span> This means that polls assigned to specific Menu Items must have the 'Polls' module assigned to the same Menu Items to be displayed (Modules-&gt; Site Modules).<br /><br /></p>
