Post A Poll On Your Posts

A friend of mine once had a problem with hosting a poll on her website. She did not want to have polls to appear on her side navigations, and wanted to host multiple polls at that. Worse still, she wanted it to be free.

Yeah that's a lady blogger for you. They want all good things but have no idea how to get it done. Thankfully, Andy had shared a blog toy that does multiple poll hosting for free, and I want to share it with you.

It's at DPolls.com. Dpolls.com sets itself apart from other free poll services, by displaying hosted polls via <iframes>. Because most blog publishing softwares forbid the use of <javascript> tags in the posts, using <iframes> translates to the ability to show polls on posts. (Blogger, for one, prohibits the use of Javascript in posts.)

Signing up with Dpolls.com was merely a form to fill, thereafter an email verification. And in less than 2 minutes, I got my first poll started.



The appearance of the poll is largely based on the Windows icons. They are also clean and uncluttered. There is a mini calculation-roll animaation going on when the results are displayed, quite cute I think. Hopefully the Windows backgrounds on the polls don't deter alot of you.

It's free at Dpolls.com.
