    1. If current date is between your poll start date and end date then it will display all the polls in the widget.

  1. Hi,

    I want to use your plugin but with certain modification.

    Can you let me know what is the use of Custom Css tab ? When i try to add my CSS it does not take can you let me know how to apply CSS to the widget ?

    Second i wanted to add an loading image when you click the submit button for any poll or wherever there is an Ajax request?

    1. Reply for #1: Apply the css styling by inspecting the element in the poll with Firebug.
      Reply for #2: I haven’t included that feature in it as well as it will take some development time to do it.

  2. Hola,
    Cuando un visitante ingresa al sitio ve la encuesta resuelta con la cantidad votaciones, porcentajes y no deja votar a los nuevos visitantes del sitio.
    Consulta: Cómo hago para que muestre la encuesta sin resultados y permita votar cada vez que se ingrese al sitio?
    Saludos. Muchas gracias!!!

    1. Hola,
      En la opción de una encuesta Seleccione “Dirección IP” para el bloqueo de la encuesta por la opción para que se bloquee la encuesta para esa dirección IP en particular.
      Espero que ayude.
