WP-Polls
[resolved] Next or previous poll displayed instead of correct poll (4 posts)

    I post quite a few polls (usually weekly) on my blog, and am planning a poll event for this month. The past few polls have been pulling up the previous week's poll instead of the new poll whenever I post them. After clearing my site's cache and editing the post with the new poll several times, the current one will finally display on the post.

    This was merely a weekly 15-minute inconvenience until I realized the previous week's post (TV comedies) is also displaying the new poll (TV dramas) instead of the old one. This could be a huge issue as I plan to have multiple overlapping polls for a bracket tournament beginning next week.

    It's not an issue with my browser (Chrome), as my sister, on a different computer/network, sees the same issue.

    My site is TV Breakroom, and the last two posts are where the issue is. Could this be because I have too many polls (120) or too many options in some of them (100+)? Help would be appreciated! I've been using this plugin for years without this issue.

    I hope you are using the correct short code which is [poll id="1"] instead of [poll="1"] because it seems that WP 3.9 doesn't support the later one anymore

    That seemed to fix it - thanks a bunch! I was using the poll link in the post editor to generate the poll code.
