[Plugin: PollDaddy Polls] Sidebar Widget not working (5 posts)

    Hi

    I have installed PollDaddy and created a poll with Narrow settings. The I get the shortcode and goto my widget section and create a new text widget. I paste the shortcode [polldaddy poll=11231231] into the body of the widget and give it a title.

    But when I goto the frontpage, the widget is displayed with the code and not the poll itself. Please help what am I doing wrong?

    Try pasting the javascript code into the text widget. Shortcodes don't work in widgets, do they?

    Shortcodes do not work in text widgets on wp.org, however I am going to add this to the next update.

    Polldaddy is alright. Have they made a Flash version yet? I like sodaheads poll widget which is easy to install and runs in flash so it doesn't hang the page up http://www.sodahead.com/
