[Plugin: WP-Polls] Multiple Active Polls without Widgets (4 posts)

    I manage a blog about dating for my wife, and of course she has little to no idea exactly how or why this has happened, but here's the issue:

    She has multiple active polls, each embedded in a different blog post using the simple [poll=#] function call. She wants each of these polls to stay active forever.

    However, this does not seem possible. I've enabled the "display multiple polls" option in the "Current active poll" section of the poll options menu, but this results in a malfunction.

    I don't use widgets, so that's not a possible solution. Besides, these polls are inside the posts themselves, so I don't think a "widget" will help.

    Please advise - is it possible to have multiple open active polls, each unique poll embedded in a separate post? If so, what am I missing?

    Here are links:

    http://www.datingtales.net/2007/10/who-should-pay-on-the-first-date/

    You'll find "Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment." at or near the bottom of each post. The current option setting is "display multiple polls."

    Thank you.

    in the readme.html it states the shortcode is [poll id="1"] and not [poll=1] which is deprecated.

    Ahhhhh - RTFM. Isn't that always the answer? My apologies - I should have caught that on my own. I've made a small donation for your help and your efforts building this plugin (like I should have a long time ago). Thank you.
