With the Crowdsignal Embed block, you can embed Crowdsignal polls (or surveys or votes) into your posts and pages. You need a Crowdsignal account to be able to create polls (or surveys or votes) before you can embed them into your posts or pages.
Example of an Embedded Crowsignal Poll:
- Go to crowdsignal.com and signup for a free account.
On your Crowdsignal Dashboard, create a new survey, poll, quiz, or rating, or select one you’ve already created.
- Get the custom link to share your poll
Either from the Dashboard or within the editor, find the “Share” button.
Within the Share Your Poll pop up, click “Copy to Clipboard”.
- Add a Crowdsignal Embed Block to your post/page
- Paste the Crowdsignal Poll link from step 2 into the text box
- Click the “Embed” button
If it’s a link that can be successfully embedded you will see a preview in your editor.
If you use a URL that can’t be embedded, the block shows the message “Sorry, this content could not be embedded.” You will have two choices: Try again with a different URL or convert to link.
Besides the Mover and Drag & Drop Handle, the Block Toolbar for the Crowdsignal embed shows four buttons:
- Transform to
- Change alignment
- Edit URL, and
- More options.
You can transform a Crowdsignal embed into a Paragraph, Columns, or Group. Transforming it into a Group would give you the ability to change the background color around the Crowdsignal embed.
- Wide width – Increase the width of the post beyond the content size
- Full width – extend the Crowdsignal post to cover the full width of the screen.
- Align left – Make the Crowdsignal post left aligned
- Align center – Make the Crowdsignal post alignment centered
- Align right – Make the Crowdsignal post align right
“Wide width” and “Full width” alignment need to be enabled by the Theme of your site.
Via the edit URL, you can change the Crowdsignal Embed URL in the embed block. Overwrite the existing URL and click on the “Embed” Button.
These controls give you the option to copy, duplicate, and edit your block as HTML.
Besides the Advanced section, the Crowdsignal embed has only one other setting in the “Block Settings” sidebar: Media Settings.
Via the Media Settings you can control the behavior of your embed when viewed from a smaller device, like on a phone screen.
The Toggle switch turns on or off the resize functionality for smaller devices. The default setting is “on” or blue.
“Off:” This embed may not preserve its aspect ratio when the browser is resized. In the off position, the toggle switch is gray.
“On:” This embed will preserve its aspect ratio when the browser is resized. The toggle switch turns blue in the “On” position.
The “Advanced” tab lets you add CSS class(es) to your block.
The “Additional CSS class(es)” lets you add CSS class(es) to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and style the block as you see fit.
