How to Add Polls Inside Single Posts in Blogger


Have you ever tried to add polls into single posts in Blogger? Here is an in-depth tutorial on how to do just that.

If you find this tutorial useful, please leave a comment or a suggestion at the end of the post.

Step 1: Logging into Blogger Layout

Log into your blogger account. Go to Dashboard >> Layout (old interface: Design >> Page Elements)

Step 2: Adding the Poll gadget to Sidebar

Select "Add a Gadget" in your Sidebar area, scroll down to "Poll" and click it.




Step 3: Filling out the Poll form

Fill out the form. For Question, I wrote: "Was this information useful?". Fill out the rest of the "Create a poll" form.

Step 4: Viewing the Poll

When you've finished, click save. The newly created poll will show in your layout screen. View your blog in another tab, and your poll should be included in your blog.



But... it's not in the post, it's on the front page of the blog? That's ok. Keep reading to see how we'll deal with this.

Step 5: Locating the Poll code in the Source

Use your browser's menu to select Tools > View Source (in Chrome, at least).


 A large file will appear. Don't be concerned, just hit CTRL F and type the poll Question from Step 3.

Step 6: Copying the iframe code

Select everything from the beginning of the iframe tag to its end. Copy the selected code, and paste it in a .txt file (for example, in Notepad).

Step 7: Adding the iframe code to your blog post

Go to the Blog Post that needs to have the poll in it, and click Edit HTML.


At the bottom of your post, type the desired title of your poll, then in the next row, paste the iframe code from your .txt file. Publish your post.

Step 8: Removing the Poll from your Sidebar

We don't need the Poll in the Sidebar, so go back to layout and remove the poll. This won't delete the poll from your blog post, only from the Sidebar.

Refresh you blog's frontend page, and have a look at your post with a poll in it.

Step 9: Thanks for sharing...

  6. Hi there, thanks for sharing this.
    I intend to publish hundreds of posts, each with an identical poll - do I need to create a unique set of code for each poll, or can I do it once and just use that code for all posts?
    Thanks
