How to: insert URLs, Images and Smilies in Polls

Post by Berlie » Wed Oct 19, 2005 10:41 am

You now have the ability to insert bbcode and smilies into poll options.

This will let you have the poll option be a direct link to a forum post, an image or a smilie.

I discovered that it doesn't like to be edited though. After you post the poll and go back to edit, it inserts a bunch of gibberish into the poll code which you have to take out before submitting the edit or it messes it all up.

So when you create a poll option just type in the bbcode like you would in a post. For example:

to insert a clickable link as the Poll option:

Code: Select all

Poll Option: [url=]Eternum 1: Tercet Rhymer[/url]
Poll Option: [url=]zero: to touch winds of forever[/url]

Should come in handy for the Challenge voting.
