How to Create Polls in Dolphin 7.1

Hello and welcome! In today’s blog I’ll show you how to add polls to your Dolphin 7.1 website. By doing this you can get input from your users on a variety of topics. Before we begin we need to install the polls module. A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7.1 base modules can be found here:

Once we have the module installed, we can access it by clicking “Polls” on the main menu bar of the site. Polls in Dolphin 7.1 are added from the user side of the website and not from the admin.
