Using the Poll Package
Once Qlue Poll is installed you can find the component under "components->qlue Poll". In the component menu you can create polls by clicking on the New button. When creating a new poll you have to type in a question, then add answers by clicking the green plus icon and typing them in the boxes that appear. When you're finished press save. In order to display the module on your site you will now need to create a poll module. Go to extensions->modules, then click the new button, find and select qlue poll. Select the poll you would like to display from the drop-down, configure any other settings you would like and save the module.
In order for the module to display you should make sure the a Position has been selected on the right hand side, the module has been set to published, also on the right hand side, and you have selected pages in the Menu Assignment tab.
Recaptcha from google allows you to prevent automated bots from voting on your polls. To enable Recaptcha please follow this guide.

Our modules are equipped with conditional fields meaning you only see the fields relevant to the options you have selected. So don't worry if you cant see some of the options listed bellow.
The Style tab contains most of the settings for customising the display of the module. Colours are selected with a colour picker or entered in the #ffffff format. Dimensions and sizes are entered in px or % (i.e. 12px, 10%). px is short for pixels, this defines a static size. % is percentage which defines a dynamic, relative, size.
