I have just put a quick poll together to ask a couple of questions. I wanted to provide some detail against each option (a paragraph of text) and thought that this looked a little messy with the text of the option. I popped an html BR tag in to push things down to the next line of text, the preview on the right looked a lot better.
Whilst experimenting I also added div tags and a couple of urls (using the option from the toolbar which inserted the markdown).
When I posted the topic all of the html and markdown got displayed as plain text.
Is there a reason why either html or markdown are not supported within the polls, or, have I tried using them incorrectly in this context. I appreciate that the polls are probably supposed to be fairly lightweight but being able to offer a more rich experience (especially with the links) I would have thought would be beneficial?
Any info received gratefully
- Keep polls as they are<br/>There is no reason why polls need to be updated at all, they are supposed to be lightweight and your intended use of them is beyond reasonable scope
- Educate Rob on how to use polls correctly<br/>Someone hold him down and we can take it in turns to hit him with a copy of HTML for Dummies, 85th Edition.
- Upgrade polls to be even more awesome<br/>Currently polls do not support html or markdown, but they could and we think this is an awesome idea, thanks for mentioning it
