Shortening your polls

That is the basics of doing a poll. To make polls a bit smaller, you however need to be an administrator. To shorten them, put the amount of pixels you like. Type in:

<div style="width (amount of pixels here)px;">

So for example, 125 px, it would be written like this;

<div style="width:125px;">

Administrators can make the width changeable by adding this.

div.ajax-poll { width:auto !important; }

So. If you did a shorter poll it should look like

<div style="width:125px;">
<poll>
