Poll Widget – No longer do you have to use a short code in a text widget to get a poll in your side bar! Just use the new Poll Widget. But there’s more… You can also set the new Poll Widget to “Default (Most Recent Poll)” – which will then populate the Poll Widget with the most recent poll in “Live” status. This is great for sites where some people don’t have access permission to the widget area but they are supposed to update the polls! Just use the poll widget, set it to use the most recent and then you are all set.
