Polls

Polls are very complex. To add one, click the gear icon in the composer and click “Build poll”, here are 2 examples.

[poll type=regular results=always public=true chartType=bar]
# Single choice bar
* Yes
* No
[/poll]

Result:

Single choice bar
  • Yes
  • No

0 voters

Replace chartType with pie for this;

Single choice
  • Yes
  • No

0 voters

Multiple Choices

[poll type=multiple results=always min=1 max=4 chartType=bar]
# Multiple choice bar
* Option 1
* Option 2
* Option 3
* Option 4
* Option 5
* Option 6
* Option 7
[/poll]

Multiple choice bar
  • Option 1
  • Option 2
  • Option 3
  • Option 4
  • Option 5
  • Option 6
  • Option 7

0 voters

The same chartType behavior works here.

Syntax highlighting

The syntax highlighting is pretty bad, but it does work.

Put ` times, then the language, without the /.
