Hello, LiveJournal friends!

So, I built something for you... assuming you use Firefox and have a basic LiveJournal account.

LiveJournal Polls!



(This functionality already exists in LiveJournal, but it is only available on non-basic accounts.)

Here's how it works.

  1. You'll need the GreaseMonkey add-on for Firefox, which you should probably have installed anyway.

  2. Download/install the script here. (Or, you can read about it here.)

  3. Once you install it, there'll be a new button in the HTML view when you post on LiveJournal called "Add Poll." Click on it.

  4. You can now add any number of questions and any number of options for each question. Plus, you can make your options appear as either check-boxes or radio buttons.

  5. When you're done, click on "Submit."

  6. A bunch of HTML will get pasted into your post. It contains the poll you just created and the results of it.

Enjoy!

I'm not a Basic user, but I think it's nice you're providing for them. (I should have said this the first time around...)

Oh! Nifty, by the way! (smile)
