Publish your polls

We'll create a simple page that displays the last 3 active polls in twig.

Note that since every element of a poll (the entry itself, but also the answers) are fully customizable, native Craft fields it will be easy to add images or extra content to polls.

For this example, we'll set up 3 twig files,

  • /templates/latest_polls.twig will select the 3 latest polls and decide wether to display the results or the form
  • /_partials/poll_form.twig will display the form for a poll
  • /_partials/poll_result.twig will display the results for a poll

After you set up the templates with the code below, the result will look like this: (navigate to yoursiteurl/latest_polls):

Show some poll forms or results if someone has already participated
