How to add two or more questions and edit them in your polls

The ‘Poll‘ is undeniably the most popular type of posts here in Virily these days. Members do love to create polls for various reasons. Perhaps one obvious reason is you get the most Viril points when you post a Poll. It has the same Viril points as Quiz, Versus and ‘Hot or Not’.

However, in recent months, a number of problems surfaced in Virily. One of those problems is adding two or more questions to a poll. Based on my experience lately, when I add a second question, it disappears after I click add. When I first encountered this problem, I kept on adding the same question thinking that the question was somehow lost. As a result, the poll was published with duplicate questions.

To complicate matters further,  we cannot edit our drafts. Thus we cannot edit the question.

THE SOLUTION

The good news is, I found a solution to this problem. It’s rather a workaround for this problem though. But it works.

As you can see on the screenshot, the first two questions are the same. But I was able to edit the first question.

Here are the steps.

  1. When you create the poll, don’t type the content first. Don’t even type the title. Add the questions first. Don’t worry if you see only one or two questions. Just keep on adding the questions.
  2. After adding the questions, RELOAD the page. Don’t save the draft!  You will be surprised to see all the questions that you entered. (I guess the surprise is gone now.)
  3. You can now enter the title and the content of your poll and edit the questions.

I hope this helps.

    • There is always more than one solution to any problem. I had maybe a couple of experiences that I lost my content after I accidentally reloaded the page. But the image and the questions were there. I think the image might still appear even you decide to create a new type of post. As long as the previous one was not saved or submitted.

      Maybe it’s because the image and the questions are handled differently by the system compared to the text box…

  1. Your workaround is effective as I have been doing that since last year whenever I experienced problems with adding poll questions.

    Your method also works on quizzes. Refresh or reload multiple times until both the choices or answers are shown under each question.
