The Meditating Coffee Talk… – When the Poll Answers Won’t Show Up and Double and Triple Questions and Answers…

Recently I published an article on How to “Save” Drafts, Make Custom Polls, Some New Issues and Will the Edit Button Ever Be Returned…??? :/ where I explained the whole process of making custom Polls which means loading all the questions and editing the Poll answers the way we want them to be…

Unfortunately, some users informed me that the solution didn’t work for them because not all the answers wanted to show up despite the constant Reloading of the page…!

But!… Since this happened once to me later too, I tried to find the solution for it and that is something I actually noticed as a solution for making custom Polls long ago but I wasn’t sure about it and thought it wasn’t actually working the way I thought so I haven’t shared it…

The key to being able to load and then edit all the answers in Polls is time. When it happened to me I have added only one question and only the first answer (“Yes”) appeared while the other one (“No”) didn’t want to appear despite the thing I Reloaded the page several times… Since I didn’t actually finish the text I was writing I went back to that and Reloaded the page just a little later again and the other answer appeared!

That is the thing I thought was crucial when adding questions and custom answers too but it looked like it wasn’t working all the time or maybe I wasn’t patient enough to wait enough… When you are adding questions and they are not visible you can solve that by just one Reload of the page (or you can try adding them with a certain time gap between them) but when it comes to the answers sometimes they won’t show… Sometimes they won’t show even though you wait because of the order of adding the questions, Reloading and then especially of changing their places too so you have to experiment a little and find the way it works for you…

When it comes to the double and triple questions, I see they appear when you, for example, add a new question and then change its place before Reloading the page – it’s like the system remembers and loads both places where the question was added to…

Also, when you edit a question (several times) without Reloading the page in the meantime, it may happen that all the edited variants appear as separate questions like it happened in my previous post, The Coffee Talk… – Be and Let Others Be!!!….., as it’s like the system remembers and loads them all while editing so in order to avoid this happening you can Reload the page several times to check what will appear and edit it if there is the need for that…

Double “Yes” and “No” answers will appear if you don’t load the already existing “Yes” and “No” answers and add them yourself instead, and if Reloading and waiting doesn’t help you can also Delete the question and add it again and, of course, Reload the page until the answers appear again and they might both appear at the same time if you wait a little before the Reloading…!

There is also one thing…! When you are editing the “Yes” and “No” answers changing them into custom answers they will turn into “Yes” and “No” again after Reloading the page so the best way to do it is either to Delete those answers first and add the custom ones then, or to edit them right before Submitting/Publishing the article and they should appear the way you edited them then…

  1. I tried your advice and most of all it works … if it doesn’t work I don’t try and fix it … I don’t have the patience and time to deal with it …. like the outages I post so … I don’t even get chopped
     

  2. That is exactly the problem. Most of the time I add polls and 2 questions and they come out right and then other times one question is missing the No answer. I will try adding the answers myself and see how that works.
