  1. Hello,

    I created a poll question and registered with the poll website however my free EduBlog does not support the poll as a widget. Instead I just have text on my side bar.

    Also, I am having osme trouble with my avatar displaying on the website and with comments.

    My blog is 8yellowmath.edublogs.org

    I am adapting the student challenge to our math classroom and have run into several hurdles with the software.

    Everything else is going well, my class is enjoying the interactive classroom, thank you.

    Mr. Z

    • G’day Mr Z,
      Because you are using a ‘free’ Edublogs blog, you will not be able to add anything with code onto your blog. That includes polls, vokis, cartoons etc. You should though be able to add an avatar. What is wrong with your avatar – have you uploaded it from your own computer after saving it as a .jpeg file? Have you resized it to 97 x 97 pixels? That is what often stops an avatar being uploaded.

      With comments, have you changed the settings so that the administrator has to approve – rather than lots of the other checkboxes? This is what I expect my students to have on their blogs for their settings – http://sormid67.edublogs.org/2010/02/23/you-are-the-proud-owner-of-a-new-blog/

      Hope these help. Glad you are adapting the challenges to mathematical ideas.

  3. Embedding polls on blogs is sometimes not straightforward. This is because most blog sites (like blogger or wordpress) do not support javascript and most poll widgets are offered in javascript. I suggest a free poll widget site : Poll Widget.org, which provides creation of polls that can be embedded on blogs. You just have to copy paste a code generated for your poll when you fill the poll form.

    Good luck with your blog! Keep it up!
