How to access

Select Components → Polls from the drop-down menu on the Back-end of your Joomla! installation.


The Poll Component allows you to create poll questions for your site. Site visitors can then respond to the poll questions. This Component allows you to place up to 12 questions, or 'options', in each poll question.

You can place a Poll on a web page using either a Poll Module (in the Modules Site - Poll) or a Poll Layout Menu Item (in the Menu Item Manager - New/Edit - Internal Link - Polls).
