Can you Vizu? Apparently, not me.

01Oct08

So, I was looking at The Viral Garden for some ideas, and on the sidebar I noticed a really cool interactive poll.  It looked really cool and I thought, “I wanna do that.  Maybe more people will come and visit and give me their ideas.”  So, I found out that Vizu and Poll Daddy Poll both let you instantly design your own polls that you then can pop on your blog.

First, I used Vizu and loved how it looked.  But, I must have tried 200 times and 2 hours later (it’s 1 a.m. now) and nothing.  Every time I exported it, all it did was show the words Opinion Polls and Market Research — without a poll. 

I switched to Poll Daddy Poll, which has partnered with WordPress, and it worked, but the look of the poll was pretty lame.  So, here I have this great poll but you can’t see it. 

I figured out the problem, just not the solution.  Every time I copied the whole long HTML code into the text box, half of the code disappeared after I saved it.  Incomplete code, no poll.

So, thanks to Vizu, I’m exhausted and sad.   If I had paid anything for their service, I’d make them give it to me for free.  Anyone else try using Vizu and WordPress together?  Any tips?

    i believe the Vizu problem is around flash vs. javascript. wordpress.com does not present flash files (why you only saw the links). Did you try the poll in sidebar and post?
