    Guys, is there a way I can put up a voting poll on the main page. I was looking through it and couldn't immediately find a direct way to do so. I may just be blind or having a bad moment or something if indeed it is there...

    If not, what, if any, options would I have to get one up?

    I was thinking or hoping I could get main page content forum up under Tradition Football similar to the Locker Room, Coach's Office, etc...

    Here we could have discussions on articles, maybe some article suggestions, and I could post up the forum polls and link to them from the main page....

    Let me know what you guys think.

    I was also wanting to get 'wishlist' threads going. People could get on there and put up a couple of wishlisht for whichever game they enjoy and I could take the best of them and make a TSO wishlisht article.

    I could also use it as a catalyst for people to give me more info. Like for the wishlist example, I could put out a thread saying requesting wishlishts and people could reply or pm. Or requesting writeup on defensive strategy or what have you. Then people could give me some stuff I could then put up. And I could use this venue for that. I think having the community add some of their own stuff like that would generate more interest in the articles.

    I installed a poll plugin on TSO.

    Try it and let me know if it works.

    I have an idea for forum reorganization, I'll try to incorporate your changes.

    Not quite sure how the poll thing works Shaun. I click it, and it asks me to enter an id. So I put some arbitrary # in there as the id, and it brings up some preset poll. Like putting in id #1 the poll is "How do you like my website?" Excellent, can be improved, etc..

    Not sure how to use it to make a custom poll.

    Do you have this available in the bottom left of the WP-Admin?

    Could you make the all in one SEO visible to me as well? I use that as a guide.

    I know what it is, I don't know what you mean by "I use it as a guide."

    I pull it up to copy and paste stuff over for my posts, err I was at first. I suppose now it just auto enters what I put in there last. So I guess its not a big deal.

    Google actually demotes pages if you use the same meta data. It is fine to have tradition sports online in the meta data, but pick out a few keywords from the article to use.

    Really? Ryno instructed me to use the same one, and then I would add a few myself at the end...
