We have added some cool new features to how our polls are currently built on PollDaddy.com. There are 6 new poll styles and we have made it a lot easier for designers to create more advanced custom styles.

- 6 New Basic Styles

- Adjustable Widths
All basic polls styles are now available in wide (630px), medium (300px) and narrow (150px) widths so that the polls will fit in better with your blog posts, sidebars and profiles.
- New CSS classes for better layout
We have added new CSS classes and some new span tags around a lot of the key elements on both the poll and results view. It is much easier now to accurately place answers beside radio buttons and adjust the result bars to different styles. A good example of the new style layouts can be found in the results text for each answer. Now the answer, percentage and number of votes can be divided out into separate elements and styled individually.
- Links images hide links etc.
All links in the polls (view results, return to poll, and comments ) all have individual CSS class names attached meaning that they can be hidden or replaced with images.
