Add Links to Poll Answer Options

Adding links to poll answer options is a snap—it’s a great way to provide additional information to participants before they vote or add a little fun into your polls. All you need to know is a little bit of HTML. Let’s walk through how to do it.

<a href="" title="click for a recipe">Chocolate Chip</a>
