Not sure how to add this to the tutorial section.

My wife sat by my side and wrote step by step and than typed this article up

She is the LOML

Hope this will help some one.

Perhaps add in that each time you preview or edit the post, you need to re-check your option for showing the results. It always defaults back to showing them.

Thank you both for doing this. Setting up a flawless poll with pictures is the most tedious part of running a contest, especially when you end up with lots of entries.
