I've done this twice on two sites now, you'd think I'd learn. I take the standard install, add in a NEW POLL, then delete the original poll. I should have simply updated the existing poll but nooooo. So then all I get on the home page is the title of the poll block.

I've tried to go into modules and hit UPDATE on the Poll module, and double checked the BLOCKS to be sure it's set to Visible To ALL.

I've tried moving it from side to side (ok this was a long shot but HEY!) and it just doesn't show the content.

So then I tried deleting the poll to where there are NONE and readding it. (It added it as pollid=3.) It's still a no-show as a block. If I click on POLLS in the main menu (go to it directly as a module,) it's there!

Seems to me that the Poll BLOCK expects pollid=1 or it takes its ball and goes home. Problem is, I deleted pollid=1 and now I'm hosed!

I'm just getting used to this caching system. HERE'S the DEAL!

I went to html/modules/polls/cache and found an unupdated pollsblock.inc.php! So I simply changed that file to chmod 666!

Then I went to edit the poll and changed some wording and hit UPDATE! The cache file changed and lo and behold.. the POLL BLOCK APPEARED!

(Note: Going to Admin Menu and updating the Polls MODULE did nothing. But editing the BLOCK updated the cache.)

CASE CLOSED!
