Dropdown menu for poll

Is it possble to use a dropdown menu for poll voting instead of radio buttons? I want it because when there are too many options to vote for, the block occupies too much space. Thank you!

Hopefully someone will find it useful Wink The below changes apply to GL 1.4.0, Professional theme.
In order to get a dropdown list for polls you need to modify two templates:

pollanswer.thtml
Text Formatted Code
<option value="{answer_id}">{answer_text}</option>
 


and
pollblock.thtml
Text Formatted Code
<b>{poll_question}</b>
<form action="{poll_vote_url}" name="Vote" method="POST">
  <input type="hidden" name="qid" value="{poll_id}">
    <select name="aid" size="1">
  {poll_answers}
</select>
  <input type="submit" value="{lang_vote}">
  <a href="{poll_results_url}">{lang_results}</a>
</form>
<span class="block-vote">{num_votes} {lang_votes}{poll_comments}</span><br>
