I have installed the poll widget and have created a poll with no issues.  However, I cannot get the votes to recored.  Using firfox I get the below:

Firefox says:

 $('SelectError').style.display is undefined

Error: $("SelectError").style is undefined
Source File:
Line: 219 


When I click on the link it take me to the below in the source code:



  function beginVote()
    $('SelectError').style.display = 'none';
    var clientId= 'ctl00_74299a0d5aac4b0cbf3dbb69659bbc89_AnswersRbl';   ******this is the error line

I have the css in place.  I am not sure what this means

It looks like that JavaScript code for the poll was originally written for an older version of BE.

On your page, I see about 4 JS functions for the poll -- beginVote, endVote, showResult and showPoll.  Within those functions, in various places, it has lines of code beginning like $('.....').  Those lines of code should be changed so instead of:


It is:


So basically prefix the $ with BlogEngine.

A quick count shows there's about 13 lines that need this adjustment made to it.
