Multiple Poll Questions

Polls are cool, but it would be handy to be able to ask multuple questions in a single poll. It's a feature of UBB that I miss...


That's already built in to SMF... When you start a poll, you can specify how many options users can vote for.

That's fine, that'll allow me to say something like:

What cars have you owned:

But it won't let me add another question:

What colour cars have you owned:

Wich is really what I'd like...


Sorry... I misread it... So you want to have multiple polls in one topic?

Yeah, that's one way to put it... I consider it having multiple questions in one poll, but it amounts to the same thing. :)


That probably wouldn't be too hard to do.

that would be a great option i know my members would use.


I would dearly love to add this one day - but it's a massive change to make due to the way SMF handles polls. I post a lot on a UBB classic board and that's one thing I really did like - but the way SMF shows poll (at the top of a topic) is a bit impractical for a multi-question poll IMHO. It may happen one day but it will be a day much, much further in the future if it does :P
I'm only a half geek really...

Sounds good. I don't expect every request I make to get instant attention, but I'm glad they're considered. :)

Lucky me I searched (before getting flamed for double post)

I was gone post exact same request.

One Poll, multiply questions

e.g. Website Survey.

Q1. What Screen Resolution do you use?
640 x 480

Q2. Which Internet Browser Do You Use?

Q3. How do you connect to the Internet?

I just wanted to say that I would REALLY like to see a mod or upgrade so that surveys can be added. One idea that I'm going to try is to Make a separate category for the Survey and have childboards as the questions for the survey, by way of polls.  Not the best, but I'm hoping it works.

I'll throw my request into the hat too. This would be a very handy feature.

Only thing I'd like to add is an option to hide the results so only the original poster can see the results.

This would be a very handy mod.


Looking forward to this mod too. My members are itching for a survey/ multiple poll questions feature in the forum...


this mod will rock.  i too need it.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas


Has this ever been given into consideration?
I've been searching for days now and cannot find anything that would let us run a survey type of a poll on the forum.
Anybody ?


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Is there any mod for multiply polls compatible with version 2.0.4?
