Title: Voting system
Post by: Marion Landry on September 14, 2018, 03:06:34 PM
Hi,
I am wondering if SMF has a voting options on post.
For example, in my forum I would like to have a section for "Submit your ideas". I wan users to be able to vote on the topic or ideas submitted on this forum and the most popular idea to always sit on top of the tread. Is there something that could allow me to do this on SMF?

Also, I am curious to see if the moderator of the forum could actually mark there post as "approved". This as to do with technical forum.
Let's say a user is posting a question, the community answers but internally the moderator can either "approve" the answer or classified it as "not approved" and provide more insights. This is to prevent the community to provide technical inaccuracy about our product.
Thanks

Yes of course, you have the option to set a poll with options. You have to enable it for each group.

I am not sure fully about the technical aspects of what you are trying to do but it is based on permissions you set for group or board as the case may be.

I am not using any so far, I am investigating the option before I decide if I want to use it or not to setup my user community.

Incidentally, is there an option set up two different polls, not related to each other, in the same thread?
