Multiple Poll Questions
« on: June 01, 2004, 01:47:23 PM »
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:
  Honda
  Ford
  Chevy
  ...

But it won't let me add another question:

What colour cars have you owned:
  Blue
  Black
  Red
  ...

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. :)

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

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

Thanks

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
etc..

Q2. Which Internet Browser Do You Use?
FireFox
etc

Q3. How do you connect to the Internet?
Broadband
etc

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.

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

I am trying with AdditionalPolls_1_2_2.zip and getting error message: The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF.

I did, I found that other thread. I got a few errors when trying to install it, so I didn't continue.  But I did ask as question about compatibility using the emulator on that other thread.  So not to double post -->  http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=548740.msg3904994#msg3904994

Let's continue the discussion in the topic you've linked to, as this topic is very old.  Locking.
