Im sorry, newbie question: How can I access the Vote Log results once I started the poll?

It's probably too late for this reply, but just in case someone else stumbles upon it, please read the release notes carefully.  This mod was fully tested against most releases from SMF 2.0.2-2.0.11 and I cannot reproduce any of the weird problems people have reported (and I've tried).

Some quick notes to review:
  • If you have a custom theme or another mod that changes anything around polling features, that could interfere with this mod (or any other mod for that matter).
  • The View Votes button is not always displayed.  Only some people are allowed to see who voted for what (the vote log) depending on permissions.  Nobody can see the vote log for a PRIVATE poll, (except an admin - who can always see the vote log).  Next, if it's a DISCREET poll then only the creator can see the vote log (no others can).  Finally, if it's a PUBLIC poll, everyone is allowed to see the vote log.  The button is not displayed if you don't have the right permission according to this logic (and it's protected at the database layer as well).

Is it possible to get the comments to show up as a regular post?

Hello. It is there any way to can see just who voted, not how voted a member? To be just the member name not which option he voted for ? Or to can choose between those 2 options ? Most of the time it si ok to see how someone voted, but sometimes that should be secret.
Thank you.

Hi, this mod gives me a HTTP 500 error and it's definitely caused by this mod - any idea why ?

it happens when adding a new topic or creating a poll.

EDIT: caused because of the coexistence with the "Vote polls with points" mod so i removed it and it's now fine !

I like this mod and the features it offers.
But why in the world has SMF such basic functions not implemented? That is so stupid.

Anyhow, I tried to install this mod and I need a helping hand now, because it clashes with my theme:



I clicked on the edit icon and it shows me what it could not perform:



I took a look and all the lines read #edit_poll ul.poll_options

What shall I do now to get this mod working?
Simply overwrite and ignore?

Well, for one, we disagree with this being a basic, or even a desirable function...  imo, this should never be used on any site that I am a member of... and even if it was desirable, we can not and do not implement everything that everyone wants into the core. That is the whole purpose of mods.

However, to answer your question, it's CSS, so possibly not critical. But yes, as you not, your theme uses lists instead of dl o, apply it to the list, if you must

Right, this is a good point. There was a valid use case however. I was involved with a few communities that wanted this mod because there were many cases where the members wanted to be able to conduct closed polling of various sorts that were not entirely anonymous. So everyone participating in using this feature were always aware of the fact that they were doing something that was not completely anonymous but would only be visible to those who were granted access.

Regarding the original question, the way SMF mods are created can make it difficult to ensure compatibility when other mods or themes are installed because it's just based on pattern based insertions. In such cases, you just have to roll up your sleeves and work through it, and customize as needed.

Any chance of a drop in mod of this package for 1.1.21? Looks like a great app! On my site polls MUST be anonymous, but verified. This would really help the voting process and eliminate the need for members watching the polls 24/7 in order to try to extrapolate who is actually voting. This would really help!

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.

1.1.x is really only barely supported at this point. Instead, you should be looking to upgrade asap

Hi folks. I recently wanted to install this mod on my version 2.0.15 forum, but found it errored out and would not install. Turns out it's pretty simple to fix, if you don't mind making minor changes to the mod's zip package. I now have it installed and working. It's pretty darn good.

I'd like to pass the changes on to the mod's author but from the dates on this forum, I'm not sure he's still around. Or, indeed, if the mod is still in use. Any pointers, folks? I can post the changes here if it's of value to anyone.

You cannot post a modified version of the mod.
However, you can post and share the changes you've made to make it work

I am trying to set up a small forum using SMF (2.0.15) and attempted to install this mod but on running the test got errors as attached.

Are these the same errors that you got, glassjaw?  If so, yes, I should be very interested in how you got it to work.

Many thanks.

John.

Many thanks, Shambles.

I'll work my way through that and report back.

Cheers.

Johnfromhere, yes those are the same errors. My apologies for not replying before now, I didn't see your post! I can take you through it if you're still interested

Apply what to which list?

the css list object....   

core SMF uses dl....   your theme apparently uses ul/li

So, since your theme is using non-standard layouts, you are going to have to manually apply changes -- definitely in the CSS regarding how polls are displayed and possibly in several places, even despite the success of the other code tests.
