Problems with poll
« on: March 25, 2018, 10:59:00 AM »
When I choose option Allow users to change vote nothing happens and they can't change their results, what can be the reason?

you need to check your board and user permissions to see if they have the right access.

Members have permissions to vote and everything worked fine earlier. Do I need to check any specific options? Any ideas what could happen?

Each board has a permission profile. You select it when you create the board or create one then or later. That's what Illori is asking about.

Are you saying your members could change their votes until recently?

I can see permission only in the members groups, there you can choose View polls         
Vote in polls         
Post polls         
Add poll to topics
Edit polls
Lock polls
Remove polls

Is it what are you talking about?

Everything is right in the settings I mentioned before, just want to ask you what can be the reason that members can't change their vote if I let them do so.

For the fourth time, does the board in question have a permissions profile assigned to it?

Or is this a forum wide issue?

is it a profile you created or a default profile? if it is a default profile, create a new one which you put the permissions you want and make the board us it, then try to duplicate your issue.

I was talking about all members who can't change their votes if I let them do that. I remember it was possible earlier.

Going back to your original post ... just to be sure we're on the same page ... when you create the poll you're checking the box that says something like 'Alllow users to change their votes', correct?

Yes, right, I am checking the box Allow users to change their votes, sometimes I do it after the voting has been started already.
