Polls?

Postby fable2 » Fri Sep 09, 2011 1:16 am

Don't know if this has been asked before, but is there anyway to conduct a poll in the forum? If so, I can't seem to find it.

My father's old Aunt had a lovely green Amazon Parrot that could talk, and would perch on your arm and let you feed it peanuts and bits of fruit. His cage was in her kitchen, next to her radio, and he could imitate some of the radio commercials [he was particularly fond of the jingle for one of the local furniture stores].
So, I'm very much in favor of...
Oh, wait.
You said "Poll" not "Polly"
Nevermind.

Oh, I've no problem talking about Polly, just as long as we also talk about polls. Then we can talk about polling Polly, if you'd like.

Polly, would you:

1) Like a cracker;

2) Like some wine and cheese;

3) Prefer to move to the Cayman Islands where you can keep untaxable income and become filthy rich?

Hiya, Fable2
Seriously [...yes, I know, it's a departure for me...],
There is an example of a "Poll" here:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=454
Study it, dissect it, and you can probably come up with the method [assuming Jac or Elaura don't provide you with specific instructions...]

Here's a start:

DARoot, you're a nut. :mockery:

Fable, whenever you start a new topic, on the bottom you should have three tabs: post options (may not have that), upload attachment, and poll creation. If you don't have the poll creation tab, let us know and we'll see about adjusting the permissions.

It's there. I suspect I missed it before simply because I was only looking at the top of the message for options. :uhuh:

I don't know how Jac keeps up with where all the options are; he's an admin on about fifteen different forums and each one has a different format. I can't keep track of just two that are both phpBB.

Same here Elaura. :D

I'm still trying to figure out a lot of stuff, but I'm getting there. Jac had to rescue me a while back when a click farmer showed up at GHF. :shades:

I missed this somehow. I'm glad you found it because I thought I had set the permissions properly. PHP has two types: standard access and standard access with polls. The former allows a user to start new topics, post replies, and vote in polls but does not allow them to create polls. The later is what allows that access. Anyway, any forum that you can see and post in should allow you to create polls if you start a new topic. If you can't, let me or Elaura know and we'll get it fixed. Thanks.
