Display who has voted in all polls (usergroup specific).

It will remain available for download and use, but the thread is no longer monitored.

This is a little custom hack originally written for Boofo.

At the moment, administrators can see who has voted on non-public polls, but only via a somewhat clunky UI in the ACP. This hack allows pre-determined usergroups to view who has voted in any poll, as if they were a public poll.

By default it is still administrators only - you can add other usergroups in the options - in theory you can make all polls public to everyone. If you disable the hack then all voters in non public polls will again be hidden.

The options are located at vBulletin Options > Poll and Thread Rating Options.

Just unzip the xml file and import it into vbulletin via the product manager.


History:

v1.01 : First private release.
v1.02 : Added enable/disable option.
v1.03 : First public release.
v1.04 : Fix of public message problem - see post #3 by Tralala.

Excellent work, sir! ;)

Installed.

I noticed that with this enabled, admins (and other permitted groups) see the disclaimer above all polls: "Be advised that this is a public poll: other users can see the choice(s) you selected" ... even if the poll is, in fact, private. This is a misleading warning. It would be better if there was another phrase to cover this situation. Otherwise admins have no way of knowing which polls are truly public to all, and which are private.

Other than that, great hack. Thanks.

Maybe I missed it but I didn't see that disclamier above any polls when I enabled this.

It gets displayed when you haven't yet voted in the poll. I'll fix that in the next update, probably tomorrow. :)

Sweet, you're the man! :D

I've been waiting for this on 3.5, big thanks.

This problem should now have been fixed in v1.04.

Indeed; the disclaimer on the initial vote page now only appears if it's public for everyone. Thanks! :up:

After a mod's vote has been cast, which displays the results page from there on out, there's no way for a mod to distinguish between private and public (for everyone) polls. They all appear as public, at least to a mod (or whatever usergroup's been given permission by this hack.)

Is there some way for the results of public polls to be labelled as such?

Voters: 51. You have already voted on this private poll
or
Multiple Choice Poll. Voters: 31. You have already voted on this public poll

I'm not sure if you could do that without a template edit, it depends how easy it is to edit the message - I'll have a look when I have time - I have a few bits on atm. :)

Thank you!
