New poll feature: Multiple choice poll!
Mod Version: 1.00, by Chen (Member) Chen is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2009 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.0.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 11
Released: 21 Oct 2001 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported  

I know a lot people wanted and asked for this, so here it is, just for you! (and me )

Pretty simple actually.
This adds an option to the new poll screen (screenshot 1), that lets you choose between a regular poll (like it is now), or a multiple choice poll.
If the latter is selected, instead of radio buttons there will be check boxes (screenshot 2).

I also must say that installation is rather simple.
All you need to do is edit 2 files, and 1 template.
The rest is done automatically.
This is the place to thank Bane that generously let me use his great installer!

Without further ado, here's the installer:
Installer - just upload to your admin folder and run in your browser.
(note: all installation is reversable. uninstallation can be done from the installer)
For a small add-on (not included in the installer), please see this page.

Hmm, i've downloaded the hack but there seems to be a small error. The field "multiple" from table "poll" is installed incorectly: actually is inserted as "mulitple" by your installer. So, when voting MySQL will generate an error: "multiple not in field list".
I've fixed it by setting the correct field name in MySQL administration panel.

BTW, great hack

I'm confused, does the installer do EVERYTHING for us, or is there something we're supposed to do manually. I installed it, but I get no choice to create the other poll.

New installer (can't update first post).
Thanks.

drumsy, everything is on screen. What I can automatically is already done by the installer. You will need to do other changes to two files and another template.

Cyrus, you'll likely have to do some additional hacking if you want this to appear in the front page poll.
