Posting Required Before Poll Voting
Mod Version: 1.00, by g-force2k2 (Member) g-force2k2 is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2008 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.0.0 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 8
Released: 10 Jan 2004 Last Update: Never Downloads: 14
Not Supported  

First vb3 hack and it took me long enough. Although the modification isn't very large I think it is quite useful.

What it does?
Basically it requires users to post their reasons for their poll vote before they're allowed to actually vote on the poll.
This can be used to get more feedback from polls than just the ordinary check how many votes their were.

Tested and Installed On vb3 RC 1

This hack comes packed with a complete installer, uninstaller, completely vbphrased, uses adminhelp feature, and bitwise permissions. Open the zip and upload the install_postb4vote.php to the admincp directory and run the installer.

Please remember to respect my work, and I appreciate that if you use this hack to click install. Comments, suggestions, and concerns are all welcomed. Guess its back to more vb3 hacking.

See attachments below for screenshots.

Cheers,

This is an excellent idea. But is it possible to have this working only on polls the admin selects to use the extra function?

I could attach one, but the hack requires the installer to perform a language update that is required to be done. I can make one with the queries and file mods though if you want.

You can use forum permissions to do it per forum, but it is possible to have it as a poll option, which I can do.

Boofo you need to run step 4 to update the vb3 language but other then that no.

Note that if you installed this hack please download the new zip and upload the new install_postb4vote.php to the admincp directory and run step 4 to updated the vb3 language properly.

Cheers,
g-force2k2

g-force2k2,
This may sound stupid, but is this hack available for any version 2.x.x ?
I have been looking all over for something like this, but with no luck.
We have not upgraded to VB3 and really had not planned to do so until its been out there for awhile.
Any help you could give would be very much appreciated.

It doesn't sound stupid, actually sounds like an idea created for vb3 is needed for those that still run on vb2 for whatever reasons they may have. If you're interested pm me and I'll be more than happy to send you the vb2 port.

Cheers,
g-force2k2

If only I'd have read this before I started installing the mod.. I've just spent the last hour going through the database checking that the queries were run successfully because the settings text for this mod were missing in the admincp.

After giving up, I'd taken a screenshot ready for posting but I read the thread in case this had been reported before and this solved the problem.. Please update the text file so that this isn't repeated.. My hair hurts from pulling it out..
