New: Check multiple options in polls!

Post by *ghisler(Author) » 2003-02-16, 13:50 UTC

I just wrote my first mod for phpbb to allow multiple answers in a poll! To enable this feature, just put a $ sign as the first character for the poll question, e.g.

$Which type of plugins do you use?

I chose this method because having a checkbox for this option would have required a lot of changes to the board, and even to the database! With my solution, it's quite a simple change.

I make this a test poll so you can try out this feature yourself.

Thanks! Btw, yesterday I added some more code which also shows how many users participated in the poll in addition to the number of votes. :)

I can if you want, but in the meantime there has been an official mod released which is much better than mine - check the phpbb site! If you still want to use my mod, let me know and I will post it here.

Yes, I was referring to the multi-vote mod, and yes, it requires changes to the database! Mine does not require changes to the database, but it's not as powerful - you cannot set how many answers you want.

I have put my mod here: multiple_answers_vote.txt

Note that I'm using phpBB 2.0.4, so it may not work with other versions (but there should be no problem to adapt it).

Thanks a lot, Its working great..:-)

F.Y.I : In version 2.0.6 of phpBB this line
$template->set_filenames(array(
'pollbox' => 'viewtopic_poll_ballot.tpl')
);
appears twice in viewtopic.php, I had to replace the second instance of this line to get the MOD working.

Thx again.

Btw, is the update 2.0.4 -> 2.0.6 difficult? I didn't yet make it because the forum is working very well, and I don't want to risk to break it. I did add some security patches, though.

I'm not aware as I was runnning version 2.0.5 and the upgrade to 2.0.6 from 2.0.5 was damn simple, I managed to do it in 5 mins despite having 3 MODS.
