I'm using this module with 5.1.20 version and I have exactly same problem (clicking on new answer returns to message, not appearing the poll...). I checked for the fix you suggest but I think the version of the module I'm using it's already fixed.

Any idea?

Thanks!

So you are really using Phorum 5.1.23 and poll module 1.0.7? That is the combination that you should use, because these are compatible. Other combinations might not work because of the internal changes.

Wow, this module has really been improved since when I first ran it on Phorum 3.x!

Has anybody experienced the following problem?
Once a poll is created, it correctly renders in my message body and allows people to vote, but a new message appears below it, with empty "array" options, as if it is trying to render again, but does not have the correct template files.

I am running latest versions of both the module and Phorum.


UDDATE: Oops, scrap everything I've said! I was *still* running the old version of the mod that didn't work - I didn't notice as the name had changed <blush!>

Thanks,

This module does not have anythting to do with other modules. This module is a full rewrite (or "write" as I never wrote a poll module before) and not based on other code. I'd really love to see how you would run this on Phorum 3 ;-)

You were right, I was using 5.1.20 and I didn't notice that the only version that I should use was .23, I'm sorry about that, I usually take care about this kind of things, I think I was confused by the readme of the other poll module

Thanks!

No problem. I'm simply really happy that it's not some weird bug that caused the problems for you ;-)

I realise that now - but if you look at my edited post, you'll see I thought it was an update of an older module :-)

I especially like the template previews in the settings by the way - very cool.

graphic design question

I implemented the module in one of my websites.
I would like to remove the line that appears when showing the results (before or after the message body). I tried to track in the code where is that printed but couldn't find it.

Where is this separator line coded so I can remove it?

Thanks!

It's in the module script topic_poll.php. This code is not in the templates. For a next version, I might incorporate this in a template. For the current release, you'll have to hack topic_poll.php. Find the function function phorum_mod_topic_poll_format(). In that function you will find the code for the <hr> separator.

yeah you are right, I did a search for <hr> tag and it appears as <hr size="0"/>, that's why I couldn't find it.

little suggestion: possibility of changing the graphical tag for a text tag, something like [poll] message body. I already hacked it myself but maybe its useful for more people.

thanks!
