Request: Poll Module

Request: Poll Module
June 04, 2004 06:24PM
I'd like to see a module for adding polls to topics.

I see that there are a lot of poll scripts out there already, but it would be nice if one could be integrated with Phorum, so that you could limit responses to registered members and prevent duplicate responses. (as well as associating them with a topic)

Has anyone worked on this?

That's a great idea!

What about if you use PostNuke, and you have polls on that, any way to integrate them, maybe?

Should I make it a bit more interesting to do such a mod (or even hack) ?

I would offer some US-$ to the one making a real good poll-module.

Some features I would see as required:
- vote for anonymous and registered users (selectable on poll creation)
- for anonymous voters vote-limiting using cookies
- for registered voters vote-limiting using the user-data
- integrated in the post-form, could use DOM/JS to show elements, i.e. for adding more poll-options
- using NO external tables, just phorum-tables and the internal db-functions :)

for me the ultimate poll would allow everyone to see what all the other registered voters have voted.

also the ability for registered voters to change their vote as time goes on.

would make a great consensus reaching tool.

I've posted a poll module here:


It doesn't handle anonymous voting, so I guess I won't be getting a cheque from Thomas. :-) Hope you can make use of it.
Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum.
