Topic Poll issue: undefined topic_poll

I switched a forum back from accepting polls. Now, I pick up theses event logs. The following error message appears once for each thread-starter. I use the "Embed" modules. Thanks for a hint!
Language: PHP
Message:   PHP notice: Undefined index: topic_poll   PHP notice generated at /var/tmp/tpl-emerald_neighborship-list-6e5d36c254118bb7a5d3e1a525a7dfee.php-stage2:93   Back trace:   Function include called at /var/tmp/tpl-emerald_neighborship-list-6e5d36c254118bb7a5d3e1a525a7dfee.php:7 ---- Function include called at {path to Phorum}/common.php:1466 ---- Function phorum_output called at {path to Phorum}/list.php:596

korsakov, there is a very simple three step process for getting your problems solved:
  1. Identify the module causing the problem (often found in the error message or with the Event Logging module).
  2. Visit the module's forum post (often linked from the Modules page in the Admin section) and start a reply to that post.
  3. In you reply, post a detailed description of your problem, including any errors messages exactly as they are displayed.
You clearly had no problem with the first step and succeeded with the third step *this* time, but you still seem to have problem with the second step and moderators only have so much patience for moving and merging posts before the delete link starts looking pretty tempting. Please be more careful in the future.

Maurice, my apologies for going a bit off-topic on your thread.

I believe I found the problem. I checked out the different image viewers of the "Embed Images" module probably causing a conflict. After clearing the cache the issue was resolved. Even with the help of the (fantastic) Event module, sometimes it is not immediately clear where to look first.
In the past I was occasionally criticized when I posted issues under the according module thread. Of course, I want to play according the rules.
Thanks for your response!

No problem Joe, I fully subscribe your message.

Furthermore, I'd like to state that I won't accept any from korsakov's bug reports on modules, unless these can be reproduced on a clean, unmodified Phorum installation. With all the coding that I've seen, I am not confident at all that problems would not be caused by the coding skills.

Korsakov: what would help is if you'd actually include some code in your post. Line numbers in compiled template files are useless. I told you before: I am not psychic.

What is on line 93 of /var/tmp/tpl-emerald_neighborship-list-6e5d36c254118bb7a5d3e1a525a7dfee.php-stage2 ???

Did you modify your list template to get some topic poll related information in there? The module does not require changes to the list.tpl to function,

It is correct that I display poll results on the list page in order to save time for users. The problems started when I checked out the options within the "Embed Images" module and switched back a forum from accepting poll requests. It was not possible for me to make a guess which part of the code might have caused the problems. Clearing the cache resolved the problems eventually. Sorry for taking your time.

I am wondering whether there was a performance gain if the data of this module were stored in the according poll-allowing forum settings vs. the main settings. I expect a significant amount of polls (just one pre-defined type) for my Phorum. The future performance worries me when the application will be loading a huge amount of data not being relevant to most users.

Can you describe me how you think that the topic poll module is storing its data? Additionally, can you tell me why exactly that would be a performance issue?

I have no idea what you are suggesting and I don't feel like looking into it either. I have the poll module on my own site and I have no problems with it at all. Case closed.

the poll data is saved in the post, nowhere else.

The individual poll settings are stored under the main settings for each message. I only have one poll style and don't allow users to modify them. I thought I could suppress the unnecessary accumulation of redundant poll info.

I installed topic_poll-1.0.18 on Phorum v5.2.15a. I created a poll and voted successfully. But when I logged in as different user and voted, it always go to a blank screen and the vote was submitted to database base. Help please.
Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum.
