Solved Guests voting on polls

Post by TasV on December 9th 2011, 12:13 pm

I have a poll going at the moment here: http://www.rosetalkaustralia.com/t1548-vote-for-your-favourite-november-2011-photo-calendar-entry

The permissions are set to allow guests to vote in the categories and forums section of the ACP but I have received feedback that guests are unable to vote. All they see is the poll results. If someone can look at the link and let me know whether they are able to vote or not I would appreciate it. If they can't can someone make a suggestion about what it is I might have done wrong to exclude guests from being able to vote?

Cheers,

Simon

Yep, the guest can only see the result. Are you sure you set the permissions correct for that specific forum? Please post a screenshot.

Can you check for the specific thread by editing the first post, as to whether the poll got over after 10 days or something?

Hi!

Have you done the following:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Users & Groups Tab
3. Users options (on the left, under Users)
4. Select 'Allow guests to vote : Yes'

If you turn on the settings then it will enable guests to vote worldwide, however you can disallow guests per forum using the specific forum permissions. Smile
