Post by adryan_g78 on September 26th 2014, 3:30 pm

Hi, guys!
First of all, I'm a newbie here, at forumotion, but I must say that I found a great community and excellent services for my free forum. For that, I thank you!
Now, the question: I want to add a poll for a specific topic, where members could vote the utility of that topic. Is it possible?

Good Morning / afternoon / Evening
First of all welcome to the support forum and thank you for asking your question today,

First of all you need to make sure you have the poll's turned on in your Administration Panel.

we will use >> ACP as a short cut for Administration Panel.


Step 1
Please go to ACP >> General Tab at the top of your page.
Down the left hand side look for >> Messages and e-mails > in that part look for

  • Configuration >> in that part about half way down find
    Max number of poll options: add the number of max number you wish the members to use if you set this to 0 it will not let you add a poll to your forum.


Then SAVE Wink


Step 2
Now we need to make sure polls can be used in that forum you are going to post in Wink


ACP >> General Tab >>
Forum >> Categories and forums >> Find the forum you wish to post your poll in and click the >> Perms icon now you will see a list of Permissions right at the bottom make sure you are in Advanced Mode by clicking the word Advanced Mode Now you will see lots of other parts to tick

go down to the second page down you will see Vote and Create a poll tick the boxes you wish making sure all members can vote before saving Wink

Now your set Wink

Now when making a topic you will see the tools for making a poll at the top or bottom of the thread before posting
