Solved Poll voting

Post by skidsolo on September 25th 2015, 7:03 pm

Hi Everyone. I need some help on this subject please.

I have the results of polls hidden from members until after they have voted in order of avoiding vote rigging.

However, I notice it is possible to see the poll results, by viewing the poll but without logging in.

I'm talking here before the poll closes. ie a current poll.

Is there a way to prevent this please?

Cheers,

Al.

Where in the acp (admin panel) did you set it so members can do it until they post?


This sounds like a permissions problem, try checking the permissions of the forum the polls are located in. See if guests can view/vote in polls.

Thanks for the reply Brandon.

It was some time ago now and I now don't recall. Had a good look around in there but can't find anything relating to permissions related to polls.

You will need to check the permissions for the forums that have polls. Make sure that you are in the advanced permissions mode.
