Different Ways to Show the Results of Polls

Post by SLGray on May 20th 2017, 3:51 am

I believe there should be different options to show the results of a poll. Maybe as a pie graph.

I like the idea, but wouldn't a pie graph take up a lot of space at the top of the thread?

Edit;Now I'm googling Data Graphs and Poll Results Graphs instead of sleeping early before my first exam tomorrow.. Rip my life

Voted NO, it can be done by JavaScript and CSS, there are even jQuery plugins for doing on the internet.

Not really. I have seen an example on a forum hosted by Forumotion.

@SLGray, I've had a quick lookup on the method that's being used here, and it's pretty straight forward. They're using a table. Now, since it's a table (CSS), this most likely could be molded into any of graph of your liking using CSS (99% in most cases my best guess). Anyway, on WordPress they got a plug-in available for that, a graph / poll manager, even a light version of it, which enables whoever manages the board and have this plug-in installed, to control the graphs being shown for them polls the way you like it. Would be nice to see that one integrated into the ACP somehow Wink

Ah, and voted 'Agree' ofc. 'bout time to have that one changed.

Upvoted, despite the minuscule possibility of this actually being implemented (admins should be able to see what users voted what, as well).
