Ending a Poll

Post by JulieG on November 18th 2008, 7:48 pm

Last time I set a poll I ran it for a number of days, and it ended at the time of the day I had set it at, rather than at midnight which is what I had intended.

If I run an open ended poll without putting number of days to run for, when I want to finish it, if I lock the topic, will that work?

thanks

Probably, you can put the number of days in the end by editing the post. From the date the poll was posted to the date when you want it to be closed.

Hope it makes sense.

Yes Even if its not. A Admin can end it or a Mod can.

I am an administrator, how would I end the poll other than by locking the post, or as stated above by putting in the number of days? I can see the option to delete poll, but I dont want to do that, as I want to keep the results visible.

There is a option on the top right corner of the poll which says, Close this poll.

I found it, it is a little cross, and says close poll if I roll mouse over it, presumably that will still leave the poll results to view?

URFTV, if you found an old topic that answered your question, please don't bump it as it is considered flooding, please avoid it or get a warning for not stopping this.
