Hi, could I as Admin, to add this funcitonality to a particular forum, already created (Introductions, Presentations) so that, from now on, anytime any new user introduce himselve, will find automatically a poll asking where they found about us in the topic THEY will create in order to introduce themselves?

Is my question is understood?, thanks

Hi Jesus,
Yes, you can edit a topic and create a new poll. Polls are created with topics they are attached to topics not to forums. So you can create polls in the topic editor and show it on the top of the topic. If the topic already exists, just edit the topic first post and find the [Create Poll] button under the content field:

Im not sure if you are understanding my question really due to my bad english Tom. Its so hard for me to make clear my point across…

Category already exist (ABOUT THIS FORUM) and it has 3 forums on it (Norms, Sugerences and Introductions)

Forum already exist (Introductions).
In said forum a new subscribed member WILL ALWAYS OPEN A NEW TOPIC (its very own topic) introducing him/her self

So, despite the forum will always be same, any new member will open a new topic within everytime
Its at this time, when the member WILL OPEN THE NEW TOPIC that I will like the poll to be there asking him where he found us. Is this possible?

You understood now?

Again, Im so sorry, I know its my fault due to my bad use of the english language. Thanks 🙂

Thanks, I see.

It’s a predetermined FORO (“Introcutions”) where each new arrival -not me as admin- will open a “New Topic” themselves in order to introduce themselves

With this in mind, I suppose that will be not way to have things prepared in advance so that when any1 starts a “new topic” on this very foro, a pre-prepared “poll” will show in said 1st topic automatically so that the new arrival can reply to “how they found out the Website Forum, correct?

Thanks

Hi Igor,
This is not a right place for support questions. This is a pre-sale questions section. For the further questions please open a new support topic in addons support forum: https://gvectors.com/forum/

Also, please note, that polls cannot be edited and the poll answers cannot be changed if the poll has been already voted one or more times. So the voted polls are not changeable and editable. In other words, first vote locks the poll to make it fair and trustable. It’s not correct to edit ongoing polls, this is out of all rules.

Please read this doc: https://gvectors.com/terms-and-conditions/#:~:text=Refunds%3A,no%20refunds%20will%20be%20given.

2) its possible for some members to have a larger vote power?

You can use the “Multiple Votes” option.

3) it possible to set time limit to polls?

Sure, the addon has a “Poll Time-out” option.

4) its possible export polls as image?

We don’t follow you well. Please try to explain in other words.

5) dislikes? for posts

wpForo doesn’t have a dislike feature. However, I’d suggest you check out the wpForo Q&A layout. Here like button has been modified to Vote Up and Vote Down buttons: More info here: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/topics-posts/like-vote-up-vote-down-is-answer/

I have a marketplace and I’m using the WPForo plugin on it. I want to buy the Forum Polls to include this polling function. However, I am in doubt if this latest version of the extension is compatible with the Dokan plugin that I use for my marktplace. I already had a problem with the previous version of the Polls 1.8.4 extension, which blocked uploading images in the Dokan Plugin.

I thought it was the plugin that controls registrations (s2member) so I was working with them to fix the issue. I put a couple hours into troubleshooting with them. Of course, that didn’t go anywhere.

Then I had someone tell me they couldn’t reset their password. I tried that functionality and confirmed it didn’t work. I noticed that the URL for where it was redirecting had a post ID in it, so I looked in the database and found it was the ID for my forum. I did some more troubleshooting and discovered it was wpForo causing the issue.

Hi Astghik,

If I may insist:

One more question on wpForo Polls add-on.

The organization I’m working for would need to be able to audit a specific poll by a BoD’s request to admin.

They would need to know if a registered forum member did vote (and when and even IP address) on that poll, but they don’t want to know the detail of member’s voting.

Is this possible?

The Site License language is a bit confusing. I have one domain name, but I do use a multisite to segment off different functions for my site. Is that one site or 16?

Hi Steve,
Thank you for your interest in wpForo addons. I’m really sorry but for subSites of a multi-site WordPress installation you should by separate licenses.

Hello!

Is it possible to create multiple polls for each post?
In my case, the addon should be used for reviewing clinics for medical students.
For example: How was the supervision (Good, average, bad or non-existing) – and another: How was the work load (Extreme, hard, average, low).
Would this demand several posts og just one?

Is it possible to create multiple polls for each post?

You can only create one poll for a one topic.

In your cease you can create a topic with question “How was the supervision?”
And with answers: “good”, “average”, “bad” or “non-existing”
All users can vote in this topic and leave a feedback as reply.
