Poll Thread Adding "Poll:" Prefix?

Is there any way to add a "Poll:" prefix to threads that have polls? At the moment, they look just like any other thread.

Thanks, but I was wondering if there was a way to make it automatic! Unless...

It should already be there by default for any thread with a poll.

By default, you should get a poll icon and prefix...this is what I get when I create a thread with a poll:



Do you not get something like this even on your default style?

Mm, there's not actual text prefix.

I'm wondering... what it could honestly be.

Try the default style...if the text is there, then your custom style is likely designed not to show that text.

That was actually what I'd taken a picture of. Even the default style isn't showing the text.

Maybe you have another party mod installed and you did not checked box prefix "Poll"

it seems that $vbphrase[poll_thread_prefix] word (Poll:) is missing.
in a search i made i see that mod "VSa - Thread Listing Make-Up" has this ability.
Check it, if you use it. Weird though that shows default icon.

Those are actually the only plugins I'm using. I've quickly checking through the settings, and not a single one of them seems to be responsible. I'll quickly try disabling them and seeing what happens.

Edit: Found the culprit; it seems to the category separator. I'll try and figure out away around this. Thanks!

I recommend Ozzy's separator...the one you are using has several issues, and I switched a while back.

[OzzModz] Separate Sticky Threads Collapsible (vB4) v1.5.3

edit: Perhaps I am wrong about which separator you meant...but I still recommend Ozzy's normal/sticky separator...the one you are using interferes with the inline moderation selection.

There was definitely a few kinks I'd stumbled across, but I managed to fix them all myself. Thanks again for the help, Mark. I really do appreciate it.

I don't use any plug in or product for polls or sticky threads. I just check the sticky box and it puts it up top. It also adds the poll icon and text. 4.2.3 Default forum theme.
