Version 2.1

This mod will require users who want to post in a poll thread to actually vote in the poll before they are allowed to post.

The main code of this mod was developed by kh99 and I made it into an installable mod with options at his request.

Options include:
  • Turn mod on or off
  • Allow thread starter to reply without voting
  • Immune Usergroups - Usergroups who don't need to vote before posting.
  • Enable in All Forums - Yes/No (New in V 1.5)
  • Enable in Specific Forums Only (Updated in V 2.0)
  • Hide posts until vote (New in V 2.0)
  • Hide View Results link until vote (New in V 2.0)

Live Demo: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...Vote-Poll-Test

Testing and working on VB 3.8.7 and 4.1.12 and am sure it will work on all 3.8.x - 4.0/4.x.x. It will probably work on 3.7 and maybe earlier as well.

If a user hasn't voted they will be given a message to vote before posting, see the screen shots.

The message displayed in hidden posts is the Postbit phrase: bop5_mustvote_hidden_message
The message a user gets if they try to post before voting is the GLOBAL phrase: mustvote2post

Full instructions in .txt file in zip file.

If you used the VB4 version you must uninstall the old 1.x mod before upgrading to 2.0

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

BTW, this was originally basketmen's idea for a mod. And it's looking like he was right about it being popular.

Two questions:

1) can this be set per poll upon creation of the poll thread? Can it be set per forum? Or is it a case that it's either active or inactive across all poll threads?

I can see a use for it on specific polls on a my site, but not on every one.

2) the screen shot of AdminCP settings implies there an option to make the thread starter post an additional post before voting. Should this actually say they need to vote before making an additional posts?

1) Currently this is "all or nothing" but I do plan on adding it on a per-forum basis in the next update. Choosing it per thread would require database changes which is considerably harder to program so that won't be happening anytime soon (from me at least.)

2) You're absolutely right, I worded it backwards- but it does work as you expect- if "No" the thread starter must vote before making an additional post. I will fix this in the next update as well.

OK, updated to version 1.5 - Fixed the bad wording mentioned above and added new options to enable only in specific forums.

If you mean hide posts until someone votes- I like that idea- Check out version 2.0, just released.

You're welcome...

If "Enter the time until when the poll is open" means set a scheduled time to open the poll it is something I will look into but it is very different coding then what I have already done, I'm not sure it is possible without A LOT of coding.
