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.
Donations Always Apprecicated but please include kh99 in any donation.

Upgraded this to version 1.5- adds new options and fixed an incorrectly worded setting.

No, I really can't imagine how I'd even start to freeze people out of everything but a single poll, sorry.

Tested and nothing, I don't get it.....
Using 4.1.0 pl2

Mod enabled, allow thread starter = yes (I am not threadstarter), immune usergroup 6 (tested with other user group), enable in all forums = yes.

Any ideas?

Feature request: If you've been playing with the poll code, maybe you can figure out a way to allow users to change their votes? I see the current "vote once and never change your mind or correct an error" system as rendering polls useless.
