What does this Plugin do?

Basically, this will disable poll results from showing from everyone :devious:

Are there any screenshots?

See my next post

kinda like something that will be used for HotM here.. lol

EDIT: would be good to add the TEXT in a <phrase> so we don't have any problem with translations..

If a poll has been selected to close after x days, is there an option to to hide the results until the poll has been closed? If not, would this be easy to do?

This is simply to hide polls - I plan to expand the functionality to perform more detailed instructions at a later date;

These will include:

- Hide poll until closing date
- Hide poll from specific usergroups
- Hide poll in specific forums

Cheers Chris, sounds like exactly what I'm after - I'll wait until the later release.

Can I make a request - I'm not sure if this plugin is the right place for this but do you think it would be possible to add the ability to put a check in to close the thread if the poll has closed.

This may be out of scope of what this plugin does but thought I'd ask

I'll consider adding it since it is to do with poll functionality

That sounds great. It's a unique idea, and with the added functionality it will be great.

I've already completed the first request - Now when the poll is closed, it will display the results and all the information previously forced into submission

My next update will be to add forum-specific and usergroup-specific controls and the ability to enable/disable all 3 new functionalities if you do not need them; I will then look into auto-closing threads after polls have closed

What can I say, you never find this service anywhere else. Thanks Chris, I'm off to install now.

Looking forward to the auto close feature This is going to be perfect for my room 101 forum

Another thought with the auto close feature, it would be great, no - it would be absolutely fantastic if a final post could be created before it was closed with a custom title and content that could be changed in the ACP somewhere.

I'm starting to feel guilty for taking up your time.

Chris - I just installed and have a problem. All of the polls in the forum have the following message regardless of if I have voted or not:

Thank you for Voting on this poll. The results will be announced shortly!

If it helps for debugging, the test poll I made was set to close in 2 days.

Update: Just changed the poll to 0 days but it stays the same so my 2 day bug theory is out the window

Another update: This only seems to not work for newly created polls

Hrm I shall look into it - I only tested on a test-board so I couldn't check it didn't work elsewhere

I'll change it to a "BETA" hack until I resolve it lol
