Brought to you by BirdOPrey5 and kh99

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.

That would be very different from the code for this mod.

I have chosen the option that a member can vote only once in a poll.
Can the user who has already voted and posted a reply, can again and again post replies ?

Once a user votes in the poll they can post in the thread as much as they want.

I like the idea of this but I'd rather you be able to select the thread in which you can't post without voting.
This sounds like it stops you from posting on any thread if you haven't voted in it's poll....

Most likely explanation is the settings are incorrect-

Is mod enabled?
Are you (testing it) in an immune usergroup?
Do you have it enabled in the forum you are testing it in?
Do you have allow thread starter to vote enabled? (And if so, are you the thread starter?)

If they all look right, can you give a screenshot of the settings and a link to your forum to me so I can test it.

Just tested this on 4.1.12, and it still works.

I have noticed though now vBulletin will put the error message right above the quick reply box instead of on a new page when you try to submit your response and this mod blocks it-

Therefore I suggest VB 4.1.12 users EDIT the Phrase mustvote2post in Phrase Manager- and provide a translation without the <input> code included.

Make the translation say: You must vote before you can reply to this thread.

Or whatever else you want it to say.

This will remove the unnecessary "Go Back" button that used to be part of the phrase.

I have tested both options on several forums, including a freshly installed forum and all are working as expected-

That is to say-
If "Enable in All Forums" is YES the mod works in ALL forums
If it is NO it works ONLY in the forum selected below

AND

Allow Thread Starter to Post is Working fine for allowing whoever started the thread (and posted the poll) to vote.

Please double-check your settings. If it's not working please post a screenshot of your settings.

BirdOPrey5, I too am having issues with the mod working. I have already posted the information about the issue on your forums here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like you were right. I apologize, I had to see it on someone else's forum.

There were indeed a couple bugs. I have released version 2.1 which should fix it.
