Hello guys,

a simple question:

Within the administration it's possible to enable "voting on pools" for anonymous. In detail I added an "anonymous" group and mapped the "anonymous" user to this group.

My question or problem is even though I have enabled voting for anonymous user it's not possible.

How can I make anonymous questionaries or polls??

So how can I make a poll for anonymous user where every anynomous user can just vote one time (checked through IP address)?

Add on: I have seen in the database that also the IP address of the poll-voter will be stored. So actually it should work.

Thank you!!!

Hm, we should check it. But even for IP checking it is very flawed, as a lot of users may be behind from the same proxy.

How do you suggest it should work?

Hey Rafael,

it would be already fine if anonymous voting on polls would work. If it works with or without IP is not that important.

But I had a look on the database and the IP address is already stored. So you have just the validate the IP address instead of the user_id. It's just another query.

My problem is that I am not very fit with Java programming, so it's difficult for me doing some changes.

What I have found out too:

I have changed the file post_show.html within the template/default folder. In this file, as you know I guess, is already the html for the poll and the IF Query --> if the user is allowed to vote and so on. How ever, actually I had the anonymous user within the General group, and the general group had the rights for voting on polls. But it didn't work for anonymous user. So I deleted the IF query within this file and I had the voting possibility and the results. But now the problem was that I (anonymous user) was able to vote but the jforum did't store it.

Next step would be to change the class or file Where the poll-votings will be stored, but which file is it?

Maybe you have a solution, thank you!

Best regards,

chris

Hi Rafael,
Getting back to the initial question, is it possible to let anonymous posters vote in polls, *but not post*, in JForum?
Many thanks,
Rav

No, sorry.

You can request this feature in Jira.
