  • Redirecting to wrong thread after voting a poll

    This isn't happening with every poll, but I have now see it happen twice (to multiple people, but two different polls).

    After submitting a vote on a poll, the user is redirected to a thread OTHER than the one that the poll is on. There is some problem with the redirect. I don't know if this is a DB corruption thing or a vB known issue.

    I had someone on my forum (a mod of another forum) saying that they had the same problem on theirs.

    I'm on 3.8.1 and I think they are 3.8.2, but might have been on 3.8.1 when it was happening.

    I've created a few polls recently and haven't had this issue. I'm using 3.8.2. Do you have any plugins installed? If so, they only thing I can suggest is to disable them and see if the problem persists.
    No...No...Meester vBulletin, he no work right.

      It sounds like your pollids are messed up. You need to use a program like phpmyadmin to examine your thread table. Find out the highest used pollid in the thread table. Then edit the autoincrement value on the poll table to be higher than that number. That will prevent further overlaps, but there is no easy way to fix the existing overlaps.

        Ok, I can do that. Any idea what causes it?

          Addons or major maintenance gone wrong, like a botched database restore.

            Ok, can this be right? If I sort my thread table by pollid, the highest value is 37760, but when I go to the poll table, the pollid in the polls table is only 393. The next auto-increment is showing as 394.

            Do I set the autoincrement all the way up to 37761?

                  Once you've determined the highest pollid from the table, click on the 'Operations' tab at the top of the page and there will be a new set of options appear. In the 'auto_increment' field, change this to a number higher than the highest pollid.
