  • How to show poll before first post

    It is possible to show poll before the first post in a thread? Just like in here:

  • #2
    That isnít a vBulletin site.

    Changing how polls work would require custom coding.

      Yes it is not vBulletin site but this feature looks really nice. Polls just above thread. I want in vBulletin too. It's very useful feature.

        And when vBulletin is ace forum software it should be there

          I'd oppose such a feature unless it was optional. Allowing people to vote on polls without making any effort to contribute to a discussion is pointless.

            Could be possible with a custom module.

            Forget this one (have to read more carefully) :-):
            It is possible if you check the "Make votes public" within the polloptions of the thread.

                The data of the specific poll could be fetched with the API. So it is possible to create a module/ widget or addon to show the poll above the first post.
                I write it to my list of addons I will create... but I have a lot to do before and less time!

                Even I don't really get the idea why you would like to show it above the first post :-)
                But I think it could be usefull on page 2+

                  And if we implement Poll replies (a commonly requested feature) how would things work then?

                    What if the optional text in a Poll post was not supplied by the poll creator? Then if you moved the poll question and answer choices above the first post, the first post would be empty.
