    some members not able to vote in polls

    they get this error - You may not vote on this poll

    i can find no reason in the usergroup permissions to block their ability to vote as that they have - Can Vote on Polls in their poll permissions set to yes.

    Check the overall Usergroup permissions:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup

    And the Forum permissions for each forum and Usergroup:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

    Main Usergroup Permissions take precedence unless you override them with specific Forum/Usergroup permissions.

    When multiple usergroups are involved, a 'Yes' permission always overides a 'No' permission if 'Allow Users to have Member Groups ' is set to 'Yes' for the Primary group. Same goes for a larger quota.

      hey dirtycow... i have the same problem... did you find a solution to this?

      I cant figure it out either... i checked all the permission also and all are correct!!

      I also had one of the members log in with an account i know can vote on polls and he could not vote... which makes me think it must be a browser setting issue???

      Hopefully someone will know the answer...

        Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions
        That solved my problem... it was only one forum that had specific voting permissions disabled...

        good luck
