[quote]How to create a poll?



  1. In
    this field, put the title for the topic (The topic title is no
    necessarily the poll question. Example: Your favourite fruits).
  2. In
    this block, you must put a message which explains or introduce the poll
    (Example : There are dozens of different fruits in the world. Some of
    them are surely better than others according to your personal tastes...
    Which are your favourite friuts?)
  3. Put a title to yoru poll.
    This must be short, but explicative. The members refer often to the
    question to vote. (Example: Which are your favourite fruits?)
  4. Place
    here your different options for your poll. They must be separated by a
    line break. The default max number of choices is configurated to 10.
    This value can be modified in your admin panel: "General Like a Star @ heaven Forum Like a Star @ heaven Messages & Email Like a Star @ heaven Max number of poll options". The highest value you can place here, is 50.

    If
    the value you entered is 10, this means that you can integrate 10
    choices maximum to your polls. this value can't be exceeded, but the
    number of choices can be lower than 10.

    Here is how to separate the poll options :


  5. Indicate
    the number of days while your members can vote. If you want this value
    to be unlimited (until you close it manually), write "0" or simply
    leave this field blank.
  6. Tick one of these two checkboxes,
    according to the type of poll you want: Multiple-choice poll or
    Non-multiple-choice poll. Multiple choice allows you to choose more
    than one poll option per vote.


Multiple choice poll (Examples) :

-Your favourite fruits
-Your favourite sports
-etc.

Non-multiple choice poll (Examples) :

-Do you want a shoutbox on the forum ?
-Should the forum install a right-click disabling script ?
-etc.

----------

Here is what the members should see :

1- Here is what the members see when they haven't voted yet :



2- Here is what the members see once the first choices ticked (If Multiple choice poll : Yes is ticked)



3- Here's what the members see once they submitted their vote(s) :



*The blue bars which are displayed when we see the results can be modified in your admin panel:

Display Like a Star @ heaven Pics Management Like a Star @ heaven Advanced Mode Like a Star @ heaven Vote bar - left / Vote bar - Center / Vote bar - right

How to reset the votes back to zero?

All of this is done in four simple steps :

1- Edit your first post of the thread that contains the poll
2- Tick the checkbox "Delete the poll"
3- Click on "Send"
4- Edit your first post and add the poll again

How do I manually close a poll?

In
the top right corner of the poll (location can vary in different forum
versions), you'll find an icon with a cross. Click it to close the poll
for all members - nobody can cast a vote anymore.
