Problems with polls
Hi! I posted a problem with polls on our board a while back.

http://bb.bbboy.net/support-viewthread?forum=1&thread=4589

It was never resolved. But, now I have more "data" to give you regarding starting polls.

My board is set up to be a "private" board, that is, you cannot view teh forums unless you are on our access list. So, the setting are as follows:
_______________________________________
Who can start new threads? - Members of this board, mods, and admin

Who can start polls? - Members of this board, mods, and admin


Who can reply to existing threads? - Members of this board, mods, and admin


Who can view this forum & the threads in it? - Specified users, mods and admin.
_________________________________________


A member that has been granted access to the private board can see the forum, start threads, and reply to threads. However, they cannot start polls or respond to polls. Only mods and admin can start polls or respond to polls. If a specified user tries to start or respond to a poll, they get the "You must have higher authority" message.

However if I change the forum access to:
__________________________________________
Who can view this forum & the threads in it? - Members of this board, mods, and admin.
_________________________________________

and leave the rest exactly as they are, then all of my members can start and respond to polls.

Thanks for you help.

Re: Problems with polls
I think there is something going on to do with the 'Specified Users' part of the posting restriction dianimal. Now with it set to Members of the Board, Mods & Admins members can make polls so that makes me think it was that restriction creating the trouble. Thank you for letting us know that by changing that Viewing ability restriction that it took care of the problem. :smile:

Re: Problems with polls
So, is this one to go on the "bug fix" list?

It's not really fixed for me as I still want to have a specified user list AND I want my users to be able to start and respond to polls.

But, if I know it's on the "to be fixed" list then I will wait patiently.

Hmmm... perhaps I should have posted this in the "Bug" forum?

I believe this is something we can fix in a mini-update. Thank you for reporting it dianimal. I don't know how soon it will be corrected, but it was tested with the same results you got. :smile:
