@ronny good to hear that 👍
I was going to suggest iframely plugin if this did not work.
This NodeBB plugin will allow you to add polls to the first post of a topic.
Current version: 0.2.9
NodeBB compatibility: 1.0.0 and up.
This is still a work in progress. It's entirely possible that old polls will end up broken by new releases.
There are two ways to add a poll to a topic. The easiest and advised way is to use the poll creator. After installing you will find a new button in the composer. Clicking it will open the poll creator. In here you can change some settings and add the options for your poll. When you're done, hit Confirm and the appropriate poll markup will be added to your post.
The second way is to write the markup yourself. Its syntax is as follows:
[poll <settings>] - Poll options - Another option [/poll]
It doesn't matter where in the post you add this markup, as long as you keep it intact.
Keep in mind that you can only add a poll to the first post of a topic. You can add polls to existing topics by editing the first post.
The AdminCP page for this plugin will allow you to change the default settings and set some constraints. There are currently only a few options, but these will expand over time.
Either through the NodeBB ACP or
npm install nodebb-plugin-poll
If you're willing to help, please make any improvements you want and submit a PR.
The source can be found on Github.
For those that insist on buying me a beer: hit my up on the chat.
Bravo schamper. Every time I read your username, I think of one of the villains from 007:tomorrow never dies. He's called stamper, but the German guy pronounces it shtamper.
Will be installing in the morning and giving it a test (my polls weren't transferred from my forum conversion, so I'll start them again)
I think @schamper needs to update this for latest release. He has been working on other things and I think this may be lower down in his list?
@Punkbob this. I hope I can get to this sometime soon. However since there seems to be almost zero demand for this plugin it indeed has a lower priority.
@Punkbob probably did Haven't had the time to look into everything. Most of the plugins I made use some kind of hack to work because the functionality wasn't there yet in NodeBB. However with the fast development it has, it breaks my hacks (and sometimes actually implements the features I need ;)) Then there's just the lack of time to fix everything up.
