Is how this works documented somewhere? Do upvoted posts keep moving to the top or is there a way to see which posts have the most upvotes?
I searched for upvote downvote 2022 and found nothing buy my own question.
@Mr_Waffle I think giving the users the options of both a GUI or simple markdown would probably be the best. To us markdown is easy and makes a lot of sense but in general Markdown is still very new and most users have very little idea how to use it.
Trying to explain to the average forum user how to make a forum poll through markdown could be a nightmare and completely not worth it
Ye my idea would be to let the GUI insert the correct markdown.
Awesome work @mr_waffle!
I do wonder what happens to a poll if the original topic is deleted?
Does everything get cleaned up correctly, or are you going to end up with ghost polls?
@San1ty Will keep that in mind.
But that would not be an issue if polls are always original topics, rather than being also included in replies (posts). The problem, is how do you limit its use to OP only?
@planner Agreed polls should always be an OP.
@San1ty Options options options, I for one would also like to allow my users to post polls depending on what category they're in. I'm unsure on how extensible the permissions system in NodeBB is, might be worth making one of the most advanced ones in existence because I've always felt they're limited.
Guys, guys, I'll finish a barebone version of polls soon, then you can all add your features and create a pull request!
yeah this reminds me of my static page plugin. "A sample plugin to show how to build a static page"
next think you know I'm getting requests to make it able to put google adwords on the sidebar etc
@schamper I love you schamper for your awesome work on all the plugins.
