YOP Poll
[resolved] Anonymous polling feature (8 posts)

    Can YOP Poll be used to collect anonymous votes? Our site members are having elections, but they don't want anyone to know who they voted for.

    If I could block the logs from showing the username for each vote, that might do it.

    Any ideas?

    Hi fredandcharlie,

    In the poll's menu, go to Edit, then Other Options and in Vote Permisions choose "Guest Only" and save the changes.

    This way, only users who are not logged in will be able to vote.

    Best regards,
    YOP Team

    Thanks, but if the user is not logged in, I can't be sure they aren't voting more than once. I don't think cookie and ip tracking will work since some members might actually share computers. Ideally, I would be able to see who voted, but just wouldn't know who they voted for. Is this possible with YOP Poll?

    Hey,

    We are sorry but the current version of the plugin does not include this option.

    We are looking for this as well, but at a very basic level.

    I would like to have the option to have the answer value masked the 'Answer' column on the Logs screen for certain polls. Though who voted for what is still available in the raw data in the DB, I do not see anyone caring enough for it to be that big of a deal.

    Maybe an option that when set on a pull would replace the answer result with ######### in the sting before displaying the results.

    As a quick and ugly work around, I modified the following lines in admin.php

    Line 673 is now: ( '###HIDDEN###' ),

    Line 2374 is now: <?php echo ( '###HIDDEN###' ) ; ?>

    This should return all the displayed 'Answer' results as ###HIDDEN### in Logs and the Logs Export.
