Democracy 2 (19 posts)

    I tried adding the latest Democracy plugin to my blog

    Democracy
    http://blog.jalenack.com/archives/democracy/

    My Site
    http://www.japannewbie.com/japanese_ads/

    And while the installation seemed to go OK, the text describing the election options for the poll show up blank. However when "viewing results", one can see that all the selection choices are there as they should be.

    Has anyone ever seen this before?

    You can see what I'm talking about with the demo poll on my site now.

    Thanks for any help as always!

    - Harvey

    Contact the plugin author maybe and see if he or she has any ideas? You may want to mention which version of WP that you're using.

    The first question I have, is anybody not experiencing this issue? And if not, then what is the version of WP and the theme that you're using?

    I'm wondering what impact, if any, particular themes may have on this issue, which is what drew me to this thread; i.e., I've just installed Democracy 2.0.1 - which went swimmingly, btw - and nothing shows up for items to vote on, but those items are revealed when viewing the results.

    I'm running WP 2.0.2 with the theme WP-Andreas01 1.5 by Andreas Viklund.

    I have Democracy 2.0.1 running on WordPress 2.0.7
    No problems.

    What poll page?

    I created an empty static page and placed the democracy latest poll tag there. It displays the latest poll very well (or the archives if I wish). I also installed the poll widget in the sidebar.

    Check your css.

    LostInNetwork,

    Thank you for your tests and for posting the results.

    The theme I'm using doesn't offer the widget, so I couldn't test that - although I'm tempted to change themes just to try it - and the use of an empty static page displayed the poll very well just as you've reported.

    What theme are you using?

    Follow up - Using the theme WordPress Default 1.5 by Michael Heilemann, the poll displays properly in the sidebar, which suggests that a certain theme itself may somehow be the culprit.

    I'm using Chameleon
    http://webgazette.co.uk/web-design/wordpress-themes/chameleon/

    I have ONLY used Democracy 2 on a static page or as a widget.

    Have you looked at the page source? Do you see the div class='democracy'and the list below that?

    Yes. The information is all there in source view, it's just not being parsed properly.

    What rules does your themes CSS apply on < label > ?
    And on < LI > and < UL > and < FORM > ?

    From the style.css:

    /* Sidebars */
    #leftside{clear:left; float:left; line-height:1.4em; margin:0 0 5px; padding:0; width:140px;}
    #extras{float:right; line-height:1.4em; margin:0 0 5px; padding:0; width:140px;}
    #leftside p, #leftside ul, #leftside div.textwidget, #extras p, #extras ul, #extras div.textwidget{font-size:0.9em; margin:0 0 20px;}
    #leftside li, #extras li{line-height:1.2em; list-style:none; margin:0 0 6px;}
    #leftside ul ul, #extras ul ul{margin:6px 0 0 10px;}
    #leftside ul ul li, #extras ul ul li{margin:0 0 4px;}
    #leftside ul ul li a, #extras ul ul li a{font-weight:normal;}
    #leftside ul.linklist, #extras ul.linklist{font-size:1em;}
    #leftside ul.linklist ul, #extras ul.linklist ul{margin:0 0 20px;}
    #leftside ul.linklist ul li a, #extras ul.linklist ul li a{font-weight:bold;}
    #leftside h2, #leftside ul.linklist li h2, #leftside h3, #extras h2, #extras ul.linklist li h2, #extras h3, table#wp-calendar caption{background-color:inherit; color:#505050; font-size:1.3em; font-weight:normal; text-align:left; margin:0 0 6px;}
    #leftside label, #extras label{display:none;}

    Need some help here please.
    I am not technically savvy. I have tried for the last 2 days to install a voting plug in on my site. My site is:

    http://battlegroundearth.wordpress.com

    I want to install voting capabilities right under the graphic pic of eash 'vs' tournament.

    Example, in 'Bruce Lee vs Jet Li' I want the vote capabilities to go underneath the horizontal graphic and before the words.
    Any help would be greatfully appreciated. Thank you kindly in advance.

    P.S. Isnt there just some code or something that I can just cut and paste there? I dont know. Thanks again.

    Well... #leftside label, #extras label{display:none;}

    So, if your Democracy 2 widget is located in the #leftside part of your two column (?) sidebar, then it has: label {display:none}. The same applies to labels in the #extras. Look at the source code to see what parts of code (what divs) these affect.

    Maybe you should add:
    #leftside .democracy label{display:inline;}
    and allow (just) poll labels to be displayed on #leftside?

    The democracy style.css actually contains a:
    .democracy label {
    float: none;
    display: inline;
    }

    I don't know which one comes first, ".democracy label" or "#leftside label". Maybe someone a bit more experienced with CSS can say something about presedence, but I guess that making the Democracys css more accurate (by adding #leftside or by adding the important-tag) might help.

    ... or maybe you should start by just removing the entire display:none row from your themes css and see what happens.

    LostInNetwork, commenting out the display:none appears to have fixed the original issue - now to look for downstream effects. Thanks.

    kbellis, did this resolve your issue? If so I'm interested in giving it a try myself! I still have been going without Democracy.
