Support » Plugin: YOP Poll » Stopping re-votes by IP

  • Hey, just wondering (as I’ve not found the settings) if it’s possible to stop a person voting again, if it detects the same IP coming to the vote?

    I’ve tested it myself, with my own IP, and I’m able to vote twice on my poll, but I can’t seem to find an option to stop same voters. I really don’t want to get the users/voters to jump through hopes and register on my site, etc

    Just wondering if I’m overlooking something, or the feature is not available?
    Regards

    Hello

    Yes, it is possible to allow only one vote per ip address.
    You can enable this feature by editing your poll and going to Options tab and from there to Access.

    Once on the page, choose “By Ip” for “Blocking Voters”.

    I hope this helps.

    Ohhhhh, I thought that was to block people, like, lets say trolls and you knew their ip, ok, I’ll give it shot.

    If I was to ‘reset the poll’ I’m guessing that resets the IP’s too and the people could vote again? (I do the same vote once a week)

    Yes, reseting votes would allow people to vote again even if they voted previously.

    Is there a way to limit one vote per user but allow them to change their vote until the poll closes?

    @farrukh_najmi, current version does not allow voters to change their vote.
