The Polls module can be used to display interactive survey forms on your site. Each poll can
display a question on which visitors can \u2018vote\u2019. This can be a valuable way to collect feedback from
your community. Polls can be configured to allow single or multiple choices and visitors can view
the \u2018results\u2019 to date.
No special measures necessary, follow the standard installation process \u2013 extract the Polls folder into the ../modules directory. Install the module through Admin -> System Module -> Modules. If you need detailed instructions on installing modules see the XOOPS Operations Manual.
Display the Polls block somewhere on your website (not strictly necessary \u2013 people can also
access them through the \u2018Polls\u2019 link in the main menu \u2013 but displaying the polls block in a
prominent location will encourage people to vote) and
Total number of votes received (people can only vote once, but if your
poll is set to allow multiple choices they can vote for several items
simultaneously, thus the total number of votes can exceed the number
of actual voters)
The date / time on which the poll will close \u2013 no further voting will be
allowed. If the poll has expired a \u2018restart this poll\u2019 link will be
displayed \u2013 this allows you to reset the expiration date and notification
options for the poll.
Select \u2018edit\u2019 to modify the poll configuration options, or \u2018delete\u2019 to
remove the poll (and voting records) from the database. The \u2018view log\u2019
function doesn\u2019t work \u2013 it was never implemented.
