Poll module with multiple polls?

Post by pioneer3000 » Thu Mar 19, 2020 3:43 am

I'm looking for a poll manger that will allow me to add multiple polls. I've tried nearly everything in JDE, but they are either single poll only or do allow a user to vote on a second poll, once he's already voted. Any suggestions?

A number of options exist - or more a number of ways to contemplate the problem.

- It sounds like it's more a survey you're after than simple poll tool. If you're able to edit the "submitted" page for the poll, you could then link through to the next poll. If you need to show poll > result > poll2 > result etc, then a poll tool may still be what you need. Looking at https://extensions.joomla.org/category/ ... ack/polls/ you'll be more likely to find it in a paid extension, so contact the developer of some of hte leading ones to see if it's something they'll consider as a feature.

- If you don't need to show the question results, a Survey extension may work fo you https://extensions.joomla.org/category/ ... k/surveys/

- Personally, I tend to end up needing to do much more with the information I'm collecting, or want to customise the flow of the user's responses to do more things. I'd then look at Forms components like RSForms Pro (which I use extensively) or a more programmatic option like Fabrik or Chronoforms. https://extensions.joomla.org/category/ ... ack/forms/

- Some of the tools I'm about to add in to suggestions for your other problem (here: viewtopic.php?f=715&t=978804&p=3598864) might also give you some inspiration for a solution - such as Regular Labs ReReplacer (www.regularlabs.com) to switch the thank you page for the poll so that it can automatically show the next poll (though if it loads the thank you page for the poll by ajax, then you're into some uncharted waters I can't assist you with at the second).
