Plugin Vote

Introduced in Tiki2

This wiki plugin is a specific use of the trackers feature, specialized for voting and survey, which can be inserted into any wiki page, article, or blog. It operates in a manner similar to the Polls and Surveys feature, but with more robust features.

This plugin combines 2 tracker plugins:

  • PluginTracker - which allows each user (with the appropriate permissions) to enter their vote. ( = create a tracker item)
  • PluginTrackerStat - which displays voting results ( = statistics on the tracker).


The advantage to use the tracker is that you can :

  • unlike polls, use a variety of input fields (like country, drop down, radio...)
  • unlike polls, ask a number of questions.
  • have mandatory fields
  • unlike surveys, you can have as many vote boxes in a page as you want. (limitation: each vote must use a different tracker)
  • you can use the plugin trackerlist to have the detail - who votes what

The parameters of this plugin are the parameters of the tracker plugin and the trackerStat plugin.

Configuration

The tracker used for a vote must be configured specifically to behave like a vote system.

  • a user or an IP can vote only one time must be checked
  • the tracker must have a field of type 'IP selector' or 'User selector' with an option 1
  • if you want to have your vote or survey activated only during a certain period of time, you have to set the 2 dates ( or only one) after and before.


If there is only a field 'IP selector', a vote with the same IP replaces any previous one. If there is only a field 'user selector', a vote with the same user that a previous one replaces the vote. If the tracker has both fields, a vote with the same user or the same IP will replace the previous one.

If you give a "after" date, the vote box will display "the vote begins after" before this date
If you give a "before" date, the vote box will display "the vote ends after" before the end, and "the vote is closed since" after the date

Example

Basic syntax

{VOTE(trackerId="19" fields="73" float="right")}Thank you for your vote{VOTE}
