Inline post polls

Be sure to read and follow the guidelines for our forums.

Nov 4, 2021 6:48 am
Posts now support inline polls. These are intended as casual, lightweight polls - don't run an election with them.

* Only one poll is allowed in a post and people can change their answers.
* The author and GM (in a game forum) can always see the results without voting.
* You can see the option(s) you've voted for because you'll show up as a red GP icon.
* The question is in the quoted attribute, the answers are on newlines within the tag.
* If you change the poll after voting then the answers will match the positions of the original answers - so add new options to the end.
* You can also run polls where people can vote for multiple answers (multi) and/or see the results before voting (show). See below.

You can use both the multi and show options (the order doesn't matter).

If you don't want an anonymous poll then you can add the public option. This will show avatars instead of the GP logo for votes. This option can be combined with other options (like multi and show).
