Can the display of polls be reconsidered?

  • The poll is squeezed onto the left hand side of the post and then the text for the post is to the right of it and under. Looks awful. Perhaps the poll could be at the top of the page and fill the entire width and then the main body of text underneath. What do you think??


    Look at this, it's a total mess:

    I agree with you on this particular comment about POLLS.

    When I had Woltlab Forum Software 4.x.x - there was some one, can't remember who it was - who gave me CSS Code to upload which placed

    the TEXT CONTENT FOR THE POLL (of which you show in your attachment above) BELOW the POLL QUESTION.


    Also, he gave me CSS Code (at the same time) to have the POLL fill the screen.


    Unfortunately, the ability to implement simple CSS Code (and upload it in an easy fashion that even I knew what the heck to do with the code AND

    where to go in the ACP to upload it) no longer exists with WSC 3.x.x - as the CSS Coding system was changed from what used to be in WFS 4.x.x.


    I know there are others on this Forum who disagree with me about this "CSS thing"; but I it is one of the worse changes Woltlab Designers

    did when they released the new WSC 3.0.1 Software.

  • English tutorial: Copy the code, paste it into your style and adjust the colors or other things you need to.

    That's it.

  • Thank you for your reply!

    I will try this later tonight.

  • You should remember that it is possible to have a poll in every post.

    I should have rephrased that better and said that the poll should be at the top of the post.


    As you have mentioned this though, normally, I am always for more functionality and more options, but this option seems completely unnecessary.


    A poll is a headline grabbing feature and should always be at the top of the page, in my opinion. So, I don't know why woltlab allows polls to be put in any post. Does anyone actually use this feature?

    Can you like my first post please, as it gives the developers an idea who agrees with this suggestion.

    • Official Post

    If you simply want the poll to take up the entire width of the post, thus pushing the text below it, this is all the CSS you need:

    CSS
    @include screen-sm-up {
        .pollContainer {
            float: none;
            margin-right: 0;
            max-width: none;
        }
    }

    Well I guess it is true ... given "enough time" anyone can find reason to "disagree" with someone (that's why it is phrased "opinion" I suppose).


    But to answer your comment above: Yes, I use the Poll Feature; and yes, it is (in my opinion) that it is a good thing

    Woltlab Designers allow Polls to be placed in any Post!


    If someone doesn't want to use the poll feature (choice), they of course can always ignore it.

        }
    }

    In answer to Alexander Ebert:

    I used (uploaded) the CSS Code Sonnenspeer mentioned in Post # 3. It works fine. See attachment.


    However, while I have YOUR attention (and perhaps Sonnenspeer as well) can either of you give me the CSS Code for changing and modifying

    Font Color of TEXT for Categories and Forums; particularly I am interested in modifying certain, particular WORDS within the descriptive field

    of the Categories and/or Forums which I have on my forum.


    You may have also read my other "entry" on this same issue in forum "suggestions" for future forum software changes.

        }
    }

    I have just done my first CSSing!:):)


    That's exactly what I wanted and it was easy to do, thank you.


    Alexander, could you consider making that the default look for the polls?


    thanks

  • Bummer, I forgot about the part that polls are a feature of the Core framework, not the Forums app itself. I will check this out, thank you!
