Hey everyone,

I've recently encountered a problem. The poll function does not work. I've tried submitting a result, but I'm told that my submission was invalid. This has happened to several other people as well, and hopefully someone knows how to fix it, which would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

The Poll function hasn't worked since 2012. However the owner continues to keep the domain name paid for and the servers running, so I'm willing to do without the extra functions.

Ah, I see. Well, I'm fairly new and had never done a poll, but that makes sense.


Thanks!

Has anyone ever considered upgrading the forum to a newer version of phpBB? The current one is years old and I am quite sure in the new version everything would likely work. Not criticizing, just wondering.

The moderator can comment about the current "situation", should he wish.

I just found something quite interesting. I changed my "board style" to "prosilver" which makes everything kind of blue and silver. But, the poll works there. It might be something to consider. It does look quite a bit different, but everything is there and it seems to work better. "prosilver" is the default style for phpBB forums.

Not sure, did your change just repair the whole forum? I did not change anything on mine, but the poll suddenly started working again. Could others please try as well?

Thanks
Andreas

Andreas,

I suspect, though this is speculation, that the customized style (skin) of the forum was done for an earlier version of the phpBB software. It may no longer be compatible. I read on some of the phpBB forums that upgrading to the latest version does not support older customizations and only prosilver would be there after the upgrade. This could be an easy fix, though I don't know how easy it would be to get folks to change the style for themselves.

If it did fix it then it points to some type of file permission issue in the internals of the forum. Maybe posting a poll with the default style created something that that was missing that made it start working everywhere. I'm not a phpBB expert, just was looking for ways to figure out what might be wrong.

By the way, I really like the default style. It is very clean looking.

I created a new poll under "anachronist" and it did not work. I then created a new poll under "prosilver" and it worked fine, as long s I stayed on "prosilver". Once I switched back to "anachronist", I was not able to submit responses.
