Hi, i want to do a survey using polls but I cant find a way to post more than one poll in the same thead. For example First poll: gender, male or female. second poll: age intervals. third poll: country of origin.

I want like the coloured percentage bars, not regular typed out questions.

Thank you.

I don't think that's an available feature... someone correct me if there's an add-on for it. But I've never seen that on vb.

Would this do the trick?

I have seen something on that site before for a different thing, but since it says 'Not Supported', I don't think they really want it on the site :)

Trueeee :') I don't know enough about vt to know if it is a problem or not!

This what someone on a VT forum said:
truthfully I have been looking for decent quiz software for my vBulletin forum since v3.8 and haven't found any worthy enough to install.

So, my determined self found a nice alternative that isn't awesome but pretty good and acceptable for now.

I use a product called wondershare quiz creator and it outputs a .swf file (flash) and then I used the AME product that would let me integrate it into a forum message.

Of course two issues exist.
1.) AME doesn't have a compatible version for vb4 yet nor have I found anything that will work with embedding flash in vb4 yet.

2.) Wondershare Quiz Creator isn't free but the advantage to the product is it allows you to import and export your quiz into excel if you want as well as creating it in Flash allows you to email the quiz to someone if you want.


I don't know enough about how VT works to understand it though!!:(





Can't the admins just increase the max number of poll options?

I'm honestly not sure; I'm not the person to be asking. :lol: In theory, though, if it were possible, I wouldn't be opposed to the idea. As long as it doesn't look like a cluttered clusterfuck in application.

On the base vBulletin, this isn't an option. That addon that you linked to, while in theory could be possible, is extremely outdated (10+ years), and doesn't even run the same vbulletin that we do. As far as my research could go, I don't think there's really anything else out there.

I will admit that even if there was a supported addon for this, I'm not totally sure how I would feel about it. It's not that I don't think it could in theory be useful, but I'm not really sure what the point of it would be, besides to view statistics or something in puberty surveys or something like that, or to do a survey like you suggested with age and country and whatnot, but that would get super repetitive, and would really only be permitted to be made once.

I don't really know if I'm making much sense, if any so if clarification is needed, please don't hesitate to ask. But tl;dr, I don't think that this is possible to do, anything else aside.

Honestly I would stick with keeping with surveys compared to having multiple polls in a single thread. In my opinion, it almost seems stupid and would make it feel just cramped with one too many things. Surveys are just fine, no need to add a small and more than likely a fairly unused feature.

[-]What I have seen done before is people putting surveys on external sites such as Google forms or survey monkey and then that could provide you with the charts you require ?[/-]
