A Poll tool for Plone based on archetypes.

Project description

1 PlonePopoll

By Ingeniweb.

1.1 About PlonePopoll

This is a Poll tool for Plone.

1.2 Requirements

  • Plone 3.0

1.3 Instalation

Add Products.PlonePopoll in your buildout.cfg eggs list.

Use the portal_quickinstaller of your Plone site.

Contributors and others can add polls.

Managers can add and configure PoPoll portlets using the new Plone 3 portlets managers.

Users of older PlonePopoll versions will notice that the (now useless) configuration panel has disappeared.

1.5 Architecture

A poll can be in one and only one of those states:

  • enabled

  • disabled

Results can be in one and only one of those states:

  • visible

  • not visible

Poll can have multiple choice activated, determining how many choice a user can do.

1.6 Note

Within Plone, it’s possible to vote for a poll only if it is enabled AND published.

Results are displayed only when the Results Visibility is set to visible.

1.7 Migration

If you migrate from an oooooold PlonePopoll version (1.x) that’s not Archetypes based, create an external method in your Plone site:

  • Id: migrate_popoll

  • Title: (whatever)

  • Module: PlonePopoll.Migration

  • Function: migrateToArchetypes

Then click the “Test” tab of this external method.

1.12 Support and feedback

Please read all the documentation that comes with this product before asking for support, unless you might get a RTFM reply ;)

Localisation issues - other than french and english - should be reported to the relevant translators (see Credits below).

Report bugs using the tracker (the Tracker link from Please provide in your bug report:

  • Your configuration (Operating system+Zope+Plone+Products/versions).

  • The full traceback if available.

  • One or more scenario that triggers the bug.

2.1 Considered future features

New types of polls may be interesting (Idea from

  • open poll lets you see results before voting

  • in a blind vote you must vote first, but can see all details

  • In private poll you see results but not how people voted

  • In a secret vote only the owner can see results and voting pattern.
