    Has anyone else tried to use the Poll block in Moodle 2.9 yet? The setting for maxwidth in file block_poll.php in public function poll_print_results seems to be broken and all the bars get drawn as only 1 pixel wide.

    Hi AL Rachels,

    I've just uploaded a new version that has a fix for the 1px wide bug. Let me know if you run into any issues.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the quick fix Adam. Seems to be working fine now.

    I've been using for a couple of years on the "Dashboard" page as a weekly challenge question. I love it. I was wondering though if there is any way that the question text box could be an html editor so that I could enter an image with the question. I've got around this by putting an HTML block right above the poll block and referring to an image in that block but I would love to take out this step.

    Is there a way to increase the number of choices?

    Figured it out: I changed 10 to 30 in the following line in the tab_editpoll.php file.

    for ($i = 1; $i <= 30; $options[$i++] = ($i - 1)) {
    }

    Hi Adam,
    May I re ask Mario's question will there be a Moodle V3.0 version of this plugin as although it installs in from the web front end we are looking to switch to pulling all plugins in from git and that won't work for Poll.

    Cheers,

    John.

    Hi John,

    I'm not sure why pulling it in via git would be a problem for you?

    Unless you're just worried about it not explicitly saying the plugin works for 3.0 here? In which case - it does. I've done some testing and was unable to find any regressions in functionality on M3.0 for the block - so I've updated the current version to state that it also supports 3.0.
