    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.

    @Dinis Medeiros - Thanks for the report, looks like that was a incompatibility with MySQL. You'll want to update to the hotfix I just released as v3.1.0.3.

    Hello,

    I recently tried out this block and was wondering on two features:
    1. Is there a way to extract votes as a report?
    2. Is there a way to allow more votes for the same user (2 out of 4 given choices)?

    Thank you for your reply

    Can you create a short answer polls where answers will be shown to other students with this plugin?

    Is it possible to add graphics/videos for polling not just text-based?
