Chindogu, I think this is just a CSS problem which should be easily fixable. Do you have the URL to your blog, then I can look at it. I myself don't use the plugin.

thanks

The Poll plugin is currently not actively maintained; volunteers to maintain the code are welcome. :)

[x] done. Set the rights for this directory and the file. Still I don't see the plugin in the plugin list
of the configuration page. Any hints for me?

Thanks.

Nicola, you'll need to click on the Link to insert a new plugin on the page where all plugins are listed. You must make sure you click on the link in the upper section for the sidebar plugins, not the lower section from the event plugins.

HTH,

Hi Garvin!

I thought I should do so, so I did. Several times and also I reloaded all those pages several times.

Pricisely I did click on "Hier klicken um Seitenleisten-Plugin zu installieren", then I get this list:
*** snip ***
Plugin Action
Archive Installieren

HTML Klotz Installieren

Kalender Installieren

Kategorien Installieren

Powered by Installieren

Suche Installieren

Syndication Installieren

Top Exits Installieren

Top Referrer Installieren

Verwaltung des Blog Installieren
*** snap ***

Actually I tried the lower link too but of course to no avail either ;-(

Another idea?

Greetings

Nicola

And you're sure that a file like

s9y/plugins/serendipity_plugin_pollbox/serendipity_plugin_pollbox.php

exists?

Did you try to install Spartacus (Event plugin) and fetch the plugin from the online repository?

Question and Input fields are located inside different <dif>s, with no id or class attached to the divs - so changes via CSS in Stylesheet will be difficult.

I'd think putting them inside _one_ div and/or adding a class to the div-tags should make it easier for people to style. That would have to be done in the schript. Also there is some formatting hard coded in the script (border, padding), which could be replaced by a class, so people can set padding and border acording to their styles.

Should not be to much work on the script - only I don't really know PHP ;-(

This is all solvable via CSS - the container has got a unique Class set for each plugin:

Code: Select all

.container_serendipity_plugin_pollbox .serendipitySideBarTitle {
border: 1px solid red !important;
}


The new pollbox plugin also uses a lot less embedded styles...

My fault, it's inside one div - but without a css-class.

That should be this line, as far as I understand the script:
*** snip ***
if ( !isset($_SESSION['serendipity_hasVoted']) ) {
echo '<div><input type="radio" name="serendipity_pollChoice" value="' . $i .'"/>' . ($showResults ? '' : $choice) . '</div>';
*** snap ***

So if a class is added here, like "echo '<div class="serendipity_pollChoiceStyle">' (I don't know the rules that goes with your naming classes, so don't slap me ;) one should be able to define the style via Stylesheet like for example:

#serendipity_pollChoiceStyle {border-bottom:1px solid black; }

for the ones, that want a black line below every Choice.

Also my Firefox pulls the radio buttons very wide, as width as the whole pollblock is. Don't know why, sorry.

Don't forget - I have NO PHP-knowledge, so if you try and it doesn't work don't blame me ;-)

Nicola
