As designed  Poll Permissions for Unregistered / Unconfirmed


Active member
Hi, I have created a poll and set "Vote on polls: Allow" in
User Group Permissions: Unregistered / Unconfirmed.

But im inable to vote as a Unregistered / Unconfirmed.

Is there somthing im missing?

Thankyou ;)

Just tested it, I have group permission set yo allow, node permission for that group set to allow and yet can't vote on poll. Will try the posting angle.

Update: I changed reply permissions and no affect on poll but did allow replies.

I'll move this to bug reports as there does seem to be an issue here.

Allowing posting new threads or replies makes no difference.

In addition, it would seem the "Like posts" permission also doesn't seem to work for guests.

This is the expected behavior. You can ask in suggestions, though that would mean tracking by IP which I don't really like doing if avoidable. :)



I have created a poll. I do not want unregistered users to see the poll results but it is visible to them. As per the permission i have set, they can vote on them. But they cannot vote on the poll but see the poll result.

Any suggestion.

That group also applies to unconfirmed members, hence the group name: Unregistered / Unconfirmed

Should split it out if it's an issue tbh basically you've got a whole set of options that do sweet fa, where's the logic in that?
