XF 1.1 Poll prefix or some info that the thread includes a poll?


Searched and found no such thread before.

How do I include some kind of prefix or word that the thread includes a poll? I don't want the users to decide this themselves, I want the thread to automatically say "Poll:" before the title (could be a highlighted text or a prefix).

Is this a feature I doesn't see or do I need a mod? :)

Well-known member
@Jake Bunce Just came across this thread, what extra would I need to add into that so it would use the same display styling as a thread prefix?

Can this be added somewhere {$thread.prefix_id} with the number of my thread prefix I've created for a poll
