Okay, so this is working, but you can keep voting indefinitely on the same account. That will be another update. Also I want to make the poll results graphical-- that will be fun to do.

Rocket Man on 2013-03-22 16:48:22.000

Also I still have to make the poll results work in forum view and regular view. Not a big deal.

Rocket Man on 2013-03-22 16:52:59.000

Okay that last thing really wasn't a big deal. Literally I just had to add the word "post-poll-data" to the regular view.

I like it when things are that easy. I guess maybe I designed it that way.

Well done. But I can vote as often as I want.

Yeah, I'm going to add a feature where it keeps track of which polls you've voted in, and then just takes away the voting option (or maybe tells you you've already voted).

But for now, go nuts!

Just looking at this blog on my phone (android). It renders beautifully - is Bootstrap doing that? Or do you do it with your code?

Rocket Man on 2013-03-23 14:48:37.000

It's mostly Bootstrap, but Rockets is designed to make it easy to work with and design sites that are responsive on mobile like this. Just (start-div "span5") (stuff in here) (end-div). You can add multiple spans that add up to 12 and that will be side by side on desktop and above each other on mobile.

I'll be documenting this stuff soon. :)

I saw that about spans adding up to 12 in Bootstrap docs, yes.

I need to do some tables allowing rows to be added without refreshing a page. That surely means sweating (& swotting) some serious Javascript DOM element code but it should be little easier within these. Bootstrap span/div constructions

I've added some bar graphs for the polls.

Rocket Man on 2013-03-25 19:18:14.000

Okay, I've added a check to see if you've already voted in the poll. If you have, it tells you that you already voted and doesn't let you vote again.

xerxes on 2013-03-26 04:09:24.000

Both are working. The bar graphs come out in a grid after voting. And I was correctly prevented from voting again.

though, I voted for three, and its value jumped from 4 to 7, I think

Rocket Man on 2013-03-26 07:58:02.000

Someone might have been voting at the same time. :)

xerxes on 2013-03-27 08:45:39.000

aah. that would be it.
