Creating and enabling the polls is not a problem. The first vote is counted, but after that first vote, no one else can vote. The "Vote Now" and "View Results" buttons are not visible to anyone else. The "Total Votes" never exceed 1.

The only thing that appears to everyone after the first vote, is the information that appears if one were to click the "View Results" button.

Any suggestions?

I've deleted the other post. Multiple posts aren't necessary.

This is not default behaviour. Are you testing this out by registering as two users on your own forum?
What is your forum url ? or a link to the poll?

I am testing this out by registering as three different users: Test, John, Wiley (and of cause, myself). It doesn't matter which of the three users vote (or even myself), after the first vote, the buttons disappear and they never reappear!

The url is You must be logged in to see this link. The category is "Gerneral Discussion".
There are two poll topics:
The topic "Test" has not received a vote.
The topic "What's a good time to have it?" has received only one vote, by John.

Its this way by design in order to prevent exactly what you are trying to do. If you post a poll you don't want people to be able to skew the results by registering for multiple accounts and voting numerous times.

I voted on a few of your polls.

Thanks, Padraic!
I came to that conclusion when I logged in at work (using serveral different workstations). It appears the board looks at both the username and the IP address. Thanks again.
...and by the way, your board is awesome! ...and your response time is unbelievable, one need's only to sneeze, and you're right there with a tissue. You go dude!!
