There are some problems with this macro which makes it unreliable or unusable depending on context:

  • One person can vote multiple times if he logs out then logs in
  • There is no way to unvote if you accidentally clicked unwanted option. Clicking option again (perhaps after short period of time only) should switch vote direction.
  • There are no mutually exclusive options: you can always vote for everything even if that doesn't make sense (for instance in {{vote(yes)}} {{vote(no)}} you can vote for both yes and no)

For mutually exclusive vote one syntax could for instance be

{{vote(vote1:yes)}} {{vote(vote1:no)}}
{{vote(vote2:yes)}} {{vote(vote2:no)} {{vote(vote2:dont-know)}}

vote1/2 is required only to specify those options are connected and voting for one should prevent a vote for another one.

Updated by André Bachmann over 9 years ago

I want to add that the {{show_vote(...)}} macro is only working on wiki pages. If I create a vote like the following one on a new issue, the mentioned show_vote macro always shows 0:

{{vote(vote1, Yes)}}
{{vote(vote2, No)}}
{{vote(vote3, Don't know)}}

Option 1: {{show_vote(vote1)}}
Option 2: {{show_vote(vote2)}}
Option 3: {{show_vote(vote3)}}

However, if I'm about to add a new comment on an issue and use the show_vote macro and then preview my new comment, it seems to work! But as soon as I click OK, it only shows 0 on all vote options.
