Community Polls has got full makeover with a new release, introducing CP v4 beta 1. We have rewritten top to bottom to fully utilize Joomla 3 API features and the power of ACL.

This release is a full rewrite and is not backward compatible with earlier releases. An automatic migration will be initiated if you are installing on existing version of Community Polls. There are lot of new features added, removed redundant features and also updated the existing features. To summarize, 

New Features Overview

  1. Joomla categories system migration
  2. Joomla tags support
  3. Full ACL support at component/category/poll levels
  4. Revamped front-end and back-end to streamline the UI with Joomla UI
  5. Complete customization options at component/category/poll levels
  6. New WYSIWYG BBCode editor in place of existing bbcode editor
  7. Modify Answers support
  8. End of Voting Message support
  9. Be simple approach with UI, voting etc. No more blocking popups.
  10. New router and urls structure (explained below)

Removed Features Overview

  1. Multipoll Layout:  This is redundant as you can insert multiple polls on a page using Anywhere code or Random Poll module
  2. Mighty Touch support: As it is no longer developed

New URL structure with new Router:

CP v4 not just got makeover for its features but also for its core structure. In this process, we have rewritten the router file which may break your existing urls. Now the urls are smarter, beatiful and SEO friendly.

Old Url: http://yourwebsite/polls/viewpoll/1-simplepoll.html
New url: http://yourwebsite/polls/32-category/1-simplepoll.html 
you can even create menu item for a single poll which will turns the url
for example: http://yourwebsite/polls/simplepoll.html

Community Polls will automatically detect all old urls and automatically redirects to the new urls. A permanantly moved header is set so that search engines can update the new urls. There is no additional steps you need to make.

Joomla 3 only

This is a Joomla 3 only version. In an attempt to prepare for the next LTS version of Joomla, this release is developed only on Joolma 3 APIs. Since Joomla 2.5 support will end later this year, we will continue to maintain the existing CP v3 version along with this version, however the Joomla 3 specific features, like tags, will not be ported to the previous version.

Testing purpose only

This release is still in beta. Though it is fully tested for any security issues and bugs, it may stiill contain few bugs. So please use this release for testing purposes only. In case you are already using CP old versions, this is a good start for your to check how your migration will work. If you are building new websites, it is recommended to start with this release if you are okay with any small bugs.

Update (2014-03-20): Beta 2 is available now. 

Finally, we need your feedback, suggestions and bug reports so that we can go for final release as soon as possible.
