#3495 new enhancement

Use unique database file names for poll result storage

Currently the PollMacro stores the poll results simply in a file named after the poll question text string. This leads to clashes if the same poll question is used in different tickets or wiki pages. Therefore, changing the file name convention by using unique identifiers (e.g., ticketnumber-question.poll, wikipagename-qestion.poll) would be a nice improvement.

Why don't you use database server storage (MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc) like Trac does?

comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by Ryan J Ollos

That change should be made. I just need to find some time, or someone can provide a patch and I'll work with him/her to get it integrated.

This ticket, in one way or another, should also solve the issue of PollMacro not being thread-safe due to the file not being locked (see comment:2:ticket:10636).
