Thank You.

Hello, good news pal..., I've set something like this

class MyPage extends Page {
...
static $has_one = array(
...
'Poll' => 'Poll'
);
...
function getCMSFields(){
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$dosPoll = DataObject::get('Poll');
$map = $dosPoll ? $dosPoll ->toDropdownMap('ID','PollTitle') : array();
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new DropdownField('PollID', 'Select a poll',$map));
return $fields;
}
...
}

and in the controller

class GuerraPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
function MyPoll() {
   Session::set('MyVar',$this->Title);
   $myvar = Session::get('MyVar');
return new ShowPoll($this, $myvar);
}

and it works automatically. The only thing that you have to do is to set the title of the poll IDENTICALLY to the title of the page.

Now I'm facing a problem (how to use the poll module, where to redirect the visitor after the vote, where to show the votes). Any info here?

hmmmmm

$myvar = Session::get('MyVar');
return new ShowPoll($this, $myvar);

I was suggesting that you use the session to pass the id of the required poll into the polls module...
So the code in the page init would be...

function init() {
parent::init();
Session::set('PollID',$this->PollID);
}

and then using that in the polls module

function __construct($controller, $name,$iPollID)
...
$poll = DataObject::get_by_id('Poll', Session::get('MyPollID'));

and then your page template would only need...

$ShowPoll;

(al untested)

It works, but now, how can I get the poll to work?. I mean, I show the poll in the page, but, when I vote, the system get me to a page that doesn't exists. How can I manage that?. I can see a discusion link option, do you know how to use it?. How can I redirect the poll to the same page when the people votes?.

Thank You!
