Voting in a Confluence Answers

Hi,

We are experimenting around with "Questions" for Confluence, and would like to be able to create a question that consists of a vote with 3 options.. Is that possible somehow?

I get to insert the vote macro, but when trying to vote Questions shows a "There was a problem casting a vote. Returned status: error, error: Internal Server Error"

When editing the property of the vote macro, it shows error:

"There is no metadata configured for this macro which means no configuration screen can be presented here.

No one can possibly know what votemacro you're referring to, since you've quite clearly indicated it's a custom User Macro. Also, I am not positive your two errors are connected in any way, shape, or form. Confluence complains about meta data if you don't define any, in a custom user macro. If you haven't completed the requirements, it will complain. Now, your server error is different - com.atlassian.confluence.content.CustomContentEntityObject cannot be cast to com.atlassian.confluence.pages.AbstractPage The code is bad. It's not doing something that's possible. Perhaps this works on Pages but not Questions, is that what's wrong?

You are right, sorry about that. I clarified the question a bit just now, and showed how it can be reproduced. So it's not a custom user macro. I opened a case with atlassian who claimed that they did not manage to reproduce the error i see, making me assume it should work with the current version i use.

I am under the impression that confluence questions doesn't support all macros for some reason or another. A quick search here found a lot of relevant discussion here on this Answer: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/262516/problemserror-with-macro-as-part-of-an-answer-in-confluence-questions The next step is to find a hug in the issue tracker that covers this. ;)
