I'm testing this plugin out, and when I vote or answer a survey question I receive the message, "You have successfully removed your vote". When the page reloads, the vote has been properly placed/saved.
I'd love to use this plugin, but this bug could be confusing to my users.
i see. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Usually the confirmation message is shown so shortly that i never recognized it (of course a developer is blind to its own failures).
it will be fixed with the next release and is tracked in this plugins issuetracker: https://github.com/drohne1673/confluence-survey-plugin/issues/41
Update: The issue has been resolved. The next scheduled release is planed in the next 7 days, if that is ok for you.
Update #2: The new version 2.8.1 has been released which resolves this issue.
Thanks for the details.
i know the message is displayed miliseconds before the actual page reload is done, but
What exactly is misleading? First you voted, message box correctly states that you have voted, after that the list displays your vote. I cant see any inconsistency in that
The popup display is confusing as:
1. This confirmation is redundant, and thus useless, with the display of the vote results that appears afterwards
2. It slows down the display of the whole Confluence page.
Therefore, would it be possible to remove this popup?
sure this is possible. The source code is available for anyone anyway, so even a pull request is fine. I created a improvement request https://github.com/drohne1673/confluence-survey-plugin/issues/47with the question to either toggle between displaying messages or removing them all along. I still hasitate to remove them completely as i like confirmation like "your changes have been stored". But i am fine both ways, actually.
Actually i am not using confluence myself for over 3 years now, so i dont have a decent userbase i can test it ;).
