"Limits" tab

FieldDescription
Not to vote twice This parameters allows for prohibiting users to vote twice.
  • <No limitations> - votes are not tracked; each user can vote the unlimited number of times.
  • In one session - a user cannot vote twice in the current session (until a browser is re-started, or a session expires).
  • In one session, or with one cookie at the moment of voting, each voter is given a unique ID recorded in the user's cookie; this option doesn't allow users to vote twice in one session, or with one ID recorded in the cookie.
  • In one session, or with one cookie, or with one IP address this option doesn't allow users to vote twice in one session, or with one ID, or with one IP-address (please, note that if the user is connected to the Internet via a modem (dial-up connection), he'll be given a new IP address each time an Internet connection is established).
Not to vote twice with one IP-address If your previous choice was not to vote twice in one session, or with one cookie, or with one IP address, note that users in the local area network of the organization usually have only one external IP address. In other words, if one user in this LAN has already voted, no other user in this LAN will be able to vote. The solution to this problem can be as follows: set the time interval within which the vote module will not allow voting twice from the same IP address.

Event1 The ID of the event type - event1.
