lj-poll scale values [Mar. 24th, 2003|11:51 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |busybusy]

I've noticed that the server will reject any posting with an lj-poll that has a scale question with a from value of 0. It doesn't give a useful error message, the posting just fails with a generic server error.

After giving an incorrect answer to a support request about the web UI poll maker, which doesn't allow a value of 0 for "from" (it automatically changes it to 1 when you tab away from the box), I realized that manually changing the value when posting through the web will allow a scale from 0 to whatever. As far as I can tell, this is an inconsistancy between what's allowed when posting using the web interface and using a flat interface through a client.

Can anyone else confirm this/suggest some way to get around it? Should I just have the poll maker in the client refuse to allow a value of 0?
