Options The options you enter will be the choices your users can select within your poll.

Thank for your article on How to use AcePolls.
But i have a challenge on How to I allow multiple voting on one Artilce.
I have check on ... Allow multiple per user but reply that only one vote is allow in 24 hours.
How do I change this parameter, to allow users to vote as many times they want.

Thanks for the question! I took a little time to research the AcePolls extension for Joomla. It is made by a third-party and as per their notes, the free version of AcePolls does not get any support from them. You can find their page for AcePolls here. The existing free version does not provide a way for you to modify the parameters to make it so that you can allow users to vote as many times as they want. Your best bet to have the parameter modified is to purchase the paid version of the extension and then request the change from JoomAce's Support page.
Our apologies that we can't give you a direct answer, but you'll probably find the best answer with the developer of the plugin. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
