Joomla! Extensions Directory




The component jVoteSystem allows visitors to participate in surveys on your site. You can distribute as many votes as are available to you, thus you can emphasize on a certain answer. When set in component preferences, users can also create their own answers and help e.g. with the feature development. This program works with AJAX, meaning you don't have to reload the page, and is therefore more user friendly. In addition, administrators can manage the site in the frontend and users can remove their own posts. Also, the IP addresses and cookies are stored, which makes multiple voting difficult without permission. With the additional plugin (included in the package) you can also insert the poll into your posts. Language packs for German and English are included. Since the version 1.01, users can write comments on answers and the administrators can insert polls with a editor button. Ultimately, a very useful survey component with a user friendly, simple design.

Easy instalation, response options, survey expandable by user,without instalation problems, I use this extension for our social club.I'm glad to have found it.

Since the loss of PollXT, a superb polling extension for J1.5, the need for a flexible poll for J2.5 - 3 was lingering. Even started the process of updating PollXT but could not dedicate the time.

After much tests with JVote free version, it was so impressive and satisfactory that it is now used by the poll dedicated site at The nominal price is certainly affordable by anyone serious about a business website.

- Very flexible template system that allows different styling per poll

- Very good reporting system

- Great option settings that gives total control on display

- Each poll can have individual option settings

- Total control over BB Codes to create your own or remove existing

A few minor Cons

- Does not conform to Joomla global time config

- Styled with font families. Extensions should adapt the template's font family

An overall great tool!

Think Twice

Posted on 12 May 2014

I bought this extension but come to find out it installs the Joomess - Library Plugin which installs a cache on the frontend and backend. This broke a lot of my site so I was not able to use it. BE WARNED if you try to uninstall this extension it will break your administration section completely.

This is great when it works - neat display compared to others I looked at. Easy to tweak colours and even support for linking to social media.


Be warned if anything goes amiss you are in trouble! It worked on my test site but when I put it on the live site it wouldn't function - worse still on removing it the entire website was broken. So do heed the warning that the developer has abandoned this before you use it.

Rich on features

Posted on 14 February 2014

I found lots of options that are well categorised and can be set on general and poll level.

Allow certain backend users create Polls in certain categories.

Show results to voter in clean bar/pie graphics. Restrict number of votes per voter.

Module is designed to fit neetly in column (small) as well as wider columns like content area.

Well done!

Very pleased!

Needs work

It needs work but it does offer exactly what it says it does. For minor polls it is very good.
