Allowing users to vote in categories where they are not allowed to post?

In addition to community discussion, our Discourse instance is also used to host product documentation. This documentation is published in a specific category where normal forum users dont have permissions to create new topics or replies.

We want to add a “Did you find this article useful?” Yes/No poll at the end of the each article, but I have discovered that regular users would not be able to vote on the poll without me chaning their permissions to allow posting responses too. Is there a setting somewhere I have missed that allows voting on polls with just the read permission? Thanks!


The polls require a reply user permission for the category. If you close the posts In that category then your user can vote and not be able to reply


Oh of course! Thank you do much
