Solved: 1 Month, 2 Weeks, 5 Days ago
Hi.. I am creating a small plugin that basically list polls in descending order in terms of the number of votes.

In my plugin, I have:

$plugins->add_hook('showthread_end', 'poll_sort');

and then the function, "poll_sort":

function poll_sort()
{
	global $mybb, $db, $lang, $theme, $templates, $plugins, $parser, $cache, $poll, $option, $polloptions, $totpercent;
	$lang->load("showthread");

	$thread = get_thread($poll['tid']);
	$forum = get_forum($thread['fid']);
	$forumpermissions = forum_permissions($forum['fid']);

	/* Basically copied and pasted from showthread.php but some parts are modified */

	$poll['timeout'] = $poll['timeout']*60*60*24;
	$expiretime = $poll['dateline'] + $poll['timeout'];
	$now = TIME_NOW;

	// If the poll or the thread is closed or if the poll is expired, show the results.
	if($poll['closed'] == 1 || $thread['closed'] == 1 || ($expiretime < $now && $poll['timeout'] > 0) || $forumpermissions['canvotepolls'] != 1)
	{
		$showresults = 1;
	}

	if($forumpermissions['canvotepolls'] != 1)
	{
		$nopermission = 1;
	}

	// Check if the user has voted before...
	if($mybb->user['uid'])
	{
		$user_check = "uid='{$mybb->user['uid']}'";
	}
	else
	{
		$user_check = "uid='0' AND ipaddress=".$db->escape_binary($session->packedip);
	}

	$query = $db->simple_select("pollvotes", "*", "{$user_check} AND pid='".$poll['pid']."'");
	while($votecheck = $db->fetch_array($query))
	{
		$alreadyvoted = 1;
		$votedfor[$votecheck['voteoption']] = 1;
	}

	$optionsarray = explode("||~|~||", $poll['options']);
	$votesarray = explode("||~|~||", $poll['votes']);

	$oldOrder = $votesarray;

	arsort($votesarray);
	$sortedOrder = $votesarray;
	$correctOrders = [];

	foreach($votesarray as $key => $value) {
		array_push($correctOrders, $key);
	};

	$count = 0;
	foreach($votesarray as $key => $value) {
		$newPoll[$count] = $optionsarray[$key];
		$count++;
	};
	$optionsarray = $newPoll;

	$count = 0;
	foreach($votesarray as $key => $value) {
		$newVotesArray[$count] = $value;
		$count++;
	};

	$votesarray = $newVotesArray;

	$poll['question'] = htmlspecialchars_uni($poll['question']);
	$polloptions = '';
	$totalvotes = 0;
	$poll['totvotes'] = 0;

	for($i = 1; $i <= $poll['numoptions']; ++$i)
	{
		$poll['totvotes'] = $poll['totvotes'] + $votesarray[$i-1];
	}

	$fillingOrder = 0;

	// Loop through the poll options.
	for($i = 1; $i <= $poll['numoptions']; ++$i)
	{
		// Set up the parser options.
		$parser_options = array(
			"allow_html" => $forum['allowhtml'],
			"allow_mycode" => $forum['allowmycode'],
			"allow_smilies" => $forum['allowsmilies'],
			"allow_imgcode" => $forum['allowimgcode'],
			"allow_videocode" => $forum['allowvideocode'],
			"filter_badwords" => 1
		);

		if($mybb->user['showimages'] != 1 && $mybb->user['uid'] != 0 || $mybb->settings['guestimages'] != 1 && $mybb->user['uid'] == 0)
		{
			$parser_options['allow_imgcode'] = 0;

		{
			$parser_options['allow_videocode'] = 0;
		}

		$option = $parser->parse_message($optionsarray[$i-1], $parser_options);
		
		preg_match('/\[uid=([0-9]*)]/', $option, $matches);
		if(strlen($matches[1] > 0)) {
			$country_cache = $cache->read("countries");
			$poll_referred_uid = $matches[1];

		}

		$number = $correctOrders[$fillingOrder] + 1;
		$fillingOrder++;

		// Mark the option the user voted for.
		if(!empty($votedfor[$number]))
		{
			$optionbg = "trow2";
			$votestar = "*";
		}
		else
		{
			$optionbg = "trow1";
			$votestar = "";
		}

		// If the user already voted or if the results need to be shown, do so; else show voting screen.
		if(isset($alreadyvoted) || isset($showresults))
		{
			if((int)$votes == "0")
			{
				$percent = "0";
			}
			else
			{
				$percent = number_format($votes / $poll['totvotes'] * 100, 2);
			}
			$imagewidth = round($percent);
			eval("\$polloptions .= \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll_resultbit")."\";");
		}
		else
		{
			if($poll['multiple'] == 1)
			{
				eval("\$polloptions .= \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll_option_multiple")."\";");
			}
			else
			{
				eval("\$polloptions .= \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll_option")."\";");
			}
		}
	}

	// If there are any votes at all, all votes together will be 100%; if there are no votes, all votes together will be 0%.
	if($poll['totvotes'])
	{
		$totpercent = "100%";
	}
	else
	{
		$totpercent = "0%";
	}

	// Check if user is allowed to edit posts; if so, show "edit poll" link.
	$edit_poll = '';
	if(is_moderator($fid, 'canmanagepolls'))
	{
		eval("\$edit_poll = \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll_editpoll")."\";");
	}

	// Decide what poll status to show depending on the status of the poll and whether or not the user voted already.
	if(isset($alreadyvoted) || isset($showresults) || isset($nopermission))
	{
		if($alreadyvoted)
		{
			$pollstatus = $lang->already_voted;

			$undovote = '';
			if($mybb->usergroup['canundovotes'] == 1)
			{
				eval("\$undovote = \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll_undovote")."\";");
			}
		}
		elseif($nopermission)
		{
			$pollstatus = $lang->no_voting_permission;
		}
		else
		{
			$pollstatus = $lang->poll_closed;
		}

		$lang->total_votes = $lang->sprintf($lang->total_votes, $totalvotes);
		eval("\$pollbox = \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll_results")."\";");
		$plugins->run_hooks("showthread_poll_results");
	}
	else
	{
		$closeon = '&nbsp;';
		if($poll['timeout'] != 0)
		{
			$closeon = $lang->sprintf($lang->poll_closes, my_date($mybb->settings['dateformat'], $expiretime));
		}

		$publicnote = '&nbsp;';
		if($poll['public'] == 1)

			$publicnote = $lang->public_note;

		eval("\$pollbox = \"".$templates->get("showthread_poll")."\";");
		$plugins->run_hooks("showthread_poll");
	}

}

Basically I copied and pasted from showthread.php to "poll_sort" function and altered it a little bit.

It sorts polls using arsort, arsort($votesarray);

Well this doesn't work as a plugin. But it worked when I altered the showthread.php directly.
How do I achieve this as a plugin? or any tips

Thank you very much.

I tested hooks with many custom variable but it looks like only "showthread_start" allow me to use custom variable in template. Others hooks such as
showthread_poll_results
showthread_poll
showthread_ismod
showthread_threaded
showthread_linear
showthread_end

They all do not allow me to use custom variable, and also any modification of $options, $polloptions, $poll (all global variable) are all ignored, so that sorting doesn't work but show polls in original order.


Solution
All I had to do is to use "showthread_end" and return $pollbox;.This $pollbox should be global variable.
If I use showthread_poll hook then it goes to infinite loop. So I used showthread_end hook instead.
