I need a polls form created that will allow only logged-in users to vote in. I want the poll visible to non-users, but the submit button is inactive.

I don't know of a simple or example solution for this. Custom code can surely do something for you. Let me ask a question though. How does a non-user know how to submit the form. Are you going to write up some text?

A version of this code can put in place a class that you could then disable with JS/JQuery: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_submit_button_class/#kb-add-a-class-to-a-single-submit-button

Maybe something this:
add_filter('frm_submit_button_class', 'add_submit_class', 10, 2);
function add_submit_class( $classes, $form ){
if ( $form->id == 123 ) {
if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
$classes[] = 'my-custom-enabled-class';
} else {
$classes[] = 'my-custom-disabled-class';
return $classes;

Then maybe something like this:
jQuery("input.my-custom-disabled-class").attr("disabled", true);

Yes, the goal is to have the poll visible on a post directing viewers to login to vote. I was hoping it could be done using conditional logic within the buttons field.
