View Full Version : PHP Poll

07-06-2005, 10:55 AM
I built a php poll for my site. Features are

- Set Poll Title
- Set 4 Poll options
- Set a Poll Background Image

You can see it in action here http://www.game-reviews.ca left hand column. Its a 30minute poll but I am open to any suggestions on modifications before I release the code.

There doesnt seem anything to stop someone voting more than once - That could be a problem

Also with the image you cant seem the scores (other than that looks good with the image behind the form)

using Ie or Firefox? I did not test it out in firefox. And you are right you can vote more then once. I always believe in making equal opportunity code. I make code even for morons :)

- Added a check to optimize the code
- Made it so you can only vote once a week on a poll.

- added text that tells you "you already voted" so you know why you cant vote twice, in case your REALLY slow :)

I got "We only allow you to vote once on our polls. I know we are evil. So make your votes count!" and I hadn't voted before...

it selectively decided your not allowed to vote :) Dont know what to tell you works fine for me but i will get a couple guinea pigs to test it for me.
