Thread: Poll script in PHP
04-07-2003, 03:15 PM #1SmithGuest
I have checked Hotscripts.com for a full day at work here and tried tons of different scripts...some come up with errors (i don't know php well enough to fix them), some require databases which I do not have access to.
What I need is a simple poll/voting script which does not require a database, written in php where people can vote, and the results will either pop up in a small window, or show up parsed where the poll was...or not come up at all, and require a person to click on a "view results" link.
Anyone got something I can use here?

Well, I'll tell you what, once I learn XML, I could pull it off... :P I don't know if I could use just regular php variables for that kind of a job... :P

HMmmmmm i will keep my eye out for you
But i must admit, it will probably be hard for you to find a vote script that uses no database.
also, the parse errors you see, are you sure that the script is configured correctly??
for example, what type of errors do you see?

I was going to say would writing to a flat file like a .txt file help you out. Just go out and get a php & mysql book and that will show you how to create a input section that writes to a file instead of a database. I don't know if that helps but that is my .02 cents.
