Hi

How would you go about creating a web poll, that when an answer is submitted the results come up? I imagine its quite easy because many site have this sort of poll, do you have any tutorials on how to do this, or any tips on how i would get started.

Cheers mark

you need a site with a database backend

you will also need a login system

this means you will require a scripting language to impliment this (PHP, ASP, Coldfusion etc)

a poll works on the fact that its a 1 vote system and you cant change your mind or vote twice so this means it has to remember who you are and if you voted before so that rules out a client side language like javascript.

maybe a poll tutorial is needed

i will add this to the list

in the mean time try these PHP tuts and i will guide you further once you have covered them
