...or maybe 1 to 10! (think 'hot or not') I have been messing with Dreamweaver for a few months now and have a good grasp of basic designs but I am a complete novice when it comes to PHP. No coding experience at all. I have managed to create a form upload using a Dreamweaver Extension and tried the same method by buying rating extension from another site...but it doesn't work :-( Must also mention their '24 hr support' is slightly less than satisfactory! I am willing to learn but am having trouble sorting through the mass of tutorials on the web. The tutorials I have found are aimed at people with some programming knowledge...I get confused from the outset (I am not retarded, I promise) This is a hobby so am looking for something free.

Can anyone help at all?? :-)

Sadly, not so young! :wink:

Thanks for the pointer.

I'll have a look through the tutorials at home tonight (can only get away with so much at work).

Thanks Cary. I disocovered that I have Fantastico Deluxe with my web host :roll: so have used the 'advanced poll' feature there and integrated that into my Dreamweaver site. This is a hell :evil: of a learning curve so I'm sure I'll be back!
