I added a poll to my website (www.livingfinanciallyfreeministries.com/poll.php), and everytime I reload the page in IE or Opera after voting, the last vote gets counted again?

This problem does not happen in Firefox 3.0.1.

Suggestions?

Yes, using the Reload/Refresh button/icon on the toolbar.

If you refresh after posting a form (or vote) then every browser will resend the information it's just sent. They will usually ask if you want to do this though. If you have the ip tables turned on this should not incrememnt the vote.

Carbonize,

Thanks for the quick response. I was asked if I wanted to repost the information, but Firefox doesn't increment, where IE and Opera do. Can't seem to find the selection for the IP Tables under General Settings. Any suggestions where I should look?

I am hosting my website with godaddy and installed Advanced Poll from their application page. I allowed godaddy to install for me but based on the information listed I am using a MySQL database.

Found it.

Under General Settings/Miscellaneous/Check...set the value to IP Table and changed the Locking Timeout.

Hope this helps someone else.
