No... some days are just better than others.

Why not try a test poll? Start with the demo1.php file that came with the poll program or try the test poll below.

1. Save the following as a document called polltest.php

2. Replace the path in the above code with yours.
  • include "poll/poll_cookie.php"; - assumes you have the poll files in a directory called poll. If not, change "poll" to your poll directory name.

    include_once "/home/xxxxxxx/public_html/poll/booth.php"; - In Advanced Poll's Admin Panel, click on help, and it will give you your code.

  • 3. In Advanced Poll's Admin Panel, make sure you have created a poll with ID #1.

    4. Put the polltest.php file on your server that has php. Without php, you will only get "poll_process(1); ?> " or something like that.

    If this works for you, it should give you an idea how to incorporate the poll into one of your existing pages. Otherwise if you need more help, you will probably have to allow someone access to set it up for you.

    Good luck.

    Login to your poll using the admin url:

    http://<yourdomain>/poll/db/admin/index.php

    Choose the link Create a new poll. Hope this helps someone.

    I've got the same problem. I've installed Advanced Poll from the Fantastico scripts via my webhost. I've navigated to the admin page and logged in and I've created a poll. I've also created a poll.php page that includes my HTML for the website and the required php. Now I have to include the poll path which is not immediately obvious. Where do I find the poll file?

    OK. I finally got this working by going to the help file on the admin page and copying the php code into my poll.php file. It was fine during testing but when I published it I got an error on the home page of my site where I had the link to poll.php and when I clicked on the link I got the page with all the spiel about the poll and then I simply got the code for the poll echoed.
    poll_process(5); // x = 5 ? >
    The poll isn't showing up. Help please.

    The page needs to end with .php and not .htm nor .html.
