I must preface this question with the fact that I am NOT an programmer of webpages. I set up and run my site using the JustHost Sitebuilder's templates.

I have set up AdvancePoll and have no problem in creating a poll. Exceptionally nice application!

The problem is, how do I incorporate the AdvancePoll poll into my template page? I have used the Sitebuilder's Enter HTML Code button, cut & paste the snipet provided by AdvancePoll, save it & then run the page and no poll - just the last little bit of the snipet appears as text on the page. How do I do it?

Or, is AdvancePoll only for those who program/write web pages & I am trying to use this tool in a way in which it is not meant to be used? (Am I using a hammer on a screw?)

Thanks much in advance for any help you can provide... and boy, do I need help!!!

I have discovered this to be the case when using PHP scripts in various forms.
I did not know how to directly imbed them, nor did i want to change EVERY .html to PHP, so I created a button and directed the viewer to the proper page via the link on the button to the .PHP version. Works great.

The webserver will first look for index.html or index.htm and if it doesn't find one it will look for index.php.

@drkneb - You need to change the files extension from .html to .php so that it will get sent to the PHP processor.
