I am in need of some help with i poll i found a site that makes polls but it only has 10 options and i need 48 so i was wondering if there is any free poll makers out there that give you a good amount of options to add into a poll or if anyone would be kind anof to make a website just with a poll and a admin cp so i could add in what i need its probly to much but i figured i would ask.


Thanks
I can only learn what i want to learn.

Sooo..what sort of webpage do you already have, and what do you intend to do with the results? A simple html page with checkboxes would seem like it should do the trick:

<p>What is your favorite operating system?</p>
Windows 95: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="win95" /><br />
Windows ME: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="winme" /><br />
Windows NT: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="winnt" /><br />
Windows XP: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="winxp" />

Then you need something on your backend to process the results. Without knowing what you have going on, it's a bit tough to give appropriate advice.

Well the poll is being used for some names i have come up with for a band me and a few people are making and because its so hard to choose a name i figured i would make a poll and let people choose and in about or month or so what ever 5 have the top rating we would sit down and choose what one we liked best and i dont want anything to fancy just something fast i could set up.
I can only learn what i want to learn.

<sarcasm>Well it's really quite simple. You first set up a DTD to parse the XML data, or optionally use an XML schema to verify the input, and then dump it to a SQL database.</sarcasm>

I understand what you want, I don't have a clue as to how you think I can help you. Do you even have a web page? I can't possibly help you until I know what there is to work with, understand? :thumbsup:

A really low tech, yet technological, solution would be to set up an HTML form with all your options (and perhaps a suggestion box) and then use a free forms processor (a quick Googler search led me to Allforms, don't know how good they are) to e-mail you the results with which you then manually update your poll numbers.

Example:
<form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/mailme"> <!--The Free Forms Service will give you the info for the method and action -->
<input type="radio" name="bandname"  value="Rolling_Scrollwheels">The Rolling Scrollwheels
<input type="radio" name="bandname" value="spaceyspacebars">Spacey Spacebar and the Return Keys
<input type="radio" name="bandname" value="LCDC">LCDC
<input type="radio" name="bandname" value="captaincapslock">Captain Caps Lock and the Print Screens(Featuring Sys Rq)

<textarea name="suggestions" rows="5" cols="30"></textarea>
<input type="Submit"><input type="Reset">

</form>

Which is of course assuming that he even has web-space in the first place. :thumbsup: I still don't know. I guess that's why they call you Amazing Andrew?

Web space takes 30 seconds to get, if you're willing to put up with some ads. From the sound of things, he'd be well served by getting a geocities page and using it until they decide on a name.

They call me amazing because I can make a carton of cigarettes disappear in under 3 minutes using only a magnifying glass and a gallon of Seagram's extra dry gin.
