Hello! I am a 17 year old student, working on some IT-project at school. I'm not very experienced, though IT is my hobby... I said that, since I want as simple replies as possible, not like hardcore high leveled developers replies!
So, I'm 100% new to this forum, but wanted to join, simply because I'll need much help now, which I can't really get from my teacher.
Now, to the real topic:
I'm currently making a webiste (in norwegian) where one can vote to what one think is the best product (for example...)
As I don't have the whole IT vocabulary, I'm gonna have to explain what I mean in a.... N00bish way.
Heres the complete idea: I want to make the voting-part as automatic as possible. I want the user/client/whatever to just click on a picture to vote. Then the vote will be magically registered (with the clients IP as primary key???), and the client will be redirected to the main page/or the rusults page.
This is my idea, but I really need help to make it work. None of my books have anything near this to help me, nor do I know what to search for in google.
Sorry for a long and depressive post, but I hope some people can take the time and try understanding what I meant, and then lead me to the right direction
This is how you can do it only with php.
This is the HTML file
<? //connect and select the db, get the info you need if([ip_check])//check if the ip is already in your DB. if so header('Location:[results_page]'); ?> [HTML] <html> <a href="[your_script].php?id=[unique_value_integer]"><img src="[path_to_your_image]"/></a> <a href="[your_script].php?id=[unique_value_integer]"><img src="[path_to_your_image]"/></a> //you can add more if you need </html> [/HTML]
This is the php script:
<?php //connect and select the db $id=intval($_REQUEST['id']); //insert the data in your db where the id=$id header('Location:[results_page]'); ?>
This way you don't have to use radio buttons and the user will see the poll only once, if he's ip doesn't change
Nice! Thank you very much, ssdog!
I will have to study your replies a bit though, as I atm don't really understand much of it. But I'm pretty sure I will get it soon, and thank you so much for your help!
I'll reply to this thread again some time, if there will be more I need help with. Hope you get a notification then? :P
