How to include Opinion Poll into your site

The opinion poll page gives your visitor the opportunity to cast a vote on the current opinion poll. It's fun and serious at the same
time because the poll results reflect the sentiment of the group that voted. The more votes, the more accurate the results.
Method 1: A simple hyperlink anywhere on a page in your site
  • Display the Opinion Poll Results page as the start page
    This page displays the results of all the opinion polls starting from the current poll to the oldest poll. Interesting stuff indeed - and a good start page to this service!

    This page has a link that allows your visitor to access the voting page so that they can participate in the current poll.

    Copy the link you require in the text area ->

Try it: opinion poll results
  • Display the Voting Page as the start page
    If your visitor has not voted on the current poll, the voting page is displayed and this allows them to vote. However, if the visitor has already voted then this page will automatically redirect them to a results page that displays the results of the current poll and thanks them for voting.

    How does the page know if the visitor has already voted? Simple - the IP address of the voter is saved in the database together with the poll ID!

    Copy the link you require in the text area ->
    (Note that you'll need to replace the "x" with the correct parameter value)

Method 2: Using an image as a hyperlink

  • Use an image as a visual hyperlink
    Right click on the image and select 'Save Image As' then save it on your site in your images folder, or link to it using the link on the right. When you have the image on your page, insert one of the hyperlinks as discussed above and the image becomes your visual link.
You could link directly to this image like this:

Method 3: Using an inline frame

Using an inline frame, the opinion poll results page can become a physical part of your page - and it's the easiest to implement. Just copy the code on the right and past it into the HTML code of your page at the place you want the inline frame to appear.

You can change the parameters to suit your page, but don't make the width less than 820 pixels (the news and events page is 800 wide). I don't recommend changing the frameborder parameter. If you must, the only other parameter to use there is 1, which creates a frame border.
