  • Initially, I had issues getting this working, but Arnolda was gracious enough to assist and extremely prompt in getting back to me. Thanks for a great poll and the above and beyond assistance!

  • All I can say is wow! The code is very good and clean and Arnolda offered the best customer support I’ve ever seen. I will definitely buy more of his work.

  • An excellent poll package suitable for most any polling requirement. I especially liked the video on how to load it on a server. Simple language, easy instructions…even if you’ve never set up a MySQL data base before, this video will show you the way.

  • Thanks for the nice comments! I’m glad to hear you found the tutorial helpful.

  • is is possible to add more than four answers to the poll?

    #  /  posted on May 01, 2010
  • Yes, it’s possible.
    It is a bit of work though, since you would have to add it on stage, in actionscript, in the php files, the text file and also in the database.

  • Hi-

    Love this poll... thanks so much for the beautiful work! I am wondering if its possible to host the .swf on a different server than the php? I need to implement the poll in a banner ad and the ad server cannot handle PHP so I need to set up the database on an separate external server which will also host the PHP file, while hosting the ad unit with the poll .swf on the ad server. Possible?

  • It's possible to host a swf on a different server. You could google this topic, it has to do with crossdomain policy.

  • I can get the poll to work but I need to alter a few things.

    I am using poll_4_smiley

    I need to change the text (click on the monkey to vote) to Click on the Face to Vote

    also when I view the poll results I need to remove the text "said" before each result because the new text i have used is not fitting into the poll results, letters are missing from the results.

    I tried to open the flash file but I get the error "unexpected file format"

    So can these alterations be made?

  • Thanks for the purchase, gary2010!

    About your question, yes all these things can be altered in the flash file. To open the file, you need flash CS3. The error you're getting usually means you're using a different version of flash.

    #  /  posted on May 20, 2011
  • Well I haven't got CS3

    #  /  posted on May 20, 2011
  • Whoops entered the message before I finshed.

    Like I said I haven't got CS3 and I am not going to purchase it just to change a few things. Why couldn't all the text have been added to the poll.txt file? this will have been muscl easy to alter.

    So bascially now I can't use this script, another pruchase I can't use, great...

  • Please, help me! I have been using this poll for weeks now and every 10 or so days my table resets!! I mean that all the votes go to zero again. So I modify the results from the phpmyadmin manually and thing works well again for a couple of days until it resets again.

    Do you have an idea of what it could be? I really love this poll.

    A million thanks

  • Hi James,

    Thank you for the purchase. Sorry to hear you're having troubles with the files. You can send me a message from my profile page.

    Best regards, Arnolda

  • Hello Arnolda, The send button is off on the email form on Flash Components. I got the file to work. How do I add more than 4 on the poll_4_imagesWhiteBG. I would like to have 6 or 8 if possible. Thanks Jim

  • I'm glad to hear you got the file to work. My email address is also in the read me file, so you can always send me an email that way too.

    To add more options for the poll, means you have to copy/paste one set and rename it. Than go to the files and add that option. You also have too add the new options in the database and also the php files.

    Hope this is of some help,

  • Hi, please I have three questions before purchase:

    1.Is there any timeout to be set and enable user to vote every day but once per 24hrs? 2.I want to use it for voting on best item in the gallery, therefore can I use it with at least 20 answers (items names)? it possible to distribute answers on stage horizontally and vertically, to avoid scrolling if I put 20 answers (items names) Thanks

  • Thanks for the interes author071,

    The flash file is included, that means you can make any changes you like. It depends on your knowlegde of flash (as3) if you'll be able to make these changes.

    1. there is no timeout set, so if you want this, you would have to add it in as3.
    2. You can use it with as many answers you like, but it is a lot of work to add this. You have to add the answers manually in all the files and database.

    Hope this answers your questions, Arnolda
