hi,
i'm a newbie programmer and i just built a website with a poll. the page is completely in html and linked to the php script processing the poll result in the action attribute of the form tag. my problem is the results of the poll comes up in a new page but i need the results of the poll to appear just under the poll itself on the same page. can anybody help me with that?

ei.. if you want you're result on the same page use:

<form method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];"></form>

then you're php code for the result on the top of you're html..
hope this help :)

i thought about this option, but that would mean i have to put the php and html code on the same page, right? is there any way i could do this without putting the php and html codes on the page?

like:

<?php
//index.php
<form action="otherPage.php" method="post"><form>
?>

<?php
//otherPage.php
if($result)
{
// use meta tag here or header("Location: index.php");
}
?>

is that what you mean.. processing from other page

enim

yes this is exactly what i mean. the problem is that when i code this way, the result of the poll does not appear right underneath the poll questions but instaed on a different page. do you have any suggestions as to how i could solve this problem


like:

<?php
//index.php
<form action="otherPage.php" method="post"><form>
?>

<?php
//otherPage.php
if($result)
{
// use meta tag here or header("Location: index.php");
}
?>

is that what you mean.. processing from other page

put the table in a form and only put the method example:
<form name="Form1" method="POST"> and do not put any action and in the form put a submit button with name = "submit"
that is how when submit button is pressed then the page will submit on herself
