View Full Version : Voting Gateway removal?

04-21-2003, 04:50 AM
Hi. I hope this is the right place?

I am trying to make my toplist automatically add votes to the list as soon as the link is clicked.

Maybe forwarding or something.

However, some of the coding is in PHP. (I have tried the PHP forum, but was told it was the wrong place!)

The form just includes an input button.

Does anyone know how I can change this button's code directly to a meta tag forwarding link?

<form action="in.php" method="post">
<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" class="button" value="'.$_VoteFor_.$web->web.'">

I was thinking along the lines of -


It did'nt work though! :(

Please help.

Well, whoever told you that was wrong. Anyway, my php is rusty...but I think you make it the name of the input:

<input type="submit" name="'.$_VoteFor_.$web->web.'" value="Vote!" class="button">

See if that works...If it doesn't, go back to the php forum and ask again. :p

If I understand correctly, that wont work...

<input type="submit" name="<?php echo $_VoteFor_.$web->web; ?>" value="Vote!" class="button">

I just thought, If you were going to print it to the page:

echo '<input type="submit" name="'.$_VoteFor_.$web->web.'" value="Vote!" class="button">';

then that would be correct.

well the problem is that the script is most likely waiting for a post so you can't do a get ...

You can do <a href="somewhere.com" onClick="form.submit()"> though so it's no problem.

It seems like I may have mislead you all here! :)

I know that I could add a button to the page. (Which I have already got!)

This is a current voting page for the site -


As you can see. The button is already there, built by PHP. I know (I think) how I can change what the PHP builds on the page.

So what I'm looking for is a way that, maybe as soon as the page with the information the button sends, can be automatically sent once the page loads.

Hence killing the need to click the button.

My toplist only updates hits that are sent through this button. I want to change it so that the hit is counted when the page loads.

Can this be done? If so, how? :confused:

Isnt that all you need? then window.location ?

It looks like we may be getting towards it with that.

I'll post all the scripts and try to detail what I'm trying to do here.

First of all the toplist is written all in PHP and does not require MySQL. All details are stored into DAT files.

This is the file created for one of the members.

if(stristr($PHP_SELF,'1050010645.4508.php')) {
$this->web='Abstract Fonts';
$this->descripcion='The Biggest In The WORLD!!! CATEGORIES: Archive,18+,3D,Bloody,Cartoon,Decorative,Dingbats,Distorted, Famous,Futuristic,Graffiti,Handwriting, Holidays,LED,Old English + 10 more';

This file is loaded at

It then loads this page -

// in.php
// rev005

if(!isset($ID)) {
if(isset($id)) $ID=$id;
if(isset($Id)) $ID=$Id;

$cookies=new Cookies;
$web=new SitioWebAvanzado($ID);
$index=new Index;

if(!$index->Existe($ID)) {
echo '<script>window.location.href="index.php";</script>';

if($HTTP_REFERER==$gTopURL.'in.php?ID='.$ID) $irIndex=1;
//if($HTTP_REFERER==$topURL2.'in.php?ID='.$ID) $goindex=1;
//if($HTTP_REFERER==$topURL2.'in.php?site='.$ID) $goindex=1;

if($gAntitrampaCookies) {
if($tiempo=$cookies->webUltIN($ID)) {
if($tiempo > abs(time()-$gTiempoVoto)) $ilegal1=1;
if($gAntitrampaIPs) {
if($tiempo=$web->ipsExiste(capturarIP())) {
if($tiempo > abs(time()-$gTiempoVoto)) $ilegal2=1;

if($irIndex) { //Llamada desde el propio script
if($ilegal1==0 AND $ilegal2==0) {
$HTML.='<table align="center" border="0" class="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="5">';
$HTML.='<tr><td colspan="0" align="center" class="title">'.$gTopNombre.'</td></tr>';
$HTML.='<tr class="1"><td align="center" valign="middle" class="text">'.$_VoteCount_.'</td></tr>';
$HTML.='<tr class="2"><td align="center" valign="middle" class="minititle">'.$_Entering_.'</td></tr>';
//Mostramos todas o sólo una categoria.
if($gTipoTop) {
} else {
} else { //Llamada desde un servidor externo
if($ilegal1 OR $ilegal2) {
//Voto NO válido
$HTML.='<table align="center" border="0" class="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="5">';
$HTML.='<tr><td colspan="2" align="center" class="title">'.$gTopNombre.'</td></tr>';
$HTML.='<tr class="0"><td align="center" valign="middle" class="minititle">'.$_InvalidVote_.'</td></tr>';
$HTML.='<tr class="1"><td align="center" valign="middle" class="text"><br><a href="'.$web->webURL.'" target="_blank">'.$web->web.'</a><br><div id="cont"> </div><br></td></tr>';
$HTML.='<tr class="2"><td align="center" valign="middle" class="text"><a href="index.php">'.$_WithoutVote_.'</a></td></tr>';
$HTML.='<script>reloj=new Reloj('.abs($tiempo-time()+$gTiempoVoto).',\'cont\',\''.$_WhenVote_.'\',1); setInterval(\'reloj.Atras()\',1000);</script>';
} else {
//Vote Valid
$HTML.='<form action="in.php" method="post">';
$HTML.='<table align="center" border="0" class="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="5">';
$HTML.='<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" class="button" value="'.$web->web.'"><br>&nbsp;</td></tr>';
$HTML.='<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" name="ID" value="'.$ID.'">';

echo $HTML;

The piece of code I have been cocerntrating on is near the end -

//Vote Valid
$HTML.='<form action="in.php" method="post">';
$HTML.='<table align="center" border="0" class="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="5">';
$HTML.='<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" class="button" value="'.$web->web.'"><br>&nbsp;</td></tr>';
$HTML.='<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" name="ID" value="'.$ID.'">';

This is the part that contains the voting button with the hidden ID field.
In order for the button to be automatically clicked - which part would I need to change to enable the it to do it automatically?

I gather Javascript is the way to go with this.
The form currently does not have a form name, but I guess that could be changed.

Can the document.formname.submit() command be run automatically from with the script?

If so, what do I need to change?

BTW I love this site!
Without it - Webmasters are nothing!
