View Full Version : How to create a voting system?

12-23-2010, 03:40 AM
I run a site on tumblr. I know its not as good as wordpress and doesn't allow as many options but I am looking to create a unique voting option for each post. Like an up down vote. Any ideas on how to set this up? Can it be done?

You will have to be using some kind of server-side system to record the votes. There is no possible way for user A to know what user B had done with JavaScript-only systems.

Once you have your server-side capabilities set up, then come back and talk about what you need from JavaScript (if anything...if you can do this in an <iframe>, you could do it with no JavaScript at all).

So create like a php system linked a database and insert it with iframe to each post?

That would certainly be one of the simplest ways. Probably the simplest, in fact.
