My Poll aims to provide an easy to use add in solution for adding voting interaction on webpages. The package includes both a CGI script and an SSI for embedding into .shtml pages. Both interfaces use the same config file and can be used exclusively or in combination. A question and list of answers is entered in the config file. The included CGI script can be a accessed directly to present the user with the question and list of options. After making a selection, a pretty bar graph is displayed with the results. The included SSI script can be used to embed the question and answers in a smaller table within a webpage. Clicking on one of the options in the SSI page shows the results in a new popup window. The script has optional time based IP logging to prevent multiple votes from the same IP address within a specified window.
