    A poll is rather simple to do but you need a script (asp,cgi or php) on the server so you can save the results and retrieve them.

    I use a very simple cgi script called FlashDB (free from http://www.kessels.com, theres a free php from http://www.flash-db.com). You can then make polls, counters and all sort of things. Its like a very small simple database.

    I have an example .fla with the basics at http://www.pellepiano.com/tester/ex_poll.fla and for a live example with a piechart

    The script is on your server, where you publish your site, right ?

    Strange, I have no problems getting to the poll or downloading the .fla or going to kessels.com from the links.

    And yes, the FlashDB script is on my server. Its a smart script, cause I can use it for how many different textfiles I want. Just have to specify which file to write to in the flash file.
