One of our product uniqueness is we made our scripts capable to fit into your existing web design.

Before   After Integration

1. Create New PHP Page

Create a PHP page where you would like to set up your online poll. Save the web page file with .php extension, such as votecaster.php. You can put the file in any directory on the server.

2. Find the Document Path

To ensure that your Vote Caster works regardless the location of the PHP page, you will need to add your server's Document Path to all the PHP include codes.

To find the Document Path, open the


file with your text editor, and note down the value for $path["docroot"]. Let's assume the Document Path is C:/wwwroot/user/myadmin/

To do this, open the votecaster.php file with text editor, and put it to the

topmost line (line 1)

of the PHP file, without any preceded character.

  include_once ("C:/wwwroot/user/myadmin/config.php");

  include_once ("C:/wwwroot/user/myadmin/common/session.php");
  include_once ("C:/wwwroot/user/myadmin/common/css.php");

4. Include Vote Caster Menu and Content

a. To display the Vote Caster menu:-

<?php include("C:/wwwroot/user/myadmin/votecaster/"); ?>
b. To display the vote campaign questions and results in the content area:-
