online poll
 
I don't anything about web programming except for very basic html. What is a quick easy way to make an poll? One like the poll I included with this post.

I'll bet there's an open-source PHP solution for that. I don't think you can do it in just HTML because you'll need to communicate back to the server and have it do things on the server itself. Is LQ open-source? If so, maybe you can just make your own hacked version of the poll you just created.

I guess that answers my question. I don't know what PHP is but yeah I wasn't expecting an easy html answer.

The poll can be created rather easily in php/mysql but you would have to learn to code first. There's no way to do it in raw HTML because you need a data source to store the data. There is most likely a free solution available for this somewhere.
