Hello, I'm trying to write a widget that displays a poll in a side bar to interact with users better.

I came across several PHP + Ajax jQuery poll scripts and the they work okay outsite Q2A system. However, when I tried to put it in a Q2A plugin, it doesn't work as expected.

Such a script contains 3 parts: a user backend polling input & output; a javascript code that introduces an ajax page to handle the polling data when users click; and an ajax page to process data.

My question is "Do we need to register that ajax page?"

I can't find a tutorial here.

Example of a javascript script

$(document).ready(function()
{
        
    /*
    
    using $.post() function
    
    $(document).on('submit', '#reg-form', function()
    {       
        $.post('submit.php', $(this).serialize())
        .done(function(data)
        {
            $("#reg-form").fadeOut('slow', function()
            {
                $(".result").fadeIn('slow', function()
                {
                    $(".result").html(data);   
                });
            });
        })
        .fail(function()
        {
            alert('fail to submit the data');
        });
        return false;
    });   
    
    using $.post() function
    
    */
    
    
    $(document).on('click', '.quickpollsubmit', function()
    {
       
        //var fn = $("#fname").val();
        //var ln = $("#lname").val();
            //var data = 'fname='+fn+'&lname='+ln;
        //var data = $(this).serialize();
       
        $('#quickpollsubmit').val($(this).val());
                var data = $("#quickpoll").serialize();
               
        $.ajax({
       
        type : 'POST',
        url  : 'quickpoll_vote.php',
        data : data,
        success :  function(data)
                   {                       
                        $("#quickpoll").fadeOut(500).hide(function()
                        {
                            $(".quickpollwrapper").fadeIn(500).show(function()
                            {
                                $(".quickpollwrapper").html(data);
                               
                            });
                           
                           
                        });
                       
                   }
        });
        return false;
    });     
    
});

Example of an ajax page (quickpoll_vote.php):

<?php  
include('settings.php');
     
   
 if($_POST['quickpollsubmit'] == 'Vote') {
 
   if(($quickpolltype == "radio" && $_POST['radiovote'] != '') || ($quickpolltype == "checkbox" && $_POST['checkboxvote'] != '')){
   
    // grab users IP address
    $ipAddress = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
    
    $UserIptxt = $ipAddress."||";
    $all_ips = explode("||", file_get_contents("data/user_ip.txt"));
    if ( ! in_array($ipAddress, $all_ips) ) {
       // put the ip address in .txt file
       file_put_contents("data/user_ip.txt", $UserIptxt, FILE_APPEND);
       
    }
    // ip adres is already stored
    else {
     echo '<div class="alreadyvoted">You have already voted!</div>';
    }
   }
   // if no input
   else {
        echo '<div class="noinput">You have to make at least one choice!</div>';
   }
 }
