Code: Select all

foreach ($poll_info as $poll_option)
      $option_pct = ($poll_total > 0) ? $poll_option['poll_option_total'] / $poll_total : 0;
      $option_pct_txt = sprintf("%.1d%%", round($option_pct * 100));
The fix requires more data. Where is poll_total counted? Maybe it needs to count one per voter instead of one per option. Either that, or there might be another variable called something like voter_total. I'd need to hunt around in various parts of the polling code to suggest the best way to fix it.

Jane Austen was an instaget on Friday. Unfortunately, I convinced myself to change to George Eliot before the music ended.
