Trusting the client is not a good method of preventing multiple entries. If someone deletes their cookies they would be able to vote again. A better method would be to only accept one vote per IP address a day, or one vote per IP + user agent per day.

yes but if i can verify the unique config or if the IP has already visited the site today… i know if he’s vote can be registred!
if i understand piwik… save unique_id for an IP and he save too if the ip was logged again this day… so i can check if the unique_id of that ip was already visit us today…

i’m not really sure if i explain this good…

I want to request to … if exist some function who tell me the crypted config of the user style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif

thank you
