View Full Version : QUESTION: Web Designer - Pledge Counter?

How would I got making a pledge counter for LibertyWarChest.com similar to the ones past Fundraisers have.

I can give you a quick reply... You'll need to know a few things, Flash and Actionscript. I'm sure the Pledge Counter is also Data Base driven (it has to be honestly) So, the Actionscript will be pulling Database values and it will be displaying them.

Nothing really THAT intimidating... ;)

I have flash, can you message me an example script. Plus how would I connect to the feedburner database for the numbers.

Just to throw my 2 cents in... I doubt feedburner allows a direct connection into their database to pull data you're interested in. I think they only allow data file downloads. You could have a script that pulls the file though and parses it to get a total pledge number. Do some more research on what feedburner allows. I might be wrong.

I would recommend contacting the folks that created RonPaulBookBomb.com, because their counter is updated in real time.

You could set it up using this:

It's a mailing list generator. Sends you addresses of people who have pledged. Free too. You just have to count up all your emails in your inbox and update it that way. But otherwise it's fine.
