The Finnish blog awards

The voting for last years best Finnish (not necessarliy in Finnish) blogs (Kultainen Kuukkeli) is open. There’s also a blog related to the whole process. The voting takes place in Finnish and you need a valid email address to complete the voting process.

I wrote the code that takes care of the voting process, PHP’s ability to accept arrays from a form helped minimize the amount of code that was needed. Some JavaScript is also used to identify the title entered by the user and automatically fill an URL. In case your wondering how the JavaScript matching works, it looks for the shortest title that begins with the text entered. If no titles match, then the first title that has the entered text as a substring will be used. For example, entering jalo will match The Life of Jalo and entering randomf will match this blog (at its old address).

Now go vote, you have until March 27!
