After many failed attempts other using other methods, this failed attempt seemed the most promising: [frm-entry-update-field id=[id] field_id=222 value=[auto_id start=1] label=Vote!]

...but failed to work because the frm-entry-update-field, by design, doesn't stick around if the value doesn't change. Also, as the voting option would be open to the entirety of the internet - not just logged in users - not sure if it would work anyway. ?

What's another way to tally a number of votes for a specific id?

Add a hidden field in the form with an auto update value, every time the system will see it like a different vote.

That would be great, but what I trying to do is implement voting on the form entries after the fact. So, (1) a user fills out the form. (2) The form entries are displayed in a view and then (3) anyone online - not just folks logged in - and vote on which entry is their favorite. I'm using WP Ulike now, but I want to be able to sort it by popularity, so figured there must be a way to do it in FF.
