Problems With the Quiz?
« on: April 07, 2009, 10:00:34 AM »
If you are having any problems with the Quiz, post them in here...as stated earlier, the quiz software is still in the development stage and the developer needs feedback, no matter how small....

The problem I had when setting up the new user's quiz (Namibian Wonders):
When adding a new multiple answer question, there is a box called "answer text" in which I typed the explanation of the right answer.  Below that is four options of possible answers where you mark the correct answer.
Problem - when the quiz was completed, the text from the "answer text box" was added to the four options as a fifth option.  So it shows as another answer!

Here's a reply from smfmodding, the developer of the quiz..

"If there is a connection issue either on their end or your server's end during a quiz then you will obviously get problems, there isn't much I can do about it. If they come out of the quiz then they can continue it at a later time, although they would have missed the opportunity to answer one of the questions.

Now, if you are suggesting everyone is having an issue with a specific question on a quiz, that is entirely different and I can look into that, although I believe your issue is the former?"

I dont think it is a connection error.  It happened to me as well, even when the dark blue light was lit on my 3G, which is when connection is at its best.  Found a way to get around it though - just close the window, and go out of the quiz, then come back and carry on where you left off.

Bertie, you ain't alone.... I see on the forum section of the quiz developer that the same problem has been picked up as a bug, should be rectified soon... Thanks

A few of my quiz pages just boot me off after only a few questions & then tell me not completed later. Then tell me I have played the 1 only limit when I try to finish them.

A number of updates have been provided by the developer of the Quiz software, they have been updated on this site.... so Bertie, I think you should be able to create your quiz..... and you should not be getting timeouts on your quiz Cherry...let me know please...

Just had a "time-out" on the last question of the "Easy Rider" quiz.  Then it shows I played it twice, even though it is only allowed once.  I knew the answer to the last question - damn would have had 6/10!  All fun!

Mike, I'll try and add another quiz later today!  Enjoy your worsie on the beach where there's no cheetahs!

This is the same problem I had and still have ....and I am on 3g. I only get to play about 5 of the questions in some of them then when I want to go back and finish it tells me I've already played the game.
Could have got a lot more points.....most irritating.   notfair

Seems to be a wee competitive spirit going with you, me & Bertie!   image19  image201  image19  Maybe we should have a trivial pursuit evening - up for it you two?

Good idea from Patricia, Mike - would be nice to see which are the newest ones.
