1.1.1 is almost done. I've finished the permissions, and I'm just trying to think of some other small things I could add before I release it.

I'm afraid the updater may not be ready, but there is always hope :)

I really do hope so, otherwise I can't update my v1.0.6 :(

Great work

First of all good work with the MOD! I hope you can also integrate a feature to attach images at the quiz. Will be a pretty cool stuff when it's added.! :)

I can create quizzes no problem. But then the quizzes don't show up. The installation didn't give me any errors.

Any ideas?

UPDATE: the polls are going into the database they just aren't showing up on the quiz page. I am using the advanced user profile mod.

Ignore my last post I hadn't created any categories.

But I do have a request. Would it be possible that after a user takes the quiz that his score (and perhaps his answers) be PMed to the author of the quiz.

I do find it a bit odd that the results are not put into the database.

If you have been reading around, you would know that statistics will be done in 1.1.2 mate :wink:

Most of the features mentioned have either been done already, or are already planned :)

bonjomatic mentioned images, that is already done, I just need to package the version before I put it up to download.

Thanks :D

Is there a way to upgrade manually from 1.0.6? I've read that youwill be providing an SQL updater for the next version, but is it possible to do in a "hand made" way? I would like to keep the already played and "installed" questions (around 100+), if possible.

Thanks a lot! :)

It is possible, but it would be extremely tedious. If you have 5 or so questions, it might not be too bad, but 100+ would require a hell of a lot of time :lol:

Yeah, I saw that. I'm not so interested in statistics as simply having a PM or email sent to the Quiz author with the final score on completion. I thought this would be easy and will perhaps take a look myself.

Thanks for a great mod. Look forward to future versions...

I'm interested in what the users think about this:

What is better when it comes to cash?

1. User who submits / makes the quiz decides how much money a user can win or lose.
2. Admin makes the decision regardless.

With #1, the admin sets the boundaries, so users can't make it possible to win millions and millions of dollars.

I plan to make it based on per correct answer to make it fair. So if it is set for $20 for a correct answer, and $10 for a wrong answer, the quiz has 5 questions, and the user gets 2 correct: $40 (20x2) - $30 (3x10) = $10 win.

Please post any suggestions :)

Best would be to have both options available if possible.

Another fun feature that might motivate more people to submit quizzes would be if there can be a cost set to take a quiz and every time someone takes the quiz the cost goes in to the submitters pocket, this would in most cases need to be a small sum.

In that case I will probably go with #1 :)
I agree with the play tax

I just discovered a small bug in 1.1.1 which affects permissions, nothing major, and very easy to fix (it has already been fixed for the next version).

To fix the bug, please follow the instructions listed at http://cmxmods.net/quiz.php?new=111&issues=1
