Okay, i'll be releasing this to the beta testers in another day or so but first I need to get some info from them.

1) Do you plan on testing this on a demo board first?

2) How many of you need an install.php file for the db's?
-- The install file would only take a few minutes.

This MOD like the last one will use the Point System & Allowance System. I need testers for both but not at the same time so...

3) Who wants to test the Points? Who wants to test Allowance?

Quick Update : This is taking longer than I thought. Mainly because I've confuzed myself silly with the id's that were needed. But now its starting to look good. Here was the problem, The main Quiz Topic needed a topic and then questions had to be identified to this topic. However Answers needed to be linked with the questions. So I took care of this by making three tables, each with a main id. The questions table also has an extra id field which records which Quiz Topic it belongs to. The answers work the same way but record wich Question they belong to.

Reason for this : This is so an Admin could setup a Quiz Topic with unlimited questions / answers. Basically in your ACP you'll be able to add a new Quiz, edit that quiz and Add questions to it. It works like how the Ranks System works. If you want a new Rank you just add a new one. In the question editor you'll be able to add as many possible answers to the question as you see fit. There will also be a radio toggle so you can click on which answer is the right answer. This won't be shown to users until they finish the quiz. ;)

Extra Info : Theres also slots for charging/rewarding users per Quiz Topic, Question, and Answer. This will help in configuring your quiz charging methods. If you only want to charge/reward per quiz then you can. If you want to take it a step further then you can also charge/reward for each question answered. Theres also a Bonus slot if you wish to reward your users for completing the quiz with all questions answered correctly.

If anyone else has any ideas that haven't been posted here, then please list them now so they can be included when all the hard stuff has been done. ;)

KooL! Heres some screen shots plus some info on my progress so far.

Main menu
Admin Menu
Editing a Quiz
Editing a Question
Editing an Answer

I almost had it done until I found a nasty bug. Once you deleted a question it would delete all the questions for all the quizs, so now I'm trying to get all that worked out so admins can add/delete stuff without it effecting other quiz's. Once this is done it won't be long, just have to plug in the small detail things like charge/reward amounts then also check those when a user goes to use a quiz. But so far its lookin good. :D
