When duplicating his shown moves, I do not get it to display. I am assuming it is a version difference, and that I should just check it?
Screenshots in the Knowledge Base article are out-of-date, as has been discussed in many previous posts in this thread. They were probably made in phpBB 3.0.2 and don't work in the current version (3.0.4). As for why they haven't been updated, I think it's probably because custom fields are going to change again in the next release (3.0.5), so they're probably waiting for that release before updating the Knowledge Base article.
In the meantime, settings that work in 3.0.4 are shown in my post at viewtopic.php?p=9260725#p9260725 and another (perhaps preferable) set that also work in my post at viewtopic.php?p=9659425#p9659425
Also see the next few posts after the second of these links, for some very simple code changes you can make to enhance custom fields; e.g., to get a custom text field with only one right answer, or a custom drop-down box with only a single "right" answer instead of a single "wrong" answer.
