WP Survey And Quiz Tool
Few Questions & Suggestions (54 posts)

    Hi,

    Great looking plugin although there is a couple of things which I think would make it better. These may be usage questions though, if I'm missing something... :)

    1. Ability to customise the colours used by the Google Chart API. Depending on your number of options the orange colour can get pretty similar.

    2. Aligning the Google Chart title. On questions with longer titles the title misses bits from the image generated through the API.

    3. There seems to be a bug with the Likert type. There is a few threads in this forum showing the error (such as: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wp-survey-and-quiz-tool-likert-questions-error?replies=1)

    4. When using the Likert type allow for the user to customise the scale, such as 1-5 rather than 1-10, and perhaps substitute for other values like Agree, Strongly Agree, Disagree, etc.

    5. Allow for longer Questions in the Quiz, currently they are capped at 255.

    6. Ability to remove scoring feature. It makes a lot of sense for having a scoring system in the Quiz, but when the type is Survey I'm not sure it is as useful and could be simplified by having an Option to disable it where appropriate.

    Hi,

    Following on from that, a couple of more questions that have came to mind,

    7. Is there any way to show numbers on the Google Graphs?

    8. Is there a way to export single results, perhaps to XML/XLS/PDF?

    Cheers!

    I also have a suggestion.
    It would be nice to have options to chose other languages. Maybe people interesting in this option (for eg. me) could make translations it their native languages?

    Ok, i've done some of translations manually, but i think it would be a good solution, to make language php file with array of strings and in every file where we use a string we could give a reference to our php language file.

    Congratulations on a great plug-in, guys.

    I think there will be plenty of users who will find items 4 and 6 really valuable, and I'm certainly one of them. I can't start to use it until you implement them (or something like them). Items 7 and 8 less important, abut still really valuable.

    Ollie, can you give some visibility about whether/when you think you guys might be able to build it?

    Thanks!

    Update for all involved in these points.

    Firstly, many thanks to Rab for a fantastic list of bugs. It really makes it easy for me when I have a concise list to just follow :)

    Right, I'm currently working on 1 and 2.
    Number 3 should be fixed with the latest update (2.6.6).
    4 - good idea.
    5 - certainly, will be in the next release.
    6 - agreed, this will probably be last issue as it could take a while.
    7 - yep and I've done it with the likert results now. Will add in on to all graphs (I think it's a useful feature)
    8 - another longer and possibly less important one, will do after 6.

    I'm going to be working all through today solely on WPSQT so I'll push an update tonight and hopefully I've got through most of these bugs by then.

    UPDATE:
    1 - Providing a full customisation suite is overkill, to avoid the colours looking too similar I've added labels to each pie slice.
    2 - Fixed by removing the title in the chart, unnecessary anyway as the title is just above the chart.

    Ollie.

    Great job Ollie, will update my local install after your release to the Plugin Repository and have a play :)

    Make sure you get 2.7.1 instead of 2.7 which I released last night, there was an issue with the capability checking which is now fixed with version 2.7.1.

    Ollie, sorry to be a dummy but can you explain how Likert scoring works in the plugin?

    I'd like to implement 2.7.1, and I want to run a survey which will score people's Likert answers as 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, but I don't know how to do this.

    If you choose the likert type you can then set the scale to be 5. This will put 5 radio buttons labelled 1-5. The user will select one, and on the total results page you can see a bar graph of all the results for that likert question.

    Not sure what you mean by scoring as there is no sense in scoring surveys.

    Hi,

    I've updated the plugin, however I'm presented with "An upgrade is required for WPSQT. Click here to proceed to upgrade." When pressing the Upgrade button it hangs. It's not an entirely white screen, the menu is there, but the WordPress admin bar is missing for example.

    To try and skip this upgrade I removed the plugin, and removed the database tables and done a fresh install of 2.7.1, however it still asks for an upgrade, which fails.

    This is running on a WordPress Network installation (latest version).

    What does the Upgrade try to do to the database? Perhaps I can carry out the upgrade manually in SQL.

    Cheers,
    Rab

    The upgrade message appears after upgrading to any version of the plugin, however there are no database changes in this version so the upgrade won't be required. If you open up the options table and change the wpsqt_upgrade_required to 0 and wpsqt_old_version to 2.7.1. This should get rid of the notification.

    If this issue occurs when you update to the next release of WPSQT please create a forum thread as its obviously a recurrent problem.

    Cheers.

    Thanks, that works.

    For any searchers with same problem, that's in the wp-blogid-options table. wpsqt_old_version and wpsqt_update_required (not upgrade)

    Having a play around now with the new version!

    I suspect this may be a WordPress Network conflict, but when you delete a result from a Survey, it remains.

    What happens is you press Delete, it refreshes with a new page asking to confirm, I select Yes, then it refreshes with a blank page (not all blank, WordPress menus are there, but the admin bar is gone), like there is some sort of script failure.

    [EDIT] - Should probably make it clear that when you Navigate to Surveys and Single Answers after this white screen, the results are all still there.

    Cheers,
    Rab

    Does at any point it say 'deleting survey'?

  19. Rab

    Nope, doesn't get as far as that I think. It's just deleting results I've tried, didn't try deleting a whole Survey.

    Something which I've manually been editing from version to version is the spacing between the drop down boxes. I edit /pages/site/questions/dropdown.php and add <br /><br /> at the end.

    Of course, this is a personal preference on how it looks with the Arras theme but since it's line breaks being added I suspect it would look similar in others.

    Adding the breaks means the questions are separated better, and not seemingly lumped into one block.

    Maybe not something you want to consider for a release, but thought I should mention just in case :)

    Thanks, will add some spacing.

    Just noticed that deleting doesn't work for the drop down questions, so I'll fix that up now.

    Another, very minor suggestion:

    When adding a Question and you select the Type, the options below should probably just be relevant for your selected Type. Like how you get extra fields at the bottom to enter Multiple Choice Answers where appropriate.

    As it stands, no matter what Type is selected, such as Multiple Choice and Free Text, you're presented with the Likert Scale field - which doesn't apply to all selected Types.

    Perhaps a re-work like this could be done when optionally displaying the Points and Difficulty (original point 6).

    Thanks for your hard work ;)

    Yeah that was the original plan, I just forgot to do it :P Will all be sorted shortly. Pushed another update to github.

    Good stuff.

    I've just created a test survey, here is a screenshot of the end result. This is with the extra line breaks after the drop downs.

    This shows a couple of things,

    1. The multiple choice displayed in a list also shows bullet points. You'll know better than me, but should it have an assigned class and CSS used to hide the bullets?

    2. The Agree and Disagree Likert seems to still display 1-10.

    3. The Likert looks like it needs the same line break treatment as Drop Downs with spacing.

    4. Just a thought, when you have a Next button, is a Back button also possible to fully navigate the Survey? Or will it present a problem with loading the fields with the previously selected answers?

    5. Maybe, the questions should have a user option to set them to either h2, or h3? Since this is a preference, it probably shouldn't be assigned by default to anything.

    Tell me to naff off when you get tired of suggestions ;)

    Cheers,
    Rab
