  5. Use built in filter when doing shortcode rather than filtering the content in the shortcode callback.


  1. FIX Single quotes break JSON encode/decoding - hopefully fixed
  2. Added a "translate" button to the survey options panel - if you have changed your site language since creating a survey, you can use this button to translate the static form existing_elements 3.Results display tweaks

  1. FIX - improper escaping/unescaping


  1. FIX - in cases where values are escaped when json encoding - unescape those before json decoding


  1. Duplicate survey functionality was retaining the survey id of the survey that it was duplicated from resulting in less than desirable results. This has been fixed by updating the post content to ensure that the new old survey id is replaced with the new survey id in the form field

  3. Block user interface when adding survey questions
  4. Menu position has more precision in an attempt to avoid clashes

  1. Attempts mitigation of data loss
  2. Updated jQuery ui css


  1. bug fix - survey forms with special characters not properly json_decoded resulting in process response giving a bad request message - dev time 1 hour

v1.6 - La Barqueta

  1. Adds 'view results by user' functionality
  2. German translations added
  3. Whoops...forgot to load textdomain for translations
  4. In an earlier version, I was using a closure or anonymous function - Earlier versions of PHP don't support such nonsense so that didn't work. Added a function which always returned true without the knowledge of some WordPress functions that accomplish this very thing. This has been updated with that.
  5. Lots of work done to improve loading of translations and jQuery validation messages since WordPress now uses a setting for 'WPLANG' and the constant is no longer used.
  6. Front end French translations started


  1. Improved handling of non-English characters in the 'Survey Results' tab.


  1. Bug fix - after re-ordering of questions, the 'edit question' & 'delete question' buttons would act on the wrong question. Thanks wordpress.org user vexweb for pointing this out.
  2. Following form submission the browswer window should scroll back to the top of the form - see this thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/scroll-back-to-top-on-submit

  2. New feature: Clone a survey
  3. New feature: If a survey has no responses, it can be loaded into the survey builder and edited - questions can be added, answers can be added to questions
  4. frontend js/css now gets a version string appended
  5. frontend form is now rendered with the submit button disabled, it is then enabled by the included javascript. This is an attempt to alleviate the 404 errors that some users are experiencing - probably due to the javascript not loading for any number of reasons.

  1. New feature: conditionally edit survey authentication method

  2. Attempts to provide something resembling useful feedback if the survey submission AJAX request fails


  1. Bug fix on frontend output.
  2. Bug fix for bad 'maxlength' validation values on text boxes and textareas.
  3. This bug fix wouldn't have been possible without your bug reports. The users of this plugin ROCK!
