    QuizMaster is built to support all forms of customization and extending. Today we took a step forward to improving audio integration by completing the initial build of a free QuizMaster Extension, QuizMaster Audio. The initial v0.0.1 is available for download at https://github.com/goldhat/quizmaster-audio/releases and we are awaiting approval for WordPress.org plugin listing.

    This free official QuizMaster Extension provides a separate audio file upload for questions, so you can keep your audio separate from the question text. The audio player integrated uses code from the popular plugin Compact Audio Player. It is much smaller than the default WP audio player, and fits much more easily into a constrained layout or mobile screen.

    For developers this extension is the first QuizMaster Extension we’ve built that is not embedded. The other 2 extensions built previously are both embedded into QuizMaster Pro. The build of QuizMaster Audio gave us a chance to make enhancements to the QuizMaster Extension system, and work continues in that direction as we aim to support 3rd-party developers in building any feature they need.

    QuizMaster is also set to release it’s first theme shortly, we’re working on a child theme based on TwentySeventeen which overrides several of the QuizMaster templates and provides a quiz format similar to that found on DuoLingo. The theme is called QuizMaster-2017 and it works nicely with QuizMaster Audio to provide a sort of “verbal hint” to each question, suitable to language learning. The theme would also work well for a range of other quiz types as well, the audio integration is optional.

    What we have coming up soon is a small specialized QuizMaster Extension called QuizMaster Progress Bar. It’s designed to replace, or enhance the existing support for a Question Review Box. It’s going to be more visual than the review box, and with a couple of options for how it shows progress including progress toward a passing grade (rather than just progress through the questions).

    Sorry about the broken links in the post above we’ve publicly published screenshots stored on Google Drive but it seems the links to the images expire.

    Today we embarked on the build of a new QuizMaster Extension, QuizMaster Progress Bar. See QuizMaster Progress Bar at GitHub

    v0.6.5 released today with translation support including updated .pot file. New translation instructions to be added to documentation soon, the process matches that instructed in general WordPress guidelines.

    QuizMaster translation template file (.pot) is located at /languages/quizmaster.pot. Use this file to create a .po/.mo translation set for the target translation language. Naming should begin with the text domain “quizmaster” and be followed by a hyphen (-) and the language code, for example French translation files would be named:

    quizmaster-fr_FR.po
    quizmaster-fr_FR.mo

    These files should be included at /languages in your test site. Once testing is completed, send them to us via a push request at the GitHub repository, or for non-developers, contact us via our website goldhat.ca.
