Too restrictive
By , for WP 4.1

You can't do anything with the free version.
Uninstalled after 30 seconds.

Not really cool at all
By , for WP 4.0

Not much we can use in free so not sure what extended version will have.

Non starter - DOES NOT WORK
By , for WP 3.9.2

Straight out of the box, the example setup exposes one question. When radio button is selected to choose an answer, nothing happens. "Back" button in first question is bizarre. "Next" does not lead to next question, it leads to "javascript:void(0).

Nice concept, but simply version I downloaded simply did not work.

Too limited
By ,

Just checked the version and any extra feature needs the pro-version. How can you really test if everything is limited. Dont bother in downloading.

The price is hidden

I have not tested this plugin seriously, because the fact that I had to go to Paypal to find out that the premium version cost 50 bucks has turned me off.

Could be a 4 or 5 with some simple updates
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is well coded and has a clean and simple interface.

The reason why I rank it as a 1 out of 5 is because, despite the name, it is a quiz tool not a survey tool. As you enter questions you give a point value to each answer then as the user submits their answers they are given a final score and can be directed to different pages based on their score. This is perfect if you are quizzing.

If, however, you want to survey users this plug-in falls short because you cannot export the user responses. The export that comes with the $50 expanded version just gets you high level details like when the quiz was taken, what their score was, and where they were re-directed to.


This is kinda important for the purposes of a survey. Unfortunately, this shortcoming does not become apparent until after you've paid your $50.

I would change my ranking from a 1 to a 4 if a second export was added so that the specific user response data could be obtained.

I would then change my ranking to a 5 if a couple of other enhancements were added:
1 - Allow an option for the user to enter an "other" answer
2 - Add a ranking question type. E.G. "Put the following items in order of preference."

Summary: If your intent is to conduct surveys, then "WordPress Simple SURVEY" is <u>not</u> the plug-in you want. Instead I would refer you to Google forms. If you wanted a WordPress plugin that keeps the data internal to your local database then I would refer you to "Quiz Master Next" by Frank Corso. This plugin is FREE and while it is also a quiz tool and has some of the same issues, the author is responsive and already committed to added an export of specific user responses.

Doesn't work with GZIP enabled
By , for WP 3.8.1

Normal hosts have mod_deflate enabled. This plugin will NOT work with GZIP / mod_deflate enabled.

By , for WP 3.8.1

В конечной форме 2 поля ввести нельзя. Точнее можно, но не видно, что вводишь. Задумка хорошая, но реализация не очень.

a single quiz?!?!
By , for WP 3.7.1

Downloaded this and found out AFTER that it only allows you to create a SINGLE survey/quiz. No where did here it state it didn't support multiple surveys. The extended version states it allows for multiple quizzes but you must go to their product page to see it. Very disappointed. DO NOT WANT.

Over promotion of pro version
By , for WP 3.5

I tested on a local install of WP, all seamed to work as expected.
Live install returned a fatal error, due to the use of constant: PLUGINDIR
which somehow had been set to wp-content/plugins (perhaps by other plugin) but is other-content/plugins.
I fixed this easy enough to be able to install the plugin.
All seamed to work as expected.
When selecting an option or function of this plugin, one to many suggested that I would need the pro version to use that function.
If there is no way to access the data, except via pro version then don't include the option.
You can only have one quiz with this plugin. - one star
