display one quiz at a time

    How could I randomly start one quiz on page load without giving the option to choose from multiple quizzes. I want to have 4 quizzes but randomly (on page load) server one at a time rather then give the user a choice of 4.  Can that be done?

    p.s. just to clarify - I want to keep the opening scene with the "start quiz" button but eliminate the ability to choose which quiz they get.

    Is that possible?

    The easiest way to do what you want would be to drop several copies of the quizzy folder in your web root each with a different name and only one quiz in the quizzes folder.

    So instead of having

    /quizzy/quizzes/Lots of quizzes.xml

    You'd have


    Where each of the quiz folders contain identical copies of the quizzy files.

    Then when you want to include one of those quizzes on a page, instead of including quizzy/quizzy_header.php in your header and quizzy/quizzy.php in your document where you want the quiz, include quiz1/quizzy_header.php in your header and quiz1/quizzy.php in the document where you want the quiz.

    it's not pretty or efficient but it'll work until I can add such a feature to quizzy (it's already in the tracker)

    Is there a way to do this and bypass the start quiz option? I only have 1 quiz and I'd like it to simply start the quiz when a user lands on the page.

    Unfortunately, I've looked into adding this feature and it was going to be pretty tricky to pull off. You could add your own work-around that would cause the first quiz option to be selected and the quiz to be started automatically by adding the following code the header of the page:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
         // Click to select the first quiz
         // Click the start button

    If you did this, the user would still see the quiz select page but it would quickly scroll off to the left as the quiz starts. Not ideal, I know, but It'll work until that feature is supported by quizzy.
