Hello - I am having trouble implementing this is an application (Wordpress, yeah, I know) where there is redirection by the application to simplify the URLs.
I have no problem to create a page on the server with a quiz, browse to the page through the absolute path and run the quiz. It's sweet - But when I put the include commands on a Wordpress template, the quizzy files seem to be not found because all I get is a blank space and in the source code I can see the quizzy and quizzy load divs, but they are empty and, by the way, not the correct sizes dimensions.
I then changed the calls to the script in the header files to a more complete path
When I do that, I get mostly what I want - but I cannot seem to figure out how to set the images folder and I also am puzzled by the PATH which is printed out at the top of the quiz,.
I'm SO close to getting this working - I'd love to figure this out completely.
What version of quizzy are you using?
I think I improved the path stuff a whole bunch with quizzy 2.0 beta 1 which is now available in the downloads sections.
Sorry I'm not too familiar with Word Press but I'd be happy to help you all I can.
Hi - Dowgirl here again, in case someone else finds their way to this page. I was able to use an iframe to include the quiz in a Wordpress sidebar included file - I just put the quiz on a stand alone php page, not on a Wordpress template page. Then that is the page I included with an iframe. Works great this way.
I'm glad you figured it out. Thanks for putting your solution here.
Hi - I had to remove the files from that site - but I really like it so I will be putting it on other sites -- including other Wordpress sites. I'll keep you posted on the file location issue. I am using the latest 2.0 files.
For those having problems with relative paths, here are a few tricks. These are for Quizzy 2 beta 1 with an install on localhost/your_site:
1. Make sure that your main file (the one including Quizzy's php files) has ".php" extension (not html)
2. Put this in your (X)HTML header: <base href="http://localhost/your_site/" / >
3. If Quizzy displays, but no Quizz is listed, comment out lines 268 and 269 in quizzy/quizzy.php :
//if (!preg_match("/.xml$/i", $file))
as they prevent the example quizz "quizzes/tour.xml.example" to be listed.
Then, you should be able to run the demo quizz.
After this are still several with version 2 beta 1.
- The demo quizz only shows radio buttons instead of checkboxes and all radios are flagged with the "correct answer" character after you click some radio button. This is paradoxal.
- The images are not found (at least on a localhost).
Thanks karagiosis for your tips. Just so people know about #3 above, that preg_match is to prevent non-xml files from showing up in the quiz list and (possibly) making something bad happen. The editor I use likes to make backup files called whatever.xml~ that are essentially the same as whatever.xml but just the last version. Without that preg_match there, I was seeing the same quiz listed twice in the quiz selection screen if I didn't remove that backup file.
I'd recommend just renaming quizzes/tour.xml.example to quizzes/tour.xml to enable the tour quiz, that way if you accidentally toss something else in that folder, it won't cause issues down the line.
