... Extra Options ...
You may also change several other things in NueQuiz to spice things up. If you open up quiz.cgi you will notice several variables on top of the script.
Most are described in the quiz and are pretty simple to understand. However the @list, and $spacer variables are a little different.
@list is simple an array or list of values that correspond to each answer in a question, you may change these to anything you like as long as it is only 1 character long.
- eg. @list = ('1','2','3','4','5','6'); is a valid list.
- eg. @list = ('a1','a2','a3','a4','a5','a6'); is not a valid list.
The $spacer is basically a delimiter or pipe for the database, by default it is set to | . This does not affect the way the quiz is displayed at all, it is simply for purposes of customization of the quiz. Make sure however that if you change the spacer variable in edit.cgi you also change it in quiz.cgi and vice-versa.
... Common Problems ...
- If you get a fatal error saying you have not used a valid way to access this program, that means your $editurl variable is incorrect, make sure it is the exact location of your edit.cgi file with no trailing slashes.
- If your quiz does not look right, some question(s) do not display the proper information or are missing information you put in, try to manually look at the database file by opening it in a text editor, and look for any signs of inconsistency. NOTE: This problem is very rare. You can change or totally remove the line that is inconsistent with the others. If you know what you are an advanced user you can try to fix the problem manually.
... Accessing the Quiz ...
You can access the quiz by typing in the location of your cgi-bin directory, then the name of the quiz file (quiz.cgi) then the type of quiz (beginner, novice, expert)
- eg. www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/quiz.cgi?expert
This will display the first question of the expert quiz, you can access beginner and novice the same way.
