Looks interesting. I like that you have quizzes available for download.
Are there any other available sites the have more quizzes?

The idea is that there will eventually be a community of people that create and share their quizes, therefore increasing the amount available for others to import onto their site. Obviously this all depends on how well the mod is received.

There was a minor issue with the Import Quiz functionality, I have uploaded an updated package in the mod section. In addition, I have made available an SMF Quiz Category addon to this mod which will install some default categories, along with images. This is available from the SMF Modding site.

The nearest thing it has at the moment is the concept of a "Quiz League". You can create a Quiz League to run for a set duration and allow people to answer questions in it every x days. It will then pick random questions from all the quizes you have installed. Although not exactly what you are asking for it may suffice? If not, please post a request on the SMFModding site.

Thanks

Holy guacamole!!
 
This is a fantastic module and it actually works - congratulations!
 
The only thing missing is when a user adds their own quiz the moderator/administrator must approve it and there is no notice sent.
 
Beyond that small item this is a 5 star module.
 
Thank you for sharing it with us...

I assume you hadn't already played the quiz over the maximum times? This error could also occur if the returned XML is invalid (it retrieves the quiz information and questions that way).

I could look into this further but would need a login to your forum and the quiz you were having problems with.

It should do this, so if it isn't working then it is a bug. Did you get any error in your smf log at the same time?
