Is there an option that allows guests to take quizzes?

The short answer is no. The link in my signature should let anyone who is a member of this forum download the file. I have logged out of FileFactory and it works when I click on it.

If you mean can it be done from a site member who can use the quiz on another site the answer is no only admin can export quizzes.

I'm surprised the option to allow guests to play hasn't been incorporated. I know they're different mods, but SMF Arcade allowed for this and the recording of scores, which I think increased forum engagement back when I had it.

The question he answered wasn’t the one you asked. His answer related to the download he provided, not whether the quiz mod supports guests.

Thing is, you could always try it to find out...but since it isn’t listed as a feature, I’d suggest it probably isn’t, and guest anything is fragile since you have no way to reliably track anything.

 'Study Force' your comment 'guests to take quizzes' I read as guests being able to download the quizzes rather than play them.

The mod does not allow guests to play the quizzes, there is only one permission in the settings for guests and that's to view the quiz only.

Wow, haven't logged on here for many years and can't believe the mod is still being used and is (to some extent) working. Hope you're enjoying it.

It's a great Mod. It should not be laid to rest and the biggest challenge now is to make this more mobile friendly. My wish and hope is someone can do this.

Just to reiterate my view on this

1. I created this mod a long time ago
2. I didn't have the time to work on it anymore
3. Instead of just deleting the mod code, I was happy for anyone to take it forward with no caveats from me
4. I am not responsible if people want to use this mod and it exposes any security holes or other issues on their site
5. Happy to state this somewhere else if appropriate and make anything else clear if needed

Hope that may clear things up

Thanks

Because it’s not compatible with SMF 2.1

Hi Diego,

Yes, I just did it to show jack001 what happens when you try to install to 2.1.

I installed this on my 2.0.17 forum but had to manually uninstall it because it was on my installed package list. Everything is working fine since I manually uninstalled but I can figure out how to get rid of the "quiz_maintenance" from the Scheduled task menu...

If you don't want it to run just take the tick out the box under 'Enableld' and click on 'Save Changes'

You'd need to remove the task from Scheduled tasks table I think

All please note that Microsoft 'Edge' will not be supporting Flash from the end of the year. I have also read that Chrome and Firefox will be going the same route. Which means that the Quiz will not work on those browsers. Whether other browsers will work I have no idea.

Below is a screenshot of the warning .

These browsers already have Flash disabled by default and after December are removing it entirely. This was known and reported widely in the tech press well over a year ago.

I appreciated that Arantor. I was posting this for when someone who doesn't come here that often or hasn't seen the notifications. They will come here and probably post asking why it's not working.
