vBQuiz 1.0

NOTE: all functionality-impairing bugs have been fixed. The attached files should work well on just about any PHP installation.

What's it do?
It allows you to setup a quiz center on your boards quickly and easily. This quiz center is FULLY templated, integrated with vBulletin, and has an advanced Admin script for managing the quizzes, categories, and questions. Here's an example: Movie Forums - Quizzes

A few of its features...
  • Tracks all results and displays high scores.
  • Upon completion, users are given a total quiz breakdown of the quiz, showing them how they fared on each question, and, on the ones they missed, showing them the correct answer.
  • Upon completion, users are shown a graphical bar representing their score, and a graphical bar representing the average score for the quiz. They are also emailed their information.
  • Main quiz page calculates and displays the easiest and most difficult quizzes automatically.
  • Quizzes can be split up into categories.
  • Quizzes can be approved or disapproved easily to add/remove them from public view/use.
  • Full integration with the Who's Online? page...IE: "Viewing Quizzes" or "Viewing So and So Quiz" and even "Taking So and So Quiz"
Admin Abilities:
  • Disallow multiple quiz takings.
  • Toggle to disinclude quiz results coming from the author of the quiz.
  • Change the display order of the answers to each question.
  • Add multiple questions and answers at once (no limit).
Here are some screenshots:That's it! Don't forget, however, to read ALL of the instructions.txt file in the enclosed file. It'll help guard against some common bugs.

Files Enclosed (in
- instructions.txt (read it!)
- quiz.php (upload to main forum dir)
- admin_quiz.php (upload to admin dir)
- install_quiz.php (upload to admin dir and then run)


Also: a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE thanks to GamerForums for beta testing this hack for me. His help was completely invaluable and surely saved me a lot of work in the long run. Thanks!

How can I incorporate html into the quiz questions? When you add html to the questions, it works when viewing it in the admin cp, but not in the actual quiz itself. Any ideas?

I already tried adding start and end php tags before and after the html I wanted to use, but that didn't work.

Hmm.. I'm running 2.3.4 in a test environment (localhost). The hack installed perfect it seems. However, when I try to take the quiz it's taking me to http://localhost/quiz.php?quizid=1&taking=1. If I try to go to http://localhost/forums/quiz.php?quizid=1&taking=1 it just returns back to the "Take this Quiz" menu. The quiz.php is physically located in http://localhost/forums/quiz.php. So, somehow the script is trying to access a wrong page and getting a 404 of course.

My test forums work fine and all paths are set correctly in vb config files.

Is there a place in the quiz.php that's making this look at a different directory?
