    Hello, I've been testing out your latest update 1.4.0 (final) of this application and have run into a problem trying to delete any answers from questions in a multi-correct quiz type. I cannot get this function to work at all. Here is how I finally tested it in the most simple way: Create a new quiz of type: Graded Mode: Multiple Right Answers Added "Test" for Title, and "Test1" for description. Click "Submit Quiz". Click "Manage Questions & Answers". Click "Add the first questions". Enter "Test" for the text of the question". Click "+ Add Answer" and "Save". Click "Delete Answer" and "OK". I get the error: Page Not Found. Error code: 2S136/B The URL it tries to open is (where I removed the first part of the URL) .../index.php?/quizzes/quiz/22-test-2/&do=deleteAnswer&q_id=5&a_id=10&wasConfirmed=1 To be clear I've not been able to delete any answer from a multiple right answer quiz at all. I've tried with multiple correct/incorrect answers, just the correct answer, just an incorrect answer, and even changing an answer from correct to incorrect. I believe the issue is something with the URL it tries to use.

    It would just be so that guests to the site can play a quiz for fun without registering. It would just enable unregistered visitors to play. They would just need to see their quiz score once when the finish the quiz and that's it.

    Would you ever consider making it so Guests can play quizzes? Or is this not really possible with how it's designed? If this would be difficult, I wonder if having a "guest player" quiz account might be a work-around? And to have a feature where this app could let you specify a single Admin-created registered "guest player" account that could ALWAYS replay quizzes?
    This is really a great feature add-on. It creates great-looking marked up messages and handles fonts, alignments, bullets, etc. fairly well. My users really love this plugin. No problem working still on 4.4.x.
  4. Thanks, I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious!
  5. Is there a way for a user to view and download all their posts? If it's not built-in, is there any paid plugin that has been written for this? Or is there a way even for a Moderator or Admin to do this for them?

    I do love your quizzes app and have had a really solid experience with it. It's definitely worth the money! Do you ever plan to add weighted answers / more advanced scoring though? That's the one thing I've really been wishing it has.
    This app allows you to specify which user group(s) [in which Forum(s)] can create an "Event" tied to a particular forum and allow a certain number of people to sign up (with just a single click) for that "Event". People who click to sign up receive an SMS text message through integration with the Twilio SMS-gateway service on the back-end. (Note: these events are not related to the IPS Calendar/event system) A user's phone number must be defined with a pre-existing custom profile field as a telephone number that does need to be pre-populated (i.e. it won't ask you for a number if your profile doesn't have one yet). You have to add the widget to your forum layout. The event can include something like a URL, password, or discount code for use elsewhere. The functionality is very basic at this point, but it definitely works as I describe it. To be clear, it does not do anything more advanced like let you send later (bulk or individual) SMS reminders, nor see who all who signed up for an event (though you can see phone numbers on the Twilio management console side of things). Lastly, it does not use the Twilio API to verify international number formats are in the required E.164 format, but for US/Canadian numbers it does work without difficulty [e.g. the profile field must have "15551234567" not "(555) 123-4567" as neither Twilio nor this App reformats or strips down the phone number]. It also does not support more advance features like accepting input (replies) from users sent an SMS. You can get a Twilio account phone number for $1/month, pre-paid ($20/minimum buy-in), and Twilio DOES let you control whether you want to automatically top-up or not, so that is really, really nice. It only costs a fraction of a penny for each message sent. Twilio also let's you search for words as phone numbers, so that's nice too. Although the functionality is very basic currently (sort of a "usable proof of concept"), it's a great inexpensive option for some minimal one-way SMS event-notification integration into IPS, without needing to write your own custom code (which is the norm for Twilio), plus I'm pretty impressed with Twilio itself as the back-end service provider. Hopefully, if there's enough interest the author will decide to enhance it further down the road! But, even as it is right now it's a great addition to IPS. As the screenshot shows, you get a text message in the form of: "Hello <IPS Username>, You've sign on on event in <Topic Name> at <Date/Time>. Address: . Event code: <the data in the field you define goes here> <IPS Username of event creator> Tested w/ IPS 4.4.4 running version 3.0.1 of this Events System app.

    Embed Streamable

    Hey again, so I did have a chance to test it and I have to apologize as I think the problem was on my end and I think you're all good! I think there may have been some formatting in my Notes App that I was using to copy and paste to/from. The bottom line is that your plugin has no problem embedding pasted links, whether they are plain text or rich text, so long as there is no additional formatting within the URL (like the URL is bolded or some such). This is the same functionality level as the built-in embedding, such as Youtube links. Thanks for jumping on this, even though it turns out it was all my bad!

    Embed Streamable

    Here's the one I uploaded as a test: https://streamable.com/s/ruo04/rojzrk https://streamable.com/ruo04 I tried using both the main URL and the "embedded" link URL it provided and both had the same results.

    I'm on a Mac as well, using Safari and Mojave. So if I do a normal "rich" paste of a URL using CMD+V it doesn't get converted, but if I do a plain-text paste using CMD+OPT+SHIFT+V it does get converted properly. The built-in processor for Youtube URLs in IPS handles this fine (works either way) but your processor I could only get when force-pasting plain text. So for example, take a streamable URL and paste it into the Notes App and press enter. It gets underlined and converted to rich text. Copy and paste that into IPS and it won't work with your processor (for me anyway!) but does if it's a Youtube URL. And although I mention this as a specific test you can try, even copying plain text (like from a Safari URL address bar) still seems to get pasted and presumably IPS is automatically converting into a Rich Text URL causing your processor to fail based on my testing. This testing method (copying, pasting, and recopying from Notes App before) is meant to make sure the text in the URL is in fact rich text. I hope this explanation helps maybe? Anyway, I will test this out again and also try some other browsers. I can also try this on older versions of macOS as well to see if that makes a difference and let you know.
  10. Sure. I'm just trying to provide a consistent and streamlined user experience (including the creation of usage/help tutorials for my site) and hate having to double-up on everything for both styles of interfaces.
  11. I had the same issue after upgrading to 4.4.4 (from 4.3.x). In my case I had to + Add Theme / Easy Mode to create a new updated 4.4.4 theme and used that as my AdminCP default.
  12. Is there an easy way to force all users (including desktop computer browser users) to only have the mobile navigation bar only?
