  1. Hi, I’m facing several problems when I try to submit a survey. I’m getting the following error:
    Not Acceptable
    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /index.php/es/prueba-de-nivel/take/publish could not be found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I tried to add this to the .htaccess file, but it doesn’t work:

    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    Please, I need some help!!
    Thanks in advance.

    • What Version of joomla and inquisitive are you using?
      are you still using joomla 3.1.1 we only support the latest release.

  2. I purchased the 25th october 2014 with my PayPal account (amount $25,00 AUD – payment to but I was not logged into your website so I don’t have yet my download link (its not in my junk or spam folder. I would like to get started, what do I need to do?

    • The link was sent to the email address that your papal account default’s too not your email. Dont worry it happens to many people, i have forwarded download link to your other email account just in case. So you should have it both accounts

  3. Hi, I bought your extension, since it seems to be awesome, but I’m getting the following error when I try to submit a test:

    Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /home/speakenglish/public_html/modules/mod_superfish_menu/mod_superfish_menu.php on line 15

    Could you help me?

    David G.

    • Hi thanks for the feedback.

      From here it looks as if the problem is regarding the sucker fish menu,
      So if you could disable that and try again we could isolate that conflict.

      Did you get an email with the results?

  4. Hello,

    I am interested in purchasing your quiz solution but your online demo is broken. Can you sent me a link to a working example of your quiz extension for Joomla?


    • The demo is working now

      • Released version 2.2.3 – update from the backend

  5. I purchased this morning and have yet to get my download link (its not in my junk or spam folder. I would like to get started, what do I need to do?

    • I have sent you the file direct

  6. I’ve just bought your inquisitive quiz and i have a problem on my site when i trying to make a quiz. It shows me this error when i go on ‘next question’ ?

    • This issue has been resolved, please update from the backend

  7. Hi,

    Finally I could solve the problem. Apparently, the test result was not shown because they were not classified into categories, I did not think it was a requirement to load. Now, I made a category, there I grouped the exams and worked. Now the problem is that the first option given in “Quiz List” menu is just list all the exams, if you take any of there, the result will not be shown, only displayed when looking through the category directly.

    How can I configure the categories created are displayed? or eliminate “uncategorised” .

    Thank you!

  8. Hi, I have now paid with paypal for Inquisitive component for versiona joomal 3, I is not got no link to download it, you can provide thanks.

    • Other people have been receiving the link no problem, i can confirm that it was created for you.

      I have manually sent this too you as well. enjoy!

  9. hello. is it possible to replace radio buttons with graphic buttons (like a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ button)? also, can each answer be given a numerical point value? for example on question 1 a ‘yes’ answer would be 5 points, and a ‘no’ answer would be 0 points? I am purchasing this right now because it looks like it covers about 90% of what I need, but wanted to see what types of customizations could be made to it.

    thank you in advance

    • Hi Robb,

      Radio buttons as graphic buttons can be achieved with html/css styling & js, a template override would do the trick!
      A yes is 1 ‘point’ and a no is 0 ‘points’, but i think i know what your asking me for and it is in the list of things to do. Weighted responses.

  10. Hi,
    I’m interested in purchasing your Quiz extension for Joomla.
    Can you please tell me if this quiz will work for my needs?

    I need a simple questionnaire with results based on the users answer.
    Basically, there will be no right or wrong answer. The quiz takes the answers and provides a result at the end based on what they chose.

    Does this extension support this?
    If so, how will it calculate this, rather than a right and wrong answer?


    • The current version only out puts right or wrong, this request is going to be made available in the future though. Thanks for you question

  11. Hello,

    i have installed inquisitive on joomla. I can add ”create” and ”list” at my menu. But i have a problem with opening my list. I have a explanation here:

    And where can i see the report area?

    yours sincerely,

    • Hi Joey, looks like you need to login as the quiz creator mate, the quiz user doesn’t have privilege to that information on your system,

      hope that helps

  12. When creating questions from the front end, when I click next question, I get the logout button and that’s it.

    • Could you please send me a link to the site mentioned

  13. Hi!
    I really like your extension. I have some questions before buying it.

    -Does it work for joomla 3.x?
    -Does it save the answers, in order to the administrator check them?
    -Is it possible to hide the result? And then the administrator can check the answers and send a customize email.

    Thanks for your time.
    Best Regards.
    David G.

      Yes, not a customize email automatically.

      Yes, you need to have public access to the quiz list

  15. Hello!
    I am looking to replicate the “create a lesson” feature on which allows users to find a video on youtube and create a lesson around it. Creating a lesson gives the creator the ability to add up to 15 questions (quiz style, multiple choice or long answer).
    I thought of using K2 to create the “lesson”, but k2 does not offer anything out of the box that would resemble the questions feature, so I was wondering how hard do you think it would be to integrate your component into K2 ?


    • Hi Sebastian,

      There is actually a dormant feature within inquisitive where you can enter a youtube video link into your question box along with the text, then you may add the answers/options that users respond with as normal.

      I can dig this up in the upcoming version, if you like? however to implement i would require you to have a copy of inquisitive first.
      As for integrating with K2, this would take longer and have not have the demand to do so thus far.


      • Hi Harry,

        Thanks for your reply. So what you are describing would be a youtube video for each question? Would it be possible to create a lesson type casing for the quiz that would only have one youtube video, some content, preferrably the ability to upload attachments as well (documents for download) and then have however many questions the quizmaker selects?

        For us, the questions feature is but one part of the bigger “lesson” setup, so I’m not sure if you’d be willing/able to move towards that with your next update?
        Also, what do you think the timeline of such development would be?
        Purchasing a copy would not be an issue, as long as the software would fit our needs.

        Thanks for your time,

        • Thanks Sebastian for clearing that up. You should be using the Joomla CMS as much as possible to handle documents for download and embedding videos. that way you can create the lesson plan exactly how you like then simply add a button at the end of the subject/article to open the quiz. So you would have:

          Category as the subject
          Article as the lesson
          The Article will have the content to be learned by the student and a link embedded to the quiz.
          It does not make sense for inquisitive to do the job of Joomla.


  16. Hello! Pardon my English, I’m from Ukraine.
    I recently bought “Inquisitive” and try to set it up on my site with joomla. I’m happy with everything, but I have one problem, and in Google not found a solution: a survey mode after the test , there is a message that the “test is passed”, a letter arrives with a link, but the link leads to an empty page of my site, or again on the message that test passed, and not on the test results. What am I doing wrong?
    Joomla! 2.5.19 Stable [Ember] 6-March-2014 14:30 GMT
    Apache/2.2.22 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.22 OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.3.13
    Best regards, Alexey

    • Can you send me the link to your site please?

  17. I have a client who wants to have a quiz on their site, but more along the lines of what HubSpot has done with their Website Grader ( The idea is, rather than a result of “You answered 9 correctly out of 10″ sort of thing, deepending on their answers, the person completing the form/quiz is given a number of recommendations of things they can do or change to better their current score/situation.

    So the result will not be a matter of the number right or wrong, but recommendations on how to improve any areas where they score poorly. Is this possible?

    • I have added this as a requested feature

  18. Hi guys,

    im trying to create a questionnaire/quiz, i need it to have the ability to choose multiple answers to a question and i need the outcome to show in a bar chart,

    can this happen,


    • I have added this as a requested feature, at the moment only quiz creator can see this.

  19. I would love the component to have the capability of generating certificates on completion of course.

    • It’s on the todo list. PDF downloadable certificates, that you can edit the template using jasper reports.

  20. I want to be able to show the user his answer, then add up his answers (each radio button provides a number) and then let the user know the total and what that means (show a range).

  21. When I test a quiz and submit it, I get You don’t have permission to access /component/inquisitive/take/sitquiz/1394124181/index.php

    • It’s in the user guide

  30. looking for a simple and easy quizmaker to evaluate student’s progress

    • This is it

  31. Quiero provar este producto

  32. hello, i just wanted to ask you how do i implement particular quiz into website?

    i made quiz on inquisitive site, but it seems you cannot “call” specific quiz to show up on website..?

    and since our web doesn’t have login function i don’t know how to make quiz there and enable it for people..

    • ok i managed to start making quiz on our site, my mistake to think i can make it here and then just call by ID or something..

      but now there is other problem – when i click “next question” it just accepts as if i clicked SUBMIT.. next question has the following number but it’s totally different quiz…

      by seen it seems it still as bugs so gl in finishing whole app but for now in this small testing it seems it’s still in beta

      • User error

  33. I just downloaded and installed your Inquisitive Component. All I get is a message that says I need to set permissions. Permissions are set for Super User to allowed, and I still cannot see anything…
    Your Documentation could perhaps include a more specific list of setup instructions?
    Maybe if you treat everyone who reads it as if they have never used your extension before, it would make using it easier. I will hold out for a week or so for better documentation, then I will use ARI Quiz Lite. Please, give me an option here.

    Thank you!

    By the way, I DO appreciate that you have done a lot of work to build your extension. I think you have to remember that development needs to be documented well too. I am a very experienced Joomla user, and have made 100’s of sites for myself and my clients. I have never seen this kind of difficulty before. Well, I have, but I have not used the extensions, and most of those developers are gone from the Joomla developer community now…

    I hope you can get this resolved. Perhaps a little video showing setup requirements? If you need help, I’d be glad to help you do any of the documentation. My strong suit is support, and solutions. Let me know…
