    • This is covered on the support ‘how do I..’ Page

  14. Does this component store information of those who has taken the quiz?

    For example, user123 took the quiz, the results and answers are stored in a table somewhere in sql?

  15. Hi,

    I have a database of 200 questions which will randomly generate 30 questions for the user. Is it possible?
    And bottom at ‘Quiz list user has read access’ in Support image don’t work /broken image. I don’t know how to set permission in administration to activate quiz

    • Click the options button to get permissions menu up.

      Trying to raise $300 to continue working on inquisitive

  16. Very confusing website, how many times do I have to click “download” for it to take me to page to actually “download”? Too many circles to get to that point. Please make your site simpler to use. Product has great potential.

    • Glad you like the product, you must register so I know who has what version. Should be one click after register?

  17. I need to know if you have a version for my Joomla 1.5.27 site?
    Thank you.

    • No sir.

  18. Testes de funcionalidade, caso seja viável poderei instalar em um site que está em construção.

  19. hy
    I’ve istalled insquisitive module but when I Click the Button inquisitive in the your section: nothing happens

    • Nothing happens in the back end except setup. Have you followed the installation steps?

      Config is handled on the front end.

  20. good component

  21. Hi,
    My wife is a math instructor and I was wondering if your system can be connected to mathjax so that she can create complex formulas?

    • It’s just a text box

  22. Can you create a customised survey tool to include different types of questions?

    • By default there are three types, you can see this by “create quiz” on the demo page

  23. Hi,

    I am developing a site and was hoping to use your component. Just wondering if there was an import/export function to allow for building of quiz in a test environment then easy deployment to live site?



    • Yeah sure, just use phpmyadmin. By exporting/importing sql straight from the DB! All you need to know is which tables. These are labeled _quiz_ eg:

      where #_ is the prefix to your db.

      • Fantastic, thanks! Will be putting through purchase soon :)

        • Good to see another aussie getting stuck into it

    • Another quick question – is there a way to generate a quiz of say 10 questions from a larger pool of say 100 questions? So that each student can potentially receive a different quiz (prevents collusion)?

      • Sorry no such feature exists.

  24. Installed software last week on site. Have created a Co-op Choice quiz. See bottom RH on site front page. if you click on Co-op Choice it6 takes you to the quiz but the questions are not visible.

    • Hi David,

      Yes i can see that you have linked a menu item to the ‘inquisitive list’, however you will need to make an external menu link to the survey.

      Copy the link from the survey name(in the quiz list) and paste into the external link box within joomla menu.

  25. We have 39 Likert-scale questions, i.e., each with 5 answers as follows:

    Agree|Somewhat Agree|Neutral|Somewhat Disagree|Disagree

    Must show 5 possible answers for each question. (e.g., radio buttons)

    Need to score them as 4|3|2|1|0

    Can we accomplish this?


    Must enable user to re-take survey monthly.

    Must tally score each month and display a trend chart showing progress over time, ongoing.

    Can we accomplish this?

    • No

  26. Good afternoon,

    Can I submit a photo (see my website) with a question? I want to create a picture quiz and use this on my site.

    Regards, Maarten

    • Pending funding

  27. Hello,

    Could you send me a trial version to implement in our system to test, whether it will work with our toxid curl system (we have joomla as content management system for an oxid esales system and another survey module i tested, could not handle this..


    • G’day Oliver,

      What was the problem with the other survey? Error codes?

      There is no trial version, at $28 you get to use the component while i get to continue working. win – win?
      The next version 2.0.3 due today or tomorrow has reporting to show what kind of impact your quiz/survey has had.
      This will be updated through joomla as normal for existing 2.x.x users.


  28. Hello,

    I’m looking for a Joomla module / component to build a quest.
    Important is that I can put questions in it with only one possible answer. Do you have such a solution?

  29. Dear,

    I am looking for a survey component for Joomla! that will allow me to show to the users which users answered which questions (so not just stats, actual usernames, preferably with possibility to link to their communitybuilder profile)?

    I am not sure if this feature is included in Inquisitive, could you please let me know?

    Thanks a lot in advance!


    • Hello Wouter,
      The completed survey will be sent to the survey creator, it includes basic user details like email and name. I could expand on this if you need. Is this what you want?

  30. I decided to buy and try this one. So far I got a little bit confusing, since after installing it I got no admin or anyway to go, nor documentation. I am still working around with this module, but I don´t know where to start from to make a simple 6 question quiz. In fact, that´s all I need so far.

  31. Dear Support,

    I would like to use this software to teach students of different classes,
    some are primary level, some are secondary level, so just want
    to know whether this software can show primary-level quiz only for primary
    students and the primary-level students cannot see secondary-level quiz etc.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.


    • Hello Eric,

      You can.

      What needs to be done is that the quiz list menu item will be set to administrator privileges so that neither primary or secondary can see this.
      Then you need to copy each link to the quiz to a ‘custom html’ module position that is only visible for the desired class.

      I like this feature and will add it to inquisitive. Currently There are no group permissions for quizzes as yet, although this can be done easily.
      The only problem with that is i am currently creating a new version for joomla 3 and this is taking some time.


  32. Hi,

    Can I get a screenshot of the backend? Does it show question statistics?

    Kind regards,


    • Wait,.. Do you mean like graphs?

  33. I would like to now if can I use this component to create surveys, and I want to receive an email notification with the personal data (name, email, phone, etc) only with person who answern the correct qutiins in surveys, with this component that is possible?

    • That sounds pretty specific, i get it, i like it. but no

      • Jesus, if you didnt find an alternative i can now concentrate on this if you like?

  34. the tool does only save the first answer and I have an error : ( ! ) Notice: Undefined property: InquisitiveViewTake::$action in C:\wamp\www\components\com_inquisitive\views\take\tmpl\default.php on line 42 Call Stack #TimeMemoryFunctionLocation 10.0007384248{main}( )..\index.php:0 20.199910060624JSite->dispatch( )..\index.php:42 30.202810063256JComponentHelper::renderComponent( )..\application.php:197 40.205610069496JComponentHelper::executeComponent( )..\helper.php:351 50.206310118904require_once( ‘C:\wamp\www\components\com_inquisitive\inquisitive.php’ )..\helper.php:383 60.223210481424JController->execute( )..\inquisitive.php:29 70.223210481472InquisitiveControllerTake->sitQuiz( )..\controller.php:761 80.246010673200JController->display( )..\take.php:50 90.274110838256InquisitiveViewTake->display( )..\controller.php:722 100.278410843912JView->display( )..\view.html.php:60 110.278410843912JView->loadTemplate( )..\view.php:205 120.296410920472include( ‘C:\wamp\www\components\com_inquisitive\views\take\tmpl\default.php’ )..\view.php:649 ” onsubmit=”return validate_form(this)”>

    Can you help?

    • jQuery is used to assist storing data. I am unable to reproduce the error on a fresh install.

      I have emailed you.

  37. Hello,

    Thanks for creating this extension, and thank you for making it non-commercial.

    I have 2 irregularities to report.

    When creating questions the “next question” button seems to have a hover problem which causes is to move back and forth between its intended position and beside the submit button.

    Another issue I have encountered is after creating a quiz, the questions and possible answers are not visible, nor even in the HTML for that matter.

    I am using Joomla 2.5.9, and PHP 5.2.17, and have tested on IE9 and FF19


    • Hello Django, Thanks for feedback its much welcomed.

      1. The “next question” buttons are moving because of a border on hover, this is a template issue and will be resolved in the next release. This will be pushed to your joomla control panel for auto update.

      2. This is because you have either not published the quiz from the “quiz list” as a quiz creator, or have not set the persmissions in the ACL. See install steps to further trouble shoot. Hope this helps, let me know ok?


  38. Very interesting extension, with much potential.

  39. Quero testar a extensão para pesquisas.

    • Does the demo not help you check for polls?

  40. I just installad inquisitive. When I click in components-inquisitive I only see a box asking me “Append link with anchor. eg #body:”. Normally, we can see the component options.
    Thanks in advance

  41. It is a very good component for joomla. But I am sorry to say that there is no option to see the result or correct answers. That’s why it is useless.

    • Thanks for the feedback,
      yes you are right if using a survey that you want to show your answers to the users.

      What if you wanted to create a quiz to a class of people and to prevent cheating the answers needed to be muted.

      Well on the features request list i will be pushing to have a quiz/survey mode so that you can define whether to show answer or not at the end of the quiz.

      Stay tuned for next version.

      • Hi,
        It is actually very nice things. Would you please make a component that after submitting the answers he will be able to view the the wrong answers as well as correct answers so that he can learn something from this.

        • ok this is the next feature to be implemented.

        • Have updated the component to include survey or quiz mode, check release 1.3.2 or above

  42. good

  43. estadistica

  44. Very Nice!
