Forum Plugin 2.3 Final Released

Geeklog TopicsThe final release of the Forum Plugin version 2.3 is available. This version contains quite a few fixes and support for GL 1.3.9. It is strongly recommended as an upgrade for all current forum plugin users.

I have included themed versions of the templates and CSS in the download package. There are directions to upgrade with upgrade scripts. Details of the changes, bug fixes and new features are documented in the install_doc.

Many thanks to all those that participated in the betas testing and provided feedback.

Thanks again for your patience and support,

glQuiz Plugin -- Serve up online Quizes on your Geeklog site

Geeklog TopicsAnother premuim plugin that I've been working on is glQuiz. It will allow you to setup quizes with any number of multiple choice answers. I've setup a demo for you to look at here if you are logged in.

There are quite a few admin features that include:

  • Define min pass score, number of questions and score per question
  • Questions can be in fixed order or random order
  • Able to have questions randomly pulled from a larger pool of questions
  • Time is tracked and able to setup max time allowed
  • Able to setup a pre-test requirement - linked to another quiz
  • Users can take quiz multiple times, view their best score and previous scores
  • Admin can copy a quiz or quiz question to speed up quiz setup
  • Admin can view all scores and actual question results for any user.
  • Admin can see users quiz run with their selection and correct answer

    Example images of the admin screens are available here: Question Admin Quiz Results

  • Forum 2.3 Release Candidate 3 Available (updated)

    Updated Jan 24,2004

    I have Release Candidate 3 available and hopefully the final testing release before 2.3 is made generally available. The RC3 release archive is hopeully without issues. It contains a few more fixes from RC2 and I have updated the install_doc to explain how to use the custom member fields. Please re-install this version if you have prior RC versions. Any completed language files should not be emailed to me to be included in the final distribution. If there are no major issues, I will be able to release version 2.3 in a week or so.

    Please report any problems or questions in the support forum Here
