  1. Hello and thank you for this article.

    If you are looking for a super complete alternative, you can try . I used it to create beauty quiz and many more on my free contest and quiz site.

    It is in my opinion one of the best tools for making quizzes that integrate perfectly into wordpress. Best of all, there are hundreds of ready-made quizzes and very detailed analytics.


  2. Thank you for this well done tutorial.
    My question :
    Is it possible to automatically display on a page of your choice (the home page for example) the results of the survey (taking into account all the questions and answers)
    For me, this is to display the satisfaction rate of trainees following training.


  3. Hello,
    Do you know if it is possible to customize the answer?
    By that I mean to add line breaks. bold, color, etc.

    thank you,

    1. Hello Romeo,

      Please just add the shortcode generated when creating your quiz on any page of your blog or WordPress site and it will be displayed.


  4. Thank you for sharing this quiz plugin WATU.
    My question today: Is there a limit of questions? (example a quiz of 100 to 500 questions with a choice of answers and / or true or false)
    Thank you

    1. Hello Afaq

      Unfortunately we haven't tested the plugin until this point, so I'm unable to tell you whether or not this is possible.
