CURRENT VERSION: 3.0.1 (download link at viewtopic.php?p=112701#p112701)

CMX Quiz (formerly known as Ultimate Quiz MOD) is a quiz and trivia game for your forum. Users can submit and play quizzes, and pre-determined quiz moderators can set up quizzes with rewards.

The download link is attached to this post. Note that it is still an Alpha release and there might be bugs that I haven't noticed yet! If you find any bugs or have a feature request please let me know.

To install: unzip the attachment, and upload battye/cmxquiz to the ext/ folder of your phpBB 3.3 forum. Then enable the extension from the ACP under the Customise tab.

Here are some of the main features of CMX Quiz:
  • Questions and answers
    • Multiple choice
    • Input an answer
    • True and false
    • More than one correct answer is allowed
  • Supports BBCode
  • Optional time limits
    • The clock counts down in real time so people know how long is remaining
  • One page per question so people can't skip ahead
    • A quiz can be used as an educational pass or fail test
  • A quiz moderator can choose whether a user is moved to a specific user group after successfully passing a quiz
  • Tags (categories)
  • Options configurable from ACP.
    • Choose quiz moderators who can edit quizzes and view results
    • Define minimum posts to play quizzes
    • Minimum and maximum number per quiz settings
    • ... and more!
Some bugs I am currently aware of:
  • It seems creating a quiz with a single question causes the quiz to not load
  • For example, say you are on Question 2 - if you click previous to go to Question 1, and then click next again without changing your answer on Question 1, it seems to be saving your Question 2 answer against Question 1. I think this behaviour only happens when the questions are the same question type.

Hi battye, are you still developing this extension?

It is a magnificent tool and I would like to know if you are going to continue working on it and if there will be updates to a final version, to implement it definitively on my website.

Greetings and thank you very much for your wonderful work.

Hello battye
it's been a long time since I came to see you
I lost the link to your site
I found it in an ext that I installed on my site
a copy of the Quiz mod
I translated it into French (my language)
modify a bit of its visual and add language line.
my members love it

I had to propose things on the site where I found this ext
but they did not appreciate my coming and they deleted my account and blocked my IP
I don't understand why they do this

if you wish to have my archive, I will be happy to provide it to you

It's great to hear from you again xpmen! I'm glad you found the link to return to CricketMX :)

Is it the new version of the Mod you are using? The v3 which I released in 2022?

I would love to have the French translation, thank you :)
