WordPress Quiz: How To Create Quizzes For Free

September 12, 2019 36 By Bernardo Ryan


Hi, and welcome to our channel! My name is Robert from ThemeIlse.com and in
this video, I’m going to give you a detailed tutorial on how you can create a WordPress
quiz using a free plugin called Quiz Cat. Quiz Cat is free and listed at the WordPress.org
plugin directory. To get started, you can install the plugin
directly from your WordPress dashboard. Make sure to activate it, then you can head
to the new Quiz Cat link in your WordPress dashboard sidebar. When you click on the Quiz Cat link, you’ll
see a prompt asking you to Connect Quiz Cat. This is necessary to get access to all of
the functionality. To do that, just click the button. And that’s all! Nothing else to do. Now that you’re connected, head to Quiz Cat/Add New to create a new quiz. First, give your quiz a title and description. You can also add an image to the description if you’d like. Next up, scroll down the page a tiny bit to
the Questions box. Here, you’ll add all of your questions and
answers. First, enter the question text. You can also add an image as part of the question. Then, enter the Correct answer. If a user chooses this answer, they will get 1 point. After that, you can enter as many Wrong answers as you’d like. To add a new wrong answer, just click the
Add Answer button. Once you’ve finished your first question,
you can repeat the process for as many questions as you’d like your quiz to contain by hitting the Add button. Once you’ve finished up your questions, you
need to add the results your quiz-takers will see at the end of the quiz. As I mentioned, you can add different results
based on how the person answered the quiz. Because each correct answer is worth 1 point, the default results page will cover all possible results. So if you have a quiz with 4 questions, the
default results page covers every score from 0-4 points. You can style it by adding a title, image,
description, and even custom HTML if you’d like. But what if you want to show one results page
to people who answered 3-4 questions correctly, and another to keep who only answered 0-2 questions correctly? No problem! Just click the +Add button to add as many
different results pages as you’d like. You can re-arrange them as needed by dragging
and dropping. Each time you add a new results page, Quiz
Cat will automatically adjust the number of points associated with each results page to divide things up equally. Once you’ve added all of the results pages
that you want, you can preview your quiz by clicking on the Save & Preview button at the bottom. You’ll first see your quiz landing page. And if you want to see the quiz in action,
you can take it yourself to make sure everything works. Once you’re happy with how everything looks, you’re ready to embed your quiz on your live site! To display your quiz on the front-end, all
you need to do is paste the shortcode wherever you want your quiz to appear. To find your shortcode, you can go to Quiz
Cat / All Quizzes. Then, just paste that shortcode into the WordPress
Editor in whichever post or page you want your quiz to display in. When you publish the post or page, your quiz should be live.
