Hi there. I have a quiz set up with multiple choice answers, and we just realised that even though the questions are all mandatory, users could miss questions out. I have just installed the BF validate plugin, but now it is asking the user to check all of the options. Am I missing something?

The quiz is here http://peoplepuzzles.co.uk/profiler-quiz, but I have switched off the plugin for now as the quiz is live.

Many thanks

Hi Sam,
For the mandatory to work, you need to install and publish the BF Validate Plus plugin. I can see that you are using v1.3.0 which should is the correct version.
Regarding the checkbox question type, on the advanced tab you can choose the validation type. For example, if you wanted to force the user to enter exactly two options, you could select "required validate-checkbox2"

The default "required validate-checkbox" should not force all the options to be selected, it should just ensure that at least one option is selected.

Which validation type are you using?

regards

Tim

Hi Tim

I installed the plugin and published it, and checked all the questions have "required validate checkbox" selected - and on the first page of the quiz it is now asking me to complete all the check boxes except questions 1.1 and 1.4, which seem ok. The questions are all set up the same.

Is there a way I can send you a screenshot of the back end?

Thanks

Hi Tim

not as yet - we have just added a line saying users need to fill in all the questions for a complete report! I knew you were at an event so didn't chase you!
