Checksum + Formatting Question

Checksum + Formatting Question was created by Deborah
I just updated the quiz component and received this Caution comment: "No checksum found on the update server." Does anyone know what that means? The quiz still works as intended. The formatting question has to do with Joomla 4 backend. As soon as I open the backend, regardless of having been on the dashboard when closing out previously, it defaults to the first question I ever answered. How do I change it to not open as soon as I go on the backend? Thanks for your help.

Hello Deborah and thank you for posting!

I have just updated the Extension Updater extension which serves the rest of my extensions, and now it includes the checksum, for increased security.

As for the other issue, are you maybe visiting your back-end using a URL that includes SimpleQuiz?
Sometimes the browser saves such URLs, like yoursite.com/administrator/index.php?option=com_simplequiz&view=question&id=15.
Instead, you should visit yoursite.com/administrator.
Let me know if I didn't understand correctly.

Thanks again.

As long as this has been an issue on the backend, never checked the actual address! You were correct, I only see the first part, i.e., admin.... and did not realize it was actually going to a particular quiz! That's resolved and thanks for bringing that to my attention! I will let you know next time I update if I still get the "checksum" message.
