Problem with ordering quizzes in Menu quiz list layout

3 weeks 5 days ago #1 by Mary
Hello

It seems that it is not possible to customize in which order the quizzes are displayed in the Quiz list layout menu item. We really need the quizzes to appear in a fixed order, according to the teachings they refer to.

We have 5 quizzes setup, the first 3 showed in proper order, but then quiz 4 and 5 are listed on the top of the first 3. You may check them here (4 and 5 have been unpublished until the problem is solved)

thank you

Hello Dominique and thank you for posting.
By default, the MySQL database returns items ordered by their creation time ascending.
However, in some cases this may not be true, so an ordering option would be useful.

As such, I just released an update for SimpleQuiz, in which you can find a new option in the menu item options to specify the order in which you would like your quizzes to be presented. You may even order them by name, meaning that you can give them a name like:
A.1, A.2, B.1, B.2, etc, according to your grading system.

Let me know if you need any further assistance!
Thanks again.

Wow thank you so much for adding this ordering option! This fix is even better than expected and will be so useful in the future, especially if the quiz collection is extended.

thank you for your great support and prompt reply
