QSM Fortune theme is perfect for getting feedback and reviews on your website. The Fortune theme can be installed on sites with QSM Core v8.0.7 or higher.
With multiple types of supported question styles, the ability to add a featured image to each quiz page, unique design elements, etc this quiz theme compels the responders to take immediate action.
Using Horizontal Question Types
Fortune theme is designed to display Horizontal Multiple Choice & Multiple Response Questions types in a much better way. The answer values are displayed beautifully inside the buttons and their corresponding labels just below each button, making your feedback forms look appealing.
Just select Multiple Choice (Horizontal) or Multiple Response (Horizontal) from the Question Type dropdown. Now, add your question, answers, and labels. Points/Correct/Incorrect will be displayed based on the selected grading system that can be changed from the options tab.
Setting up the Progress Bar
We did something unique with the Fortune theme’s progress bar, unlike the usual progress bar Fortune’s progress bar is far more interactive and pleasing. Based on the number of pages you have in your form the progress bar guides you through the progress you’ve done by depicting the current page number out of the total pages.
The progress bar will be enabled by default, but if it’s still not visible you can enable it from Options Tab > Display > Show progress bar and enable the “Show current page number” option too.
Adding Featured Images
QSM plugin by default allows you to add 3 types of featured images
- Global Feature Image – Seen at the beginning of the quiz & is displayed at the very beginning of the quiz in the front end. If you skipped adding a featured image at the initial quiz configuration you can still add it from Style Tab > Featured Image > Set Featured Image.
- Page Level (Theme-Specific) – With the Fortune theme, you can even add individual featured images on all quiz pages, a feature that’s unique to the fortune theme. To add featured images to each quiz page just click the gear icon of the quiz page > ” Select page feature image?” and then set the image. Page Level Featured images will go to the right side of the quiz on the front end.
Effects of Manual Pagination vs Auto Pagination on Featured Images
In QSM auto-pagination (questions per page) is set to 1 and is enabled by default. We recommend you go for Manual Pagination and set the “questions per page” option to 0 by going to Options Tab > Display.
If Auto-pagination is Active, Global Featured Image will be seen only on the first quiz page, however, if you go for manual pagination and set the questions per page to “0”, the global featured image will show on those quiz pages that are missing “Page Level” featured images.
So, it’s recommended to set the Global Featured Image first and then if required set the Page Level Featured Image on your quiz.
You can customize the Fortune theme by navigating to Style Tab > Themes > Fortune > Customize Quiz Theme.

If it doesn’t please make sure to enable “Show progress bar” and ” Show current page number” in the options tab.

- Featured Image on Quiz Pages – If you have set a Featured Image in any of your questions in the Questions Tab, then the featured image will be displayed just above your question. The quiz page featured image can be accessed from the Questions Tab > Edit Page > Select Image.
- Question – The set question from the question tab will be displayed below the featured image, based on the pagination option set in the options tab the questions will be displayed one after the other.
- Answers – Depending on the question type you choose the answers will vary, however in the Fortune theme you will find the multiple choice answers in full-width rounded buttons with radio icons at the extreme left. You can change the hover color from Theme Customization.
- The most unique thing about the fortune theme is that if you’ve chosen horizontal multiple choice/horizontal multiple responses and if you are using quiz system points or both so points will go inside the circle and the answer text will show below the points.
- If you are using a quiz system with correct/incorrect grading then the options(answers) will show normally.
