Template Variables

screenshot_01

Quiz and Survey Master uses a template variable system for all the text that you will customize. This system allows you to put a variable in your template and that variable be replaced with the corresponding value when the user takes the quiz. For example, when we write the results page template, we won’t be able to put the points the user has earned because the user hasn’t taken the quiz yet. So, we can put the variable %POINT_SCORE% into the results page. Then, when the user takes the quiz, the plugin will put the total points in place of the variable for you.

For example, in our Twitter Sharing Text template, we might have put “I just scored %CORRECT_SCORE%% on %QUIZ_NAME%!”. So, when the quiz is taken and the user tweets this, it will become something like this: “I just scored 87% on Frank’s Test Quiz!”.

There are lots of variables you can use in your templates. Each template includes a list of variables that work in that template. For example, the Message Displayed Before Quiz template can only have the variables %QUIZ_NAME% and %CURRENT_DATE%. So be sure to check which variables are allowed before you write that masterpiece in the template.

For a complete list of variables and how to use them, keep reading. Or, now that we understand the basics, let’s create our first quiz!
