The 1.8.x version is a major upgrade. Your quiz and question data will need to be upgraded if you are upgrading HD Quiz from an earlier version. If you have less than 60 questions this will be done automatically in the background. However, if you have more, you will need to use the manual upgrade tool (don’t worry; it’s just a click of a button).

If you have any issues with upgrading to this version, please contact me on my support forum so I can help you. view the HD Quiz plugin page

Upgrading does not modify or delete your old quiz data in any way, so you can also always revert back to a previous version of HD Quiz here (download link is at the bottom of the page).

The plugin can be installed like any other.

  1. Log into WordPress
  2. Select Plugins, then Add New
  3. Select Upload Plugin
  4. Choose the zip file, then Install and activate

Once installed, you will need to create your first quiz by going to HD Quiz, then Quizzes.


Using an image already in my library

WordPress will NOT create the new thumbnail size for images that existed before the installation of HD Quiz, only new ones. This is likely because on larger sites, this would take up vast amounts of server resources.

If you do not wish to simply re-upload any desired image from your library, then I would recommend using the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin (over 1 Million active installs). It will go through and recreate thumbnails for every single image in your library, ensuring that all images in your library can be used with HD Quiz.

With that said, I do, however, have plans to integrate a solution that will work with images uploaded before the installation of HD Quiz.

What’s the difference between WP Pagination and jQuery Pagination? Which should I use?

Unless you are a unique situation, I’d almost always recommend using jQuery Pagination as it provides more control for you and a better experience for your users. WP Pagination should only be used if you are trying to increase your overall page views for ad revenue or something similar.

More information can be found on the HD Quiz About / Options page.

I have a feature request!

Fantastic! I’m one of those coders who loves a good challenge. Please submit your feature request here by using the support tab or leave a request of the official HD Quiz plugin page.

Nice plugin. Simple but effective user interface and easy to use. Only glitch I found was there is no setting to keep users from skipping questions.
