Choices showing under the radio/checkboxes in WatuPRO?

Some theme authors create CSS that overwrite standard HTML tags like <label>, <input> etc. Because of this some users see the choices to questions showing on a new line, under the corresponding radio button or checkbox, instead of next to it.

This is not a bug in WatuPRO, it’s poorly written CSS outside of it. WatuPRO does NOT overwrite the behavior of any HTML tags, but your blog theme CSS might be doing it.
So please check your CSS and pay special attention to any lines that show “display:block;” for the “label” or “input” tags.
A Quick Solution:

If you don’t have the resources or knowledge to solve the problem in the CSS, you can try adding the following lines at the bottom of the CSS file:
.quiz-form label {
   display: inline !important;
.quiz-form input[type=’checkbox’] {
   display: inline !important;
.quiz-form input[type=’radio’] {
   display: inline !important;
In most cases this should solve it. If not we can provide a CSS expert for charge as this is not a problem coming from the plugin.

How To Upgrade Watu PRO

Note: If you have purchased WatuPRO less than one year before the time when you want an upgrade, you are eligible to get it for free. Otherwise the price of the upgrade is 40% of the full price.

If your current plugin version is 4.2.2 or newer the only thing you need to do is to deactivate and delete the old plugin, and install the new version. All your data will remain in place.

FTP users can upgrade the plugin by simply replacing the files through FTP.

The below information is OBSOLETE and valid only if your plugin version is older than 4.2.2.

Here is how to process the upgrade without losing your exam data:
0. (Optional) If you have large or sensitive data please do backup your database first. This is always a good idea when upgrading plugins.
1. In your WordPress admin go to Settings, then to Watu PRO Settings. Make sure the checkbox saying “Delete Watu PRO data when uninstalling the plugin.” is NOT checked. See on the picture:
2. Deactivate the plugin.
3. Delete the plugin. WordPress will say “Will also delete its data”. Ignore this text, data will not be lost.
4. Upload the new zip file via Plugins -> Add New -> Upload
5. All done. Your exam and taking data is all there and old exams will keep working as is.
