Social Sharing Addon for WatuPRO

Update: from WatuPRO version 4.6.3 this functionality is embedded in the plugin and you don’t need the social sharing add-on.

We hear you! The old “shareable final screen” feature wasn’t good enough especially for sharing quiz results on Facebook and Twitter.
So here we come with this free social sharing addon:

Download watupro-share plugin

Current version: 0.7
Requires WatuPRO 4.3.4.7 or newer version.

Currently it can generate Facebook and Twitter share buttons.

How To Use It?

Download the plugin from the link above, install from your WordPress Plugins -> Add New -> Upload page, and activate it.

For Facebook Sharing:

1. Go to the new “Social Sharing” page that will appear under your “Watu PRO” menu and set up your Facebook APP Id. If you don’t have any, get one here.

2. Make sure to select “Website” for “App Platform” on your app Settings page:

app-platform

3. Then add your site URL and allow the domain in “App Domains”:

app-site-url

4. Finally, use the shortcode

 
 
to display the sharing button in the “Final Screen” area of the “Add/Edit Quiz” page:

final-screen-share

Pressing the button will use the achieved grade title and grade description to be shared on Facebook. And the link will go back to the quiz page so users who follow will be able to take the quiz.

For Twitter Sharing:

Simply select “Show Tweet button” and fill the rest of the fields as you see fit:

twitter-sharing

About Images In Facebook

If the grade description contains an image, it will also be used when sharing. If there is more than one image, the first one will be used.

If you want to select a specific image from several that are included in the grade description, simply add CSS class watupro-share to it.

Enjoy and let us know your thoughts!

WatuPRO Simple Designer Plugin

This is a small free add-on for our quiz plugin WatuPRO that lets you redesign the way some questions work.

The result is very effective as you can see on this version of our open demo quiz. Instead of selecting radio buttons and checkboxes users will click on the answers directly. And depending on what you select in the settings of the new plugin the correct/incorrect check-mark can be displayed immediately.

Download WatuPRO Simple Designer:

Download version 1.0

Please note this plugin requires that you have WatuPRO. It won’t do anything without it.

How To Use It:

Once installed and activated, a new link will appear under your WatuPRO menu:

simple-designer-in-menu

Click on it and you’ll be taken to the plugin settings page. Choose colors there, define whether the result should be shown immediately (note: means more Ajax requests to your server), and select which quizzes you want this design applied to:

simple-designer

That’s it. Once set up, you’ll see the changes.

Category Tabs

From version 0.7 this plugin adds one more enhancement. For quizzes paginated “one page per question category” you will be able to use nice shortcodes for category tabs. See the “Simple Designer” page in your WatuPRO menu (after installing version 0.7) for more info.

Open Quiz, New Design

This is the same as our main demo quiz but uses the "Simple Designer" free addon to make the questions look different.

We also made it show all questions on one page, removed randomization, add added a start button to illustrate how the same quiz may look with different setup.
