[WatuPRO] How To Change The Wording On True / False Questions

WatuPRO has a handy “true/false” question type. Essentially this is just a “single choice” question with pre-defined options – true and false.

If you want to change the words “True” and “False” to something else or to another language you need to use Loco Translate just like you would do when translating the plugin interface.

However this will not change the words of questions already created. For these questions the words True and False are inserted in the database as choices on a single choice question.

To change them you need to install the free SQL executioner plugin. Then you’ll need to run two queries in it. Let’s for example assume you want to change True to the French Oui and False to No. The queries will be (obviously you have to replace “Oui” and “No” with the words you want to use!):

UPDATE $watupro_answer SET answer='Oui' WHERE answer='True' AND question_id IN (SELECT ID FROM $watupro_question WHERE truefalse=1)

Paste the above query and hit “Execute”.

UPDATE $watupro_answer SET answer='No' WHERE answer='False' AND question_id IN (SELECT ID FROM $watupro_question WHERE truefalse=1)

Paste the above query and hit “Execute”.

That’s it.
