    Need some help on getting a quiz script. (no database)
    I've spent most of today and last night trying to get a working quiz on my website.. so far no good. I say no database, because none that used databases would work. So I'm going to assume my host doesn't like them.

    What I'd like of the quiz:
    -Questions all on one page.
    -Results page shoots back each question, tells if the answer was wrong or right, and gives more detail if it was wrong with a link to a section on the website with more information.

    I'm pretty sure this can be done with PHP? Have found it mentioned, but how to do it is way beyond my current level of PHP knowledge, so I was hoping someone might know of a php quiz that could do this? So far, haven't found one on google that does this or could be modified to do it.

    Also seen javascript mentioned, and I'd like to stick with PHP.. but at the moment, all I care is getting something to work, lol.

    Thanks.

    I've been doing that most of the day, lol. I feel really stupid that I haven't been able to find one. Thought I had one, uploaded it.. didn't work. Another one just gave back the answers given, didn't say if it was right or wrong.

    I think a php quiz would be using lots of if and elses, or something like that?

    Edit:
    May have just found one. Fingers crossed if I can get it working, lol.

    It is very doubtful you'll find one exactly like you want it to be. Just try to get something close and hack it. :-)

    I have actually found some exactly, but they wouldn't work, LOL.

    The one I just found is close enough and I got it working, so that's good. Hopefully I can hack it to how I want it too. I need to get use to this kind of thing though, I figure? Things not working when they should be? I think I needed more to vent too, but this has definitely caused me the most problems so far, LOL.

    For those with the same problem, try checking this out.

    I was using "php quiz script" but without the quotes. I was finding them, just not ones that would work or were close enough, lol. Finally did though, thanks for the links. Should help anyone else with problems too.
