THEMA: Create a likert scale but move the "not applicable" option to the right

Create a likert scale but move the "not applicable" option to the right 3 Jahre 9 Monate her #55157

Hi guys,

I would like my participants to rate a statement with five possible answers:

Example: Never - rarely - sometimes - often - always

I used an "array" to create these questions.

However, I want to add another option "not applicable"

Example: Never - rarely - sometimes - often - always - not applicable.

Is it possible to create a greater distance in the questiontable between the first five items and the sixth item, so that participants view "not applicable" as a distinct option?

Example: Never - rarely - sometimes - often - always
not applicable.

You will need to insert blank cells in the table.

Set up your survey to use JavaScript and place the following script in the source of the array question or the group description. Replace "QQ" (line 5) with the array question ID.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
    $(document).ready(function() {
 
		var qID = QQ;
 
		// Reset column widths
		$('#question'+qID+' col').attr('width', 'auto');
 
		// Insert new column
		$('<th class="spacerCell"></th>').insertBefore('#question'+qID+' table.question thead tr th:last');
		$('#question'+qID+' table.question tbody tr').each(function(i) {
			$('td:last', this).addClass('lastCell');
		});
		$('<td class="spacerCell"></td>').insertBefore('.lastCell');
 
 
	});
 
</script>

Then, add the following to the end of template.css to set styles for your new column and the sub-question widths. Replace "QQ" with the array question ID.
#questionQQ .spacerCell {
	background-color: #FFFFFF;
	width: 5px;
}
 
#questionQQ tbody th {
	width: 15%;
}

Thank you very much! I will try it out.

BTW, I receive a lot of 500 errors when I look at the LimeSurvey website.

For instance, this link gives a 500 error as well:

docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=..._etc._in_LimeSurvey_

Error 500!

/tiki-index.php
Internal Server Error!

This link work fine for me: docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=..._etc._in_LimeSurvey_

Though we have updated our wiki software recently and there might be some problems. Please list them all here so we can fix them.

I get the same 500 error over here.

Basically, I cannot access your wiki; but I did a Google search and visited the cached version.

Is there another option without enabling Javascript? For instance, by changing the template?
