This would probably make it more complicated, as you would have to sync the wordpress users with every single token table. So with a centralized database for participants, you just have to sync these and then check which surveys each user can take.

Wouldn't be too bad to have something like that. Together with Buddypress, this would give new opportunities.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Yes, I agree, it would be nice. But if I'm correct the "Central Participants Database" feature will be available in LimeSurvey 2.0 so we might have to wait till it is released.

Updated the plugin! Now you can choose whether to list 'Private Surveys' in user dashboard or not!

Wow, that was fast! I guess I'll have to give this plugin a try. So far I haven't seen the need to use it, but it might be a nice feature and open new opportunities.

@magiclko: are you the maintainer of the plugin? If so, where can the updated plugin be found? I had a look at the plugin page (wordpress.org/extend/plugins/surveypress/) and couldn't find an updated version. The last update is from January 9th.

Or is there a process that takes a while until the page on wordpress.org gets updated?

Yes, WP takes some time to update the description and stuff, though the package you download will be latest!

Thanks, magiclko!

I'll have a look at it this week. Gives me a few ideas, especially together with Buddypress.

Thanks for all the great support everyone. I'm stoked by the quick responses I get from the forum here.

Even after the plugin has been updated, my central issue remains. Even if a survey is listed privately, it's URL is technically "public", so anyone with the right address can access it.
Enabling tokens destroys the whole point because even if a user is signed in, they can't take the quiz without a token.

I need to find a way to link the Wordpress users database with the LimeSurvey tokens database, so that LimeSurvey will only allow users from the Wordpress site to access the survey, and record their answers, linking those responses to the WP profile names.

I know PHP somewhat, but could use direction on how to structure this whole contraption...

How do you want to pass the Limesurvey tokens to the user once you have ported them to Limesurvey? Will you port the email as well and then send them an email invitation including their token?
