My survey is currently embedded into my wordpress site, see
ethicalriskappetite.com/scenario-work/ (the survey is called Testing the Waters - exploring business ethics attitudes).
At the moment, I wanted visitors to the website to be able to just click through the survey, even if they don't answer questions. I have removed 'mandatory' on all the questions in the survey. The red star is gone, but when I try to click through the survey, I still get the comment 'you have to click one of the answers before clicking on Next'. I checked whether I need to embed a new link, but could not find anything to that effect either.
Any advice?
thanks
Marianne

What's the URL to the survey?


You probably set a question attribute like "min answers" for a certain question so that at least X options have to be ticked.

Hi Mazi
thanks so much. Here is the URL:
ethicalriskappetite.com/limesurvey/index.php?sid=48292&lang=en

I tried to change global settings (e.g. the 'how many questions for array headings to reappear) but it did not do anything.

will be great to hear what teh solutions could be. thanks.

This has nothing to do with the global settting you were metioning. This is something that you have enabled in the first question. As Mazi mentioned, you probably have set the minimum answer attribute.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:
