Hello all-

I am trying to have a question countdown for 15 minutes on a huge free text question type. The timer is not appearing.

Here are the settings I am using:

Time limit: 900
Time limit action: Warn and move on
Time limit disable next: Yes
Time limit disable prev: Yes
1st time limit warning message timer: 195
1st time limit warning message: There are three minutes left.
2nd time limit warning message timer: 15

Can anyone help me with this? I am pretty technologically incompetent.

Hmm...that may be a bug...

Try adding the following to the <head> element of your startpage.pstpl or the source of the question:
<script src="scripts/coookies.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Can you post a link to a demo survey?

Can you attach the survey question here for testing?

Like I said, I am technologically behind. Attached is the survey question (if I did it right)

Try importing this question. I have added the script that loads coookies.js to the source of the huge free text question and the timer works for me.

Another note: you should avoid pasting directly from MS Word. It adds all sorts of junk to the question source.

Tony, do you think this is a bug at the official release? If so, can you fix and commit it?
