Hello,

I have created a question as a semantic differential.

I want to place the option "weiß nicht" on the right side, i. e. outside of the label-set.

I can creat the semantic differential without any problems, but not as shown. In the manual it´s shown how it should look like in the end. I tried with show no answers yes/no in the settings, but there´s no difference. What am I doing wrong?

The question behaves as expected for me in 1.92:

Try this sample survey:

it works... Thanks
I had to change the settings to show no answers = yes, mandatory question = no

but is there a way to change the title "no answer" to another one?

If you want to change it for all surveys, you can change the translation.

If you just want to change it for a specific question, you can add the following script to the source of the question (replace "QQ" with the question ID):
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function(){
		$('#questionQQ table.question thead th:last').text('New Label');
	});
 
</script>

Hello,

we had the same issues with the "answer field" as described above. We also wanted to change it for specific questions and we followed the described procedure.

For the question type "array" it worked perfectly fine. But when we wanted to change it for questions of the type: List (Radio); it didnt show the new label.

Is it possible that we have to change something in the script mentioned above? And if, what would it be?
We have unfortunately no experience with java.

This is the script we used:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

$(document).ready(function(){
$('#questionQQ table.question thead th:last').text('New Label');
});

</script>

Try this:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function(){
		$('#question{QID} label.answertext:last').text('New Label');
	});
</script>

That worked.

Thx a lot for your help!

We have another little problem related to the "no answer" field; perhaps you could help us out again.

When you run the survey, the "no answer"- field is always selected in advance. Is it possible to change this setting? If participants accidently skip a line, the "no answer" field is selected and this would distort our results. Is it possible that none of the possible options are selected?

But when patricipants skip a line, that basically means there is "no answer". Why would that distort your results?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Some of the questions in our survey ask for very sensitive data. Therefore we had to define them as non-mandatory questions. LimeSurvey then automatically creates the "no answer" field.

We know that we could change in the general settings that the button should not be visible in the whole survey at all.
But in some question groups it is required that the participants could choose the no answer option.

Therefore we would like to know if it is possible to eliminate the "no answer" field for a specific question while answering the question is still non-mandatory.


Now to the problem with the distortion of our results:

Because we didnt find a way to eliminate the "no answer"-field we altert the title of it into a statement like "very satisfied". But because LimeSurvey still recognizes this field as the "no answer"-field, it is still highlighted in the beginning when you run the survey. And when participants unintentionally skip a line then now the option "very satisfied" would be reported as their answer and this will distort our results.
