A customer (Dutch workers union FNV Bondgenoten) was not satisfied with the available templates in LimeSurvey, so we designed one for them.

We started with the few question types that they wanted to use in their surveys and later started to diverge.

We are currently at a stage where we want to share this work in progress with the community.

If you are interested, please download the attached template and test it and give us feedback. We will work on this freely downloadable template whenever we have the time for that and when we see the need for our use cases.

The basic template will remain free, we are of course for hire for special needs.

The template as is has at least the following requirements and know shortcomings:
  • only usable for LimeSurvey 2.0 and up
  • not usable in Internet Explorer 8.0 and lower
  • not all questions types have been implemented
  • ... please tell us

We are Tools for Research, a small Dutch organisation that provides support for research oriented organisations. We develop in Drupal, LimeSurvey and some other PHP-based open source platforms.

An example of our work: demo.gewoongoedwerkmeter.nl (sorry in Dutch only), which presents you with a (still LS 1.92 based) survey and a custom made report at the end.

Thanks for sharing your template. Maybe you can outline the biggest problems you faced when creating a Bootstrap version of a Limesurvey template?

Which question types are not supported yet?

Best regards/Beste Grüße,

What has been tested to work:
  • short free text
  • long free text
  • date/time (styling for time not yet done)
  • yes/no
  • gender
  • multiple choice
  • Array (5 point choice)
  • List (dropdown)
  • List (radio)
  • List with comment
  • Array (still missing hover over row)
  • Array by column (still missing hover over column)
  • Multiple numerical input
  • Multiple numerical input (slider)
  • Ranking

Other questions have not been tested yet.

We will come up with a report on what were challenges. Our developers complained a bit about inconsistent coding in Limesurvey sources, they then used javascript to alter placing of classes etc.. The main coders are on holiday now, will be back in three weeks.
