I'm trying to add options to a multichoice question and when I enter a code for the option and the answer, nothing happens after I click save changes or add a new option....anyone help?

Hmmm, it is very difficult to help with so little information. It could be anything:

- you are doing something wrong...
- there is something wrong with the server
- there is something wrong with your LS installation
- etc.

So, it would be good to provide as much information as you can.

Is the survey active / inactive?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Check it out? I also imported a question and got 3 multiple choice options but for some reason I cannot edit the options to what I want. When I click save changes it goes back to the default responses from the import.

Well, in order to do that I would have to login. So this is not really working. ;-)

0. Which Limesurvey version do you use?

1. Please switch on debug mode by adding the following line to your config.php file:
$debug = '1';

Are there any additional errors reported on top of the page?

2. Does the problem only occur when trying to add answers for a multiple choice question?

I believe it only happens when I try to add answer options to any type of question.

I have tested it, and really, it is not possible to add any item. I was able to add questions, but I couldn't add answer items.

By the way: because I thought it might be a problem with the admin password being still the default I changed it to "admin".

It is really weird. You can create new questions, but you can't create answer options.

Did you try a reinstall already?

Are the permissions for the database set correctly?
