New to limeSurvey but well versed in php/mysql. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction of which files/functions control the user tables and login. I'd like to integrate it with our corporate site so there is a seamless transition with no login and users in the corp. website are already in the limeSurvey.

If I knew where to start or if someone has already done this, that would be greeeat.

I have a similar problem.

I think there are 2 options:
  • Use Remote Control, but the API looks incomplete (for instance, no way to get a list of surveys) and it appears to have issues with the latest LimeSurvey version.
  • Directly work with the LimeSurvey database (copy pieces of SQL from the actual source), but this is guaranteed to break in future releases.

Can any one tell us if there are there other options? Is there some PHP I can include and use that (both sites are on the same server)?

Thanks!

Hello,

perhaps another solution would be to embedd/include LimeSurvey into the site using something like an iframe:
<iframe width="80%" name="limesurvey" src="http://localhost/limesurvey/admin.php">

Thanks, the iframe is a good idea. I will try to use this as much as possible, but I think there will be a few things where deeper integration is needed.

Do you want your exisitng users to be able to use the Limesurvey admin backend e.g. become admin users at Limesurvey or do you want them to participate at closed surveys which are using tokens?

The second option: I want to create tokens outside of LimeSurvey, let users answer the survey and also recall their responses.

I've currently ripped out most of the code I needed (mostly from common_functions.php) and re-used it in my own classes. It's not very future proof, but it works.

If any one wants the code, let me know

That's the y way I would have done it, too. simply let an external application write into the according Limesurvey database tables.

I have a similar question -- a client wants to maintain the look and feel (mostly the HTML and CSS for their header, footer and sidebar). Instead of using an iFrame, I'd like to just copy their banner and other code.

Is their documentation for how to customize the Limesurvey UI? A "theme" or "skin" or something like that?

Thx,

Tac

If you are talking about the survey design, have a look at docs.limesurvey.org/The+template+editor&...tions+for+LimeSurvey

The admin section can only be styled by editing the main CSS, there is no template for it.
