TOPIC: Method to ADD a new Question Type

Method to ADD a new Question Type 1 year 1 month ago #97950

I was reading the manual and i have a doubt

If i would like to add a new question type could i follow this methodology?

manual.limesurvey.org/LimeSurvey_2.0_how..._a_new_question_type

Because i'm testing LimeSurvey on a Local Machine before installing in an Enterprise Server and I want to know how to manipulate question types(adding deleting and modifying).

On top of the page is written:
"(:exclaim:) The information on this page is out of date (2013-03-05)"

This is a left over from a previous attempt for LS 2.0 which was supposed to be a complete rewrite. This attempt was dropped because of the lack of resources.

I think the possibility to add own question types is planned for LS 2.1, which will be started after 2.05 has been officially released. So this will take a while.

What type of question do you need? Because maybe it is possible to do this with a workaround.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Oh, it's okey. I don't really need a question type now. I was translating the manual. And i saw that document but i haven't installed LimeSurvey in a server yet, im working with LimeSurvey in a Local Machine and i didnt know if the setup or location of folders and files was the same than in LimeSurvey installed on a WebServer.

But it's OK. I'll wait for 2.1 Version.

Newbie with this program. Sorry and Thank YOU!

The installation of Limesurvey locally and on the server should always be the same. Actually to run Limesurvey on your local machine you basically have to create the same environment as on your server (webserver, database server, etc.).
