Maintenance / Pause Mode per Installation / per Survey

Maintenance screen / Pause screen with a HTML Field to add infos.
Perhaps an URL field to redirect to different Limesurvey installation

Levels:
1.) Per Limesurvey installation
2.) Per Survey (when activated, when deactivated)


Would this be helpful? Or is it nonsense? Drop a line. Thanks.

I think quickest solution is to have a 'default text' manager for every page like this.

Then you can set a link in this default page.

I think this is a useful feature. What are the requirements?

1. Having a text field at global settings -> [new] Maintenance mode at which the admin can enter a message which is displayed to all participants on top of the screen.

2. Having a new text field at survey settings -> [new] Enable maintenance mode + Maintenance mode text to enable that for a single survey and enter a message

When closing/expiring a survey the URL of that survey might still be accessed. The chance to display an individual message for the visitor (instead of the common generic message) would be another purpose.

Perhaps others can confirm or add requirements. Looks pretty straight. At least till you start implementing it ;-)

Can be done for SURVEY only, because we already have the beforeSurveyPage event.

Not really difficult, but no time to do this actually. If needed, money contribution are welcome ;).

Limesurvey 2.06 wasn't set to "feature freeze" yet so if there are any volunteers who want to code or sponsor this, please get in touch with us.

I'm really sure it MUST NOT be included in LS core, but can be done with 2.05 Plugin.

LS admin part are really complicated with a lot of option used by few people. This setting must move to Plugin (LS core or official or by another people).

This can be a question type, which allows a pause/stop/url redirection at any position
Over the time the question type can be offering more advanced features (date from until) or detection of browser / IP etc to decide if access is allowed or certain redirection is triggered.

When all questionstypes should be plugins in the next big version of LS it seems a path to go.

Her, we don't want a question type ... why ????

A survey setting : "Pause survey" checkbox
A beforeSurveyPage plugin

IP detection is already done in LS core since a lot f time (survey settings)
I already have a browser detect system plugin. Not stable and need optimisation, but working.

I understand that this could also be a solution to my feature suggestion:

We would like to have a 'maintenance mode' for the whole LS system. This is useful to prevent people from starting to answer surveys shortly before the system administrator wants to do a LS update, i.e.
- no survey can get called
- huge, highly visible message is shown, telling everyone that this system is in maintenance mode and one should try later
- system admin sees a warning if there are still people answering surveys (with number and last action time) ore survey admins are logged in
- survey administrators get a huge message, telling them they should leave the system
- everyone who were using the system (answering surveys) the moment the maintenance mode were established by the system admin also get a message that the system will be locked in x minutes

- There could even be a message informing the users some days ahead of a planned maintenance ...

Sounds like a good idea. Not sure how much development time this costs though. But in general I like this idea.

I wouldn't hold my breath. Too many basic things to fix in Limesurvey (e.g. session handling). Till LS 3.0 there won't be any progress on features. At least on features like this. IMHO LS 2.5 won't be fully compatible with 2.0x templates. Acceptance of LS 2.5 might be lower. I wouldn't be surprised to see a 100% dedication of development resources on LS 3.0 soon.

Except for home page (list survey), i think whole can be done in 2.06 witgh plugin only.
If we accept to have "javascript only" alert.

The first thing I do on a installation is 'showpopups'=>0.
I prefer HTML over alert method. When using alerts modern browser offer a checkbox to prevent showing it again.
When thinking about all devices which might access the page I would vote for plain HTML.
