I run version 1.92

I was wondering if it is possible to create an array (matrix) type question that has the response options made up of images? I have attached a mock-up of what I would expect the question to look like, with images across the top as column headers and different "categories" as the row headers. Or is it possible to create a labelset that use images? I am open to possibilities.

I thought I had read somewhere that this is possible but I cannot seem to locate any information in the manual or on the web. Maybe I am not using the right search words.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You should be able to put html code instead of normal text in the answer options or in the label set.

Give it a try.

(By the way, no mockup attached)
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

What a great idea. Thank you so much.

The inserted html tag seems to work but do you happen to know where I would need to place the images within the limesurvey environment. I would like to keep all the limesurvey "stuff" together, rather than referencing my images from a different location on the server. Would the images be placed in the same location as the images I use in my templates? Or do you have other suggestions that might be better?

I host my limesurvey system on a linux box that I have administrative access but to be honest it has been a long time since I have spent any time in the back end of limesurvey on the system.

PS the mock up is now attached to the original post (oops).

Just to follow up, in case others are trying to do the same thing.

holch's suggestion worked perfectly. I used html to call the images and to set the size of the images. The question for my survey turned out wonderful.

I uploaded the images using the image upload option in the question editor. This allowed for the storage of the images to be referenced with an association to the specific survey id. The upload even gives you the link you need to include in the html.

Thanks for your feedback. This will help others with the same question in the future (given that they search the forum before asking...)
