After renaming the folder name to '_surveypress' I can login normally, but of course, the plugin doesn't work. However, once I was logged in, I switched the folder back to 'surveypress' and after a reload of the page the plugin was available again to make configurations. Now I have to install a copy of Limesurvey to make sure it is running.

But I guess the error message shouldn't block the login to Wordpress. It took me quite a while until I figured out that it was not my PW that was wrong, but that the problem had to do with Limesurvey/Surveypress.

Corrected it! But it's explicitly mentioned,
"Do not set 'debug_mode' to true until database connection error message is gone!" though in your case plugin should have degraded peacefully! Added the fix. Thanks!

Hmm, I have not set debug_mode to true at all. So this can't be the problem. I did a clean an simple install of Wordpress, then Buddypress and Surveypress via de installation function within Wordpress. I didn't switch the debug mode on.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Getting back to the original thread topic...
First of all, thanks magiclko for all the support regarding this setup and your plugin! Your work is very much appreciated. :)

I am much closer now to my goals. Entering the survey ID in the plugin's settings does indeed generate tokens for each current registered user, and this is AWESOME. I was also stoked when I saw the token automatically get submitted when clicking the survey link in a user's dashboard.

My intent is to eventually have a heavily-trafficked, community-driven web presence on my site. So obviously I can't manually generate the tokens every once in a while. It needs to be dynamic, so that the token gets generated in the LS database as soon as a user registers for my site.

Not asking for you to change the plugin any more, but just putting my goals out there in case you or anyone else can help. I'm not sure how much work would be required to make the token generations dynamic...?

That is in my TODO list for now. Adding tokens based on Roles was first step. Adding tokens on user login is second!

@magiclko : Great work ! great idea !, and thanks a lot to bring this plugin to the community.
I use limesurvey for many purpose, and having the opportunity to connect it with BuddyPress gives a lot of possibility.

I am very impatient to see a next version of this plugin, specially the possibility to create a token at user login, or having automatics synchronizations wordpress->Limesurvey OR wordpress<-Limesurvey OR wordpress<->Limesurvey

Some ideas, could be :
- Having a widget or shortcode showing the list of surveys so users doesn't have to go into the dashboard (Hard for a user to handle Wordpress/buddypress, it may be good to keep the dashboard hidden),
- Giving the possibility to choose a value for the "Uses left", 1 may be too little if the user had a crash or need to go back to the survey,
- Harder: it could be interesting to be able for one user, to show value in wordpress (shortcode for exemple, or profile field of buddypress)of one specifics answer in a survey,

But, humm, can we buy you a cafe ? :-)

I think when it comes to connecting Limesurvey and Wordpress, the wish list can grow quite large. In general, having a Limesurvey API which can be called from within Wordpress would be the most flexible long term solution, what do our Wordpress users think?

We are currently running the first Limesurvey fundraiser and such an API is on our list:
A documented XML-RPC Rest API to allow remote control of LimeSurvey from other software to support almost all administration functions and allow integration of LimeSurvey with other systems (like a CMS)

Please help giving Limesurvey a future!

Inserting tokens on login basis feature is almost ready! Just need to test a bit on my machine :) Same goes for uses left thing.

How about you help LimeSurvey grow by contributing to fundraiser ;)

Yes, indeed! With LimeSurvey API ready, many possibilities open up.

Can the LimeSurvey Wordpress plugin be updated to allow users to share both (1) questions or (2) answers within their own profiles in a way, that allows users to correlate which other users across the platform are interested in the same questions and/or resonate with the same answers.

Leading towards being able to do analytics on which users resonate with each other in selected tags/categories of questions and/or answers.

An example of these similar types of Q&A matching in play is Okcupid, among others.

Most importantly, is there hopes of restarting activity for the LimeSurvey Wordpress plugin anytime soon wordpress.org/plugins/surveypress ?

I think surveypress is dead. It hasn't been updated for more than 2 years. I don't see much chance that this will be "revived". magiclko was last time online on this forum 3 years ago. So I would assume that he is not working on this anymore.

What are the chances other developers are interested in taking on this surveypress wordpress / limesurvey plugin via bountysource.com; salt.bountysource.com/ or another avenue?

I guess it depends on what the bounty is, right? But you would need to find a developer who is savy in Wordpress probably more than in Limesurvey (the API could be used I guess, but not an expert).

Yes, think a wordpress dev do it more quickly.

The best : 2 dev : one wordpress expert and one LimeSurvey expert, but more money then ;)
