It looks like you have extra line breaks or empty paragraphs in the question texr for question 1. I would need to see the source (a live survey) to know which.

I tried again and now the 1st and 2nd columns are aligned, but not the 2rd. As you can see:

dianas.limequery.com/index.php?sid=57517&newtest=Y&lang=en

This is the source of question 1:

Question 1 <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

\$(document).ready(function() {

// Call the function wit the start and end question positions
sideBySide(1, 3);

function sideBySide(start, end) {

// Add some temporary classes to the target questions
\$('div[id^="question"]').each(function(i){
var qNum = i + 1;
var el = \$(this);
if (qNum >= start && qNum <= end) {
\$(el).addClass('targetQ');
}
});

// Wrap the questions in a div
\$('.targetQ').wrapAll('<div class="targetWrapper" />');
\$('.targetWrapper').after('<div style="clear:both" />');

// Add some classes to the questions in the target wrapper
\$('.targetWrapper .targetQ').addClass('inlineQuestion inlineQuestionSub');
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestionSub:first').removeClass('inlineQuestionSub').addClass('inlineQuestionPrime');

// Remove the text from the secondary questions
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestionSub th.answertext').text('');

// Apply some styles (these are for the default template)
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestion').css({ 'float': 'left' });
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestion col, .targetWrapper .inlineQuestion th.answertext').css({ 'width': 'auto' });
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestion .question-wrapper').css({ 'width': '100%' });
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestion td.answer').css({ 'padding': '0.5em 0' });
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestion td.questiontext').css({ 'text-align': 'center' });

// Center the wrapper div
var wrapperWidth = 0;
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestion').each(function(i){
wrapperWidth = wrapperWidth + \$(this).width();
var padLeft = \$('.answertext:eq(0)', this).width() + 3;
\$('.questiontext', this).css({ 'padding-left':padLeft+'px', 'padding-right':'3px' });
});
\$('.targetWrapper').css({ 'width':wrapperWidth+'px', 'margin': '0 auto' });

// Set the row heights
var wrapperWidth = 0;
\$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestionSub').each(function(i){
\$('tbody[id^="javatbd"]', this).each(function(i){
var ansHeight = \$('.targetWrapper .inlineQuestionPrime th.answertext:eq('+i+')').innerHeight();

if(\$.browser.mozilla) {
\$('th.answertext', this).height(ansHeight-1);
}
else {
\$('th.answertext', this).innerHeight(ansHeight);
}
});
});

// Remove the temporary classes
\$('.targetQ').removeClass('targetQ');
\$('.targetWrapper').removeClass('targetWrapper');
}
});

This workaround is limited to questions of the same type.

If you use different question types you will need to add some custom CSS to control the row heights.

I just have one more question.
Do you if it´s possible to add another option to a text/numeric type question. See in the image attached, please.

Thnaks,

Diana

Hi Tony,

The multiple scale array is working perfectly in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, but it doesn´t work in Mozilla.

There´s anything I can do?

Thanks,

Diana

</script>```

Hey guys,

I'm using limesurvey since a few days and it is fantastic.
Now I had the same issue like the thread starter. I copy the script and it worked to build the questions side by side.

But my problem is that it builds all question in the chapter side by side. But I only want the first and the second question side by side.

Does anyone know how I can change the script code that it only puts the questions side by side that I want? I think it would work with the question id, but I don't know how.

Best regards,
lsorg

\$('div[id^="question"]').each(function(i){

to

\$('#question42,#question43').each(function(i){
If your question number are 42 and 43.

Please read jquery documentation : api.jquery.com/category/selectors/

Hi everyone!

I have the same problem as Newbeedu. The main difference is that I must use selectboxes because the answers list is very long. I tried with Tpartner's script but it doesnt work. Could someone help me?

Thank you and have a nice day!

dagustin, this topic and the workarounds are very old and may not be suitable for recent versions. Please start a new thread explaining exactly what you are trying to do and include screenshots, your LimeSurvey version number and a small sample survey.
