"I always suggest to have a group by group display layout and create a seprate group for each question. This will be extra work but you will get flexiblity to create your question by using more than more lime survey question types."

Excuse 1: I just wanted to decorate the link user "trivender" posted with some screenshots so users directly see how such templates may look like.

Excuse 2: It's my wife's birthday this week and I need some money to buy her new shoes :-)

Hi,
My research group is looking into using templates for mobile devices. Can someone explain how this works if people completing the survey might be using multiple platforms? From our experience, only a small fraction of out respondents complete the survey on a phone or mobile device. If we use the professional mobile device template, how does this affect those using desktop/laptop users?

Related to this -
1. Does the mobile template support all question types and java script modifications to regular templates? (e.g. rosters)

2. Is the mobile template open source and customizable? That is can we do more than add out logo?

Thanks.

You might want to look into "responsive" template designs. They are designed to adapt to the screen size.

Yes... Responsive Web Design is the best option :)

If you want a fully customizable (open source) template, I recommend you to have a look at:
github.com/Shnoulle/skeletonquest

Another responsive templates options based on Bootstrap:
github.com/mofog/BootstrapForLimeSurvey
http://lime.kw-blog.de/?lang=en
Tammo's bootstrap based template

A last one based on Foundation

The solution which worked best for me at several survey projects in the past is to use one main template which works well for common PCs/Laptops and then have another mobile optimized version which scales well on smaller devices such as smartphones.

Here are two examples:
1. Main Template "Janus"
- Test survey: limesurvey-templates.com/ls2Demo/index.p...61/newtest/Y/lang/en
- Available at: www.limesurvey-templates.com/limesurvey-...late-janus-p-53.html

2. Mobile optimized Template "Janus Mobile"
- Test survey: limesurvey-templates.com/ls2Demo/index.p...27/newtest/Y/lang/en
- Available at: www.limesurvey-templates.com/limesurvey-...nus-mobile-p-52.html

Once can then code a browser switch which automatically loads the mobile optimized template if a smartphone (or tablet) is used).
That way you can make special adjustments to the mobile version (e.g. showing a banner at the welcome screen only to save space at question screens) without affecting the main template.

Those templates linked above support all question types and all Limesurvey features. They were tested with the latest version of all major browsers.

Both templates use a placeholder so you can easily add your own logo. You can modify them as needed and use them for different survey projects.

Hello. I have one question about mobile surveys. We already use limesuvey but now we want to research exclusively mobile users. With the mobile template, cam we use the same options as in the 'regular' template, for example, IP tracking, etc. And is there any statistics which shows that the respondents made the survey on mobile device (and resp[ectively on destop) or we must use google analytics or someting like that to track the mobile devices? Thanx.

Using a mobile optimized template you can use all the Limesurvey features.

Tracking the device used is nothing Limesurvey supports by default so using Google Analytics or similar is the best approach.

You could use JavaScript to store the userAgent details in a hidden short-text question.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">		
	$(document).ready(function() {	
 
		// Identify this question
		var thisQuestion = $('#question{QID}');
 
		// Hide this question
		thisQuestion.hide();
 
		// Load userAgent details
		$('input.text', thisQuestion).val(navigator.userAgent);
 
	});
</script>
