Ok I realized I also need another tweak

in another question with 13 answers i need to keep the first two answers and the last answer static and also retain the 'other' option at the very end.

I edited the code just by adding another couple of lines see attached which sort of worked however I'm not sure how to make 'other' option show up last.

any suggestions?

Try this to place the "Other" at the end of the list:
$( 'input#answer' + sID + 'X' + gID + 'X' + qID + 'othercbox' ).parent().appendTo($( '#question' + qID + ' td.answer ul' ));

All of these tips are proving very helpful - thanks!

I've been unsuccessfully trying to create a randomisation for a list of 10 attributes with option 10 being a "none of the above" option. In addition to these 10 attributes I also want to include an other option.

I am trying to set up the order of the list so that the first 9 attributes are randomised, then the Other option is displayed, then None at the bottom.

At the moment I can get the randomisation working, but I can;t seem to get the None to lock at the bottom.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Just replace this line in the code posted above - replacing the bit were it calls the first answer only and make sure the other option is activated should work

// Place answer no 10 last below 'other'
$('input#answer' + sID + 'X' + gID + 'X' + qID + 10 + '' ).parent().appendTo($( '#question' + qID + ' td.answer ul' ));

Dear Tony:

I need the same for the Ranking question type.

Is that possible?
I tried this same code, but does not work.

Thank you very much ! Regards ! Ariel

Ariel, this thread is getting a little convoluted. Do you want to randomize all choices except except the last one or all except the first one.

I think the easiest way to achieve that would be to...

1) Append the answer code of the last item with "_l"


2) In the ranking question, set "Random answer order" to "Yes"


3) Add the following script to the source of the ranking question. Replace "QQ" with the ranking question ID .
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		var qID = QQ;
 
		$('#question'+qID+' .rank.label select').append($('#question'+qID+' .rank.label option[value$="_l"]'));
	});
 
</script>
