Hi, quick question:

what is the most likely reason for questions not occurring in the right order?

I have no conditions set (did have earlier but they didn't work correctly so I removed them).

Im not keen on publishing the questions since its for my work. I'm trying to convince them that we could manage our surveys ourselfs but right now it's not going to well... :s

Sincerely
Adam

Update, I exported the survey and then imported it and then magically it ordered the questions in the right order! :)

But I would still appreciate some suggestions on why the questions didnt order properly when testing the survey.

Peace
Adam

This is very hard to say. I have actually not heard of a similar problem before. It was either a bug of one of the versions or a problem with your installation.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

I remember having heard of similar problems before, but that was connected to a quite old version of Limesurvey so it should already be fixed.
Which version do you use?

If you are somehow able to reproduce the problem, please open a ticket at our Bugtracker.

Thanks, if so please open a ticket at the Bugtracker and...
  1. Give as much information as possible
  2. Attach your survey. You can mark your ticket "private" so that only the developers will be able to take a look at it.
  3. Provide step-by-step instructions how to reproduce the problem.
  4. If possible/helpful please provide screenshots

Afterwards please post the link to the Bugtracker so we can follow the progress.

Thanks!

I also have the same problem. adishardis solution also worked for me. I'm not sure what I did. The imported survey looks exactly the same in the database.

Did the question appear in wrong order within the survey or at the admin backend?

When I put the questions in the correct order in the backend the questions shows up different in the survey.

1, 2, 3 in backend becomes 3, 1, 2 in the survey
2, 1, 3 in backend becomes 2, 3, 1 in the survey
3, 2, 1 in backend becomes 1, 2 in the survey (3 does not show!)

Do you use any kind of randomization within the survey (self coded or the integrated randomization group?)?

If you have a test survey which we can import to reproduce the problem (or a DB dump), please open a ticket at the Bugtracker and...
  1. Give as much information as possible
  2. Attach your survey. You can mark your ticket "private" so that only the developers will be able to take a look at it.
  3. Provide step-by-step instructions how to reproduce the problem.
  4. If possible/helpful please provide screenshots

Afterwards please post the link to the Bugtracker so we can follow the progress.

Thanks!

It says everything meets consistency standards. There are some old tables that can be deleted but that's all.
