Hallo
is there any way to default select a question type in the "Question Types list" for every new question in a survey?
We are going to register hundreds of questions, all of the same type (List - radio)

Thanks in advance

As far as I know this is not possible. But a way to do this is copying the question XXX times, so that you only have to change the name and the text of the question.

Hi,

in the file: application/controllers/admin/question.php
(admin/questionhandling.php for older versions)

search (around line 765) :
$eqrow['type'] = 'T';
and change for
$eqrow['type'] = 'L';
