Hi! Great job!

I don't know if it is the right place for bugs in 2.0 alpha version... Here is what I remarked:

1)installation, step 2: the GPL license is displayed in text format, with html tags (html is not interpreted)

2) After installation, when login as "admin", the screen says "Reloading screen. Please wait." but nothing happens. Probably normal (nothing has to happen), but could be confusing.

3) Unable to import a survey (.lss) exported from LimeSurvey 1.92. I tried several examples, but there is always the same message: Undefined variable sFullFilepath (/var/www/limesurvey2/application/controllers/admin/surveyadmin.php(929)). Long message, if you want me to copy it here, let me know.

I continue my tests :-)

Hello ulysse68,

please use the LimeSurvey bug tracker, bugs.limesurvey.org/ to report bugs/errors. The forum isn't the right place for reporting bugs.

Thank you!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Best regards,

Mmmh... I first tried, but couldn't find the build number. I thought it was because of the new branch. I tried 000000 as the build number, and the bug report was accepted :-\

The build number now is made of the release date, so try something like 120312

Perhaps you can add this note to/into the "Read this before you write here..." threads, some other people also might have trouble finding the build number since 1.92 (or Github).

Sorry, I can't edit that post. But I think we should try to add a note at the Bugtracker?!

That's strange, I can edit the post. I added the information about the build number.

Hopefully not a silly question: We are looking to use the ComfortUpdate when it becomes available to move to 1.92+, but we are currently rocking 1.90+. Will it function correctly even if we skip a release?

Thanks!

Hello c_schmitz. 1.92 looks great and promising. But we need badly a detailed tutorial, step by step, on how to use the Expression Manager, relevance equations, etc. I considered my self a relatively sophisticated user of lime survey. Yet i have not been able to figure out how to use the Expression Manager and the new concepts of relevance, etc. Wiki description is formal and non-operative. We need a hands-on tutorial with many examples of the possible uses of what looks to be a very powerful tool.

Having said that, I can only congratulate you and your team for this wonderful piece of software. My respects.

atevei-

What level of detail are you looking for?

I have created a half dozen new sample surveys, stored in the docs/demosurveys/ (limesurvey2_*.lss and ls2*.lss), which demonstrate the majority of the EM functionality, providing some real-world examples. (This also serves as an integration test suite). There is also the EM button which lets you view the unit test suites for the various components of EM.

Honestly looking for suggestions on how to help users understand. I've been developing surveys using relevance for over a decade, so it's not always easy for me to put myself in the mindset of users for whom these concepts are new.

Dear Mr. White:

My intention was not to put you on the defensive. Please forgive me if it came through that way. I truly admire what you have done.

My motivation was strictly pedagogical. Limesurvey is a tool for the people. Even though it is built by very competent programmers like yourself, it is not built for programmers. It is built for users like me that employ Limesurvey almost daily. If competent users of Limesurvey have problems with the EM and with the implementation of concepts like relevance equations, it should mean something to those that try hard everyday to make Limesurvey an engaging tool. Even Limesurvey's documentation establishes that support in the areas of EM etc., is limited since the engine is in the processes of being fully grasped (or something similar) by the support staff.

Even though there is significant value in the programatic examples you allude to in your communication, what we need is a detailed step by step, very pedagogical, tutorial. It should include illustrations, movies, presentations, examples of real life situations where relevance equations are important, etc. The language should be aimed more at teaching and less to show off programmatic wonders (although there is nothing bad in showing off a good piece of work). I think that we all accept that the EM is sophisticated and wonderful. Now, let's move into learning how to use it so that Limesurvey could truly fulfill the promise that resides in it.

Respectfully,
