TIP: What Are Shortcodes

Shortcodes add dynamic content to your site via a small piece of code.

The plugin supports two shortcodes. 

1) Show a Quiz

  • Shortcode[cm_quiz id="xxx"]
  • Use: Displays a quiz
  • Obligatory parameters
    • id - Insert either the quiz id or the slug.
  • Example

    Example


2) Display Content Depending on Score Range

  • Shortcodes[cm_quiz_success][/cm_quiz_success] and [cm_quiz_fail][/cm_quiz_fail]
  • Use: Displays the content inside the shortcode only if the user's score for that quiz is inside a set range.
    [cm_quiz_success] will show the content only if the score is equal or higher than the chosen one.
    [cm_quiz_fail] will show the content only if the score is lower than the chosen one.
  • Obligatory parameters
    • id - Insert either the quiz id or the slug.
    • score - Value in percentage. 
  • Example: The example below considers a user that has a score above 50% in the chosen quiz. Note that only content inside the shortcode [cm_quiz_success] appears. 

    Example


3) Show Number of Remaining Retakes

How It Works

This shortcode sets a countdown for completions of a quiz. It's purely a countdown - the quiz is not locked after the number reaches 0.

  • Shortcode[cm_quiz_countdown id="quiz_id" starting_number="any_number" output="remain|passed"]
  • Use: Displays a countdown counter of how many more times the quiz can be taken. 
  • Obligatory parameters
    • id - Insert either the quiz id or slug.
    • starting_number - The maximum count of completions for that quiz. 
    • output - Accepts both below. If nothing is set, it will be remain.
      • remain - returns how many users can still pass the test.
        For example, if starting_number is 10 and 3 people finished the quiz, remain will return 7.
        Note that his number can be negative! In the example above, if 11 people finished the quiz, remain will return 3.
      • passed - returns how many users have passed the test.
        For example, if starting_number is 10 and 3 people finished the quiz, passed will return 3.
  • Example: You should rush! Only   [cm_quiz_countdown id="56" starting_number="100" output="remain"] people can still take the exam!
