For the last couple of days I have been unable to add a quiz chain in Quizport. If I select:
Adding a New Quiz>Add Quiz Chain>Yes>Save Changes the computer just hangs.
If I do the same with Add Quiz Chain>No, Quizport happily adds the new quiz.
I was wondering if this might have something to do with my internet connection but I have been able to do other "heavy" things like uploading large files. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
how many quizzes are there in your chain?
Does the computer hang if you try uploading to my server?
At some point you said (but maybe that message got deleted?):
> The Quizport is large ..
Anyway, if this is the case then I suspect that your is running out of execution time or maybe memory or maybe both.
Are you able to add half the quizzes OK? How about a 25%?
If I were you I would try adding smaller numbers and try to determine if it is indeed choking on sheer quantity of quizzes, or whether there is a particular quiz that causes QuizPort to abort.
Yes that particular Quizport was large but I had trouble with a smaller one too. I just uploaded the file A1_vocab to your server but had the same trouble when I tried to add a quiz chain of ten quizzes. So, assuming you are able to load quiz chains on your server, I guess the problem is my end.
Thanks for helping me clarify that anyway.
I'll try adding them myself and report back.
the next button for "A1_Vocab/A_V4.htm" points to "A1_Vocab/A_V4.htm", i.e. the same file, so there is a continuous loop and eventually the server runs out of memory.
I have modified QuizPort to detect a looping chain of quizzes and stop adding quizzes if the next quiz is in fact a quiz that has already been added.
thanks for uploading your quiz chain for me to test on
all the best
Thanks very much for taking the time to clarify the problem.
> Now I know to check the chain before I complain
Oh, you phrased it so nicely, I didn't realize you were complaining
Anyway I'm glad we got it all sorted out.
