I am using HD quiz on my site – aussian.com for more than a year now. It was working fine but with the recent update, the questions are no longer appearing in random order. I have a set of more than 100 questions and I select 20 out of the pool of these questions. If you fail the quiz and re-take, the questions appear in the exact same order as before.
Could you please advise what is causing this issue?

Hi Harsh,
99% of the time, this is because you are caching the page.

The way page caching works is that it loads a page once, and then creates a “static” version of what it sees. However, since you want the order to be random on each page load, you’ll have to disable caching on whatever page the quiz is on so that the page content can be dynamic again. So please check the settings of whatever page caching solution you are using and add the page with the quiz to the “excludes” list.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi Dylan,

Thanks very much for your reply. It looks like caching indeed was the issue. I have excluded the quiz pages and it seems to be working now. So thanks for your suggestion and for making such an awesome plugin.

If you are enjoying HD Quiz please leave a review here on the official WordPress.org page. HD Quiz is developed by me, just some dude, and is supported and available for free. It may seem dumb, but truly nothing makes me happier than knowing that people are using and loving HD Quiz and my hard work.
