    Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I have no idea where it belongs.

    Question: How can I make a site/page that asks a series of questions? The end user answers the questions in multiple choice format. Based off of his answers to say 20 questions, he gets the results at the end.

    Example: Let's say that I have a site about finding the type of clothing that you should be wearing. You come to my site and answer a series of multiple choice questions about your personality. Based on your answers, you are brought to a page that shows your ideal wardrobe.

    Background: I am basically a computer idiot. Once I get away from WP, I'm lost in the dark. Maybe there is a plugin that resolves this?

    Bonus Question: How hard would it be to design an app that does this and then directs the person to a targeted page to receive the results? Costs?

    Thank you guys for any help you can give! :)

    You should check out poll plugins for WP. Basically if I understand correctly you want to make a poll that shows the users the results, or did I misunderstand?

    Maybe a poll would work? Based off of let's say 20 questions, their answers to them would lead to a certain page. Let's say that I have 5 "results" pages. Depending upon certain answers they give, they will be directed to one of the five results pages. Jesus I'm confusing myself...

    Easy version: You go to the site and answer 2 A/B Questions. If you answer A on both, you are directed to page 1 for your "personalized" results. If you answer A and B, you are sent to page 2. etc. etc.

    Does that make any sense?

    I've did something similar for myself and what you need is to write a custom functions for Wordpress or hire some programmer to do it for you. I haven't searched around the Wordpress plugins repo so I'm not sure if they have it already.

    In my opinion you could find a poll plugin with that functionality.. I don't really have much experience with them so make a google search for this type of plugins and see if any of them fit. If not then custom coding is always the best way to go, but it is also the expensive way to go..

    Regarding your first question there are plenty of wordpress quiz plugins you can use for example:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/slickquiz/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-pro-quiz/

    and many others just do a little search in the wordpress plugin repository :)

    About the app you should be more specific if we are talking android/ios anywhere from 30$ to 100$ if you buy the source code from something like chumpamobile or codecanyon and do a few small tweaks. If its something custom coded then it heavly depends on the coder/company you are going ot use.

    A personality test script would work as a base for that, plenty of free ones around.

    I was worried that this is the answer.

    I'll play around with some mentioned plugins, but I have a bad feeling...

    Ty!
