    There have been some updates to the forum in the last week or so. The glitches might be connected to that. I'm sure the webmaster will be able to look into it soon (bear in mind it is a long holiday weekend in the UK so it might take some time).

    Note my corrections above.

    Re: Quizzes NOT working!!

    It is probably a line of code in the major changes we are making. I apologise for the inconvenience. The webmaster will fix it very quickly. Sorry again

    I am afraid that major changes can be a bit whack-a-mole; we were fixing a big problem a few days ago and, while sorting one thing out, may have triggered another that was not there before. Again, our apologies.

    Hi there! Thanks for using our quizzes, and I am sorry you experienced issues with them over the last week. As has been said above, there have been a number of changes recently and a bug crept in to the code which has now been fixed. I hope therefore that all should be working again for you as before. Please do let me know if you still have any issues.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    They're working OK for me. Try this link.

    Edit: Ah, OK, I see what you mean. The quizzes are all there but when you complete one and try to get to the results, it takes you to an "oops" page.
