User rights[edit]

This extension adds one new user right, quizadmin which allows administering quizzes. By default sysops and staff have this user right.

User points[edit]

  • $wgUserStatsPointValues['quiz_answered'] — set this to something to give out points for answering existing quiz game questions.
  • $wgUserStatsPointValues['quiz_correct'] — I have no idea what this does. Related comment from source code: "Add to stats how many quizzes the user has answered correctly"
  • $wgUserStatsPointValues['quiz_created'] — set this to something to give out points for creating new quiz games.
  • $wgUserStatsPointValues['quiz_points'] — I have no idea what this does. Related comment from source code: "Add to point total"

Parameters[edit]

  • $wgQuizLogs — whether to log quiz creations or not. Defaults to true.
  • $wgCreateQuizThresholds — for example 'edits' => 5 if you want to require users to have at least 5 edits before they can create new quizzes. Defaults to an empty array (no restrictions).
  • $wgQuizID — this is the internal ID number of the current quiz and is used by QuizGame internally. It's documented here only for the sake of completeness. Do not set it!
