I am trying to display a quiz from "WP Quiz" plugin using a shortcode [wp_quiz id="1128"] 

But the shortcode always displays as a plain text. There is no quiz addon for WPforo & I have already purchased the embed addon but nothing seems to work?

 Any other to display the third party shortcodes?

I don't want to embed the blog post I only want the shortcode to be displayed directly in the forum body.

Hi @nawaz10,

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features admin page, enable the "WordPress Shortcodes in Post Content" option, then delete all caches and check again.

Please provide us the following example URLs:

  • 1. How it looks in wpForo post content
  • 2. How it looks in other posts/pages

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page, put the CSS code below in the "Custom CSS code"  textarea, save it, delete all caches and check again. The issue should be solved. 

.wq_questionTextWrapper.quiz-pro-clearfix {
clear: none !important;
}

.wq_questionTextWrapper.quiz-pro-clearfix {
height: 60px !important;
}

.wq-quiz.wq-skin-flat .wq_singleAnswerCtr {
background-color: var(--wq-background-color, #ecf0f1) !important;
color: var(--wq-font-color, #5f5f5f) !important;
border: 3px solid transparent;
padding: 5px 7px !important;
margin: 0 0 15px 0 !important;
border-radius: 3px !important;
line-height: 30px !important;
}

.wq_singleAnswerCtr .wq_answerTxtCtr {
font-size: 18px !important;
padding-left: 25px !important;
}

Please don't forget to press Ctrl+F5 (twice) on the frontend before checking to reload the updated CSS file.

The blocks are looking nice but they are not functional now. (When you select the answer it should turn red for wrong answer and green for a correct answer. Right now it's doing nothing) 

Try clicking on the answer on both links and you will understand what I am saying.

This issue doesn't come from the wpForo plugin. You should contact the WP Quiz plugin and let them know about the issue. wpForo is only responsible for the embedding of the shortcode in the post content.
