Author Notes
This extension was developed specifically for my website but I am releasing the code since a few members here have have shown interest. I cannot state that it is totally free of bugs. I would appreciate your feedback in making this extension better.

Maybe in Future
At the moment, the question is only restricted to one per competition. I would like to have the ability to add more than one question per competition.

I only need someone who updates me the php code

The template things can I manage...

I guess the competitions.php has to be splitted up into some plugins...

Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: hkc_competitions_openbit in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4097

Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: navbar in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4097

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /homepages/1/d348433514/htdocs/cpmedic/competitions.php(353) : eval()'d code on line 1

Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: hkc_COMPETITIONS in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4097

Any idea?

This add-on will not work under 4.x. Some 3.x functions, in particular those that fetch templates and generate the content do not work under 4.x

thanks!

Had updated it to vB4 and it works very well.

Currently I have to learn for my exams. After my exams I'm working on some last style changes and then I publish the new vB4 version.

Has anyone tested vBQuiz developed by Dragonsbyte?
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=262358

I guess this can be used, too.

Or is more or less better than the competitions mod.
