How do I set up a survey?

In lieu of the photo gallery, I'd like to have a questionnaire because I am conducting a marketing survey. Can someone tell me how to go about that?

I deleted the image boxes and reconfigured the page set-up to one column but that is as far as I can go for the moment. How do I type in the text of the questions and set up boxes for the survey taker to check and/or fill in the blank.

Then finally, how do I capture the information?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hello Chris. There are services out there that do all of this for you and you just drag and drop the fields that you want and everything. Here is one you might want to try: http://www.surveymonkey.com/ I didn't sign up or anything but it is one. Here is a google search I did for surveys: Google Search

Hope this helps.

Survey monkey appears to have a restriction on the number of items; unless you pay. Can anyone help with constructing a survey directly on a Yola site? If so please email to spacs@sky.com

Nathan,
Thanks for the quick response. I went to Survey Monkey and it is well done. In fact I created my survey and following their instructions I tried to embed the survey in my website. But it doesn't seem to be working.

I'm wondering if, since I am using the photo gallery page, that is causing the html coding/link to the Survey Monkey questionnaire problem.

Any thoughts?

Thanks again for the quick reply before.

Hello Chris, no problem. Would you mind posting your code so I can take a look? Maybe posting both codes so I can see both. Remember to wrap your code in <!-- and --> like this:

<!--

code here

Thanks,

Here is the coding they gave me to use:

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.


I will try adding the characters you suggested and see if that helps.

Hi sorry to confuse you. Don't add those characters to the code. I meant you have to do that for right on this forum because right now I can't see your code. Just repost the code but wrap it in <!-- and -->

@Chris: Ok so it is a script. It might have something to do with the gallery. Let me try putting that code on my test site really quick to see if it works. If it does that would mean it has something to do with the gallery code and then if it does work you'll need to post the gallery code.

It is a script writing the iframe to the page actually. What does it say when you add it to your page?

(if I understand your question) It just shows the html coding as pasted.

Oh I know why. You need to put it in an HTML widget. (If you didn't already) Drag over an HTML widget and paste in that code (but make sure to add the first ' back in when you put it in the widget) and then click Save.

Is that code in an HTML widget or a Text widget?

I'm not sure. I was using the photo gallery page and deleted the photo image box (widget?). Where do I get these widgets?

They are all on the side bar. In the "Basic" category drag over "HTML widget" and paste your code into that and then click on "Save"

Found it and we are making progress. The survey is two pages and only the first page is showing up on unpublsihed Yola template. How do I fix that?

Hello Chris, so you pasted in that exact code? I am going to test it out on my test site and I will post a link to it so you can see if it's working.

Yes that is it but it is only the first page. When you click the "NEXT" button, it just shows you the same first page again.

I have asked SurveyMonkey folks for some help but I have not heard back yet....they aren't as fast you, Nathan!!!1

I did add a page to my website in anticipation that it might be necessary when the survey ended up being two pages but that has not seemed to help my situation.

Thanks for your help so far, I'm sure you'll figure it out.

I heard from Survey Monkey and we are fine. The "trick" is that the "NEXT" button will take you to the next page but you have to answer the questions on page one first. So, we are set.

Thanks a million for your help and patience with me!
