Update 7-27-19: Because this blog post was originally hosted on another domain, the images did not make it over. However, the instructions below should still explain fairly well how to do this. I will look at some external hard drives from back in 2010 and see if I can find the images.
Ok, so you are currently using Limesurvey, and you have assessment mode set up. But when a person finishes, you want to kick them to the external page of your choice. Unfortunately, limesurvey doesn’t have this option, but if your smart, there is a way around this limitation. Read on for the trick:
So it’s actually quite simple. All you need is a little bit of HTML knowhow. There is a code called html redirect, which when ran, basically kicks people to whatever page you want. In this case, I want to send people to a special coupon, based on their answers. Read on for the info.
To do this, I create the values and assessment like normal. But when I go to the assessment results:
I make sure to then click on the little lime logo at the top left hand corner:
This will full screen the page, but then it gives you quite a few more options, Including the Source option, which is what we’re looking for here, since we want to put some HTML code in the site.
Ok, now we can add HTML. The code you will be putting, is this html Redirect:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV=”REFRESH” content=”0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html”>
Obviously, replace the yourdomain with whatever site URL you want. This will make limesurvey kick the person to an external page. It will look something like this:
The person will see the text above the html for a few seconds, so let them know that they are being redirected, in case their connection is slow.
