I've just written a 30 question quiz and it won't show on the preview, I can't edit it (as the questions don't show) and I can't seem to do anything to bring it back. On the side preview thing (where it shows what should go where) it shows the first question, so it is still saved I imagine. Any ideas?
I haven't used many quizzes, but I didn't realize you could have that many questions in one quiz capsule. In fact, for some reason I thought that there was only one question per box. Could that be the problem?
I know that with some (maybe all) capsules there is a box that you can check that says to hide the capsule. Is it possible that that box somehow got checked by accident? If so, then the capsule should still be available for editing, but it wouldn't show up in the preview.
I'm really just guessing here, but those are two possibilities I can think of.
ETA: Ooooppps. You did say that you couldn't edit it. Sorry.
Here's one more thought. The layout on the right side (in editing mode) will stay the same even after some changes have been made, until you click on "save changes" (or whatever the exact words are). Is it possible that the quiz capsule really isn't there, after all? I've never lost a capsule, but there are occasional glitches of different kinds, so maybe something weird has happened to it.
I've had quizzes with 20 something questions, so I don't think that'll be the problem. The Capsule is there even after login out and back in =/
It popped up, I went to change an answer and then it went again
Ok, that quiz is working now. We're still trying to figure out what caused the problem to begin with, however ...
Just to let you know, my quiz is affected, too (http://hubpages.com/hub/education-in-the-middle-ages). I hope they will be fixed soon, so I can add quizzes to a bunch of my hubs! I finished the hub and published it, and on both the preview and the finished version there is only a big white square, which is covering up part of the next text capsule.
Another one(Lightweight one) is either disappearing or showing 50 questions (repeating each one).
I am having a problem with the quiz on my new hub as well where it only has 14 questions but is showing 26 with several questions repeating. In edit mode it looks perfect but is wacky in the public view.

I have a quiz capsule in a hub which I'm working on. It should have 8 questions and when I go into edit those are what I see. However once I save it shows 11 questions some of which are multiples of the same question....

Is it possible, (or even desirable) to make a link to another capsule farther down the page? For example, I made brief reference in my first paragraph to something I added as a minor addition at the end. ...

The quiz capsule has some behavioral problems. It likes to play the funny little trick where it duplicates your questions, sometimes just doubles, but if it's particularly fussy, it will go for triples! ...

I decided to use the quiz capsule for a hub. Originally I planned ten questions but as I was saving the capsule I got a message in red that I had not written an answer. I knew I wrote an answer for each question but I...

Currently there is only a text based quiz format capsule available (One which is good but for some reason appears very small in relation to the size of the page).What would be nice is having the option within that quiz,...
