I use the quiz widget all the time in my hubs, and I have found it to be very buggy! In fact, I've had to re-enter many of my quizzes from scratch because of an annoying "Oops" message that comes up when I want to save it.
Other times, it seems that the quiz will duplicate all of my questions. This means a 10 questions quiz will turn into a 20 question quiz with 2 identical copies of every question.
These problems only happen when editing and existing quiz (like to fix a typo). You have to save the quiz and play it once to check for typos because the form for entering questions doesn't let you see the whole question at once, and you need to make sure you chose the right answers for each question. In the past, this error has seemed intermittent at best and I have just dealt with it. This past week, however, I've lost hours of work and had to repeat it because of this bug.
Has anyone had these problems? Is there a solution? Is there a way to contact Hubpages and let them know this bug is pretty serious and should be looked at? The error says (every time) that the engineering team has been notified, but I am beginning to doubt it.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond and any ideas you might have to share!

When a quiz capsule is introduced in a hub there sees a blank space under the question which destroys the formatting of the hub.Also sees a message "get this widget". So in total quiz capsule destroys the beauty of hub. How can I avoid these messages from this capsule?

I find that HubPages has changed drastically since I used to write here; I can no longer find the HubPages widget. Is it still available?

I know you can place widgets from your hubpages to a blog but can you put a widget on your hubs?

Recently I'm noticing new members who have no hubs, no activity where they read or comment on hubs, and only join to participate in self interest and/or bleeding heart questions in various forums. Sort of using HP as a chatroom. Before anyone attacks me for this, please know I enjoy the discussion...

I'd really like to do more linking to my Hub posts by topic. I have my own niche/ topical sites and I'm a content curator for several topics on a growing network. These are examples of places where I would like to place the HubPages widget or a link to all my posts in one topic (known as groups on...
