Unless you require some especial customization, you should install WIRIS quizzes using its automatic installer. In most environments, a few clicks will be enough.


1 Requirements

2 Copy files

Unzip in the root directory of Moodle. The folder wiris-quizzes will be created.

3 Check read/write permissions

Make sure that the web server has reading and writing access to the root directory of Moodle (see Which permissions does the installer need?).

4 Installation

Open in your browser the URL http://<your_moodle>/wiris-quizzes/install.php, and follow the instructions therein (see Which WIRIS quizzes service server must be selected?)

5 Troubleshooting

If any problem arises during the installation, try searching in the FAQ. If you cannot fix the problem, try the manual installation, where every step of the installation process is described, which may give some hints on the encountered problems.

WIRIS plugins integrations allow to integrate WIRIS editor and WIRIS cas in a group of HTML editors. These editors are widely used in thousands of web platfoms.

In order to integrate WIRIS tools with your rich text editor, you require some scripting. We include some integration demos, our live demos, to ease the integration process.

NOTE: the following links give you access to several WIRIS plugin integrations demo source code. Those files are not the WIRIS plugin themselves. You can find WIRIS plugin files in WIRIS plugins download page.
