How To Make A Quiz On WordPress Without Plugin

Quizzes are a fun and interactive way to engage your audience and gather valuable information from your website visitors. While there are many plugins available for creating quizzes on WordPress, you can actually create a basic quiz without the use of any plugins. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of creating a simple quiz on your WordPress website using HTML and JavaScript.

Step 1: Create the HTML Structure

The first step is to create the HTML structure for your quiz. You can either do this by editing an existing page or post, or by creating a new one. In the WordPress editor, switch to the “Text” tab to edit the HTML directly.

Now, add the following code to your page or post:

    <form id="quiz">
        <div class="question">
            <p>Question 1: What is the capital of France?</p>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="a"> London<br>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="b"> Paris<br>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="c"> Rome<br>
        <!-- Add more questions in the same format as above -->
        <button type="button" onclick="checkQuiz()">Submit</button>
    <div id="results"></div>

You can add more questions to your quiz by copying the <div class=”question”> block and changing the question text and answer options. Make sure to also change the input name attribute (e.g., name=”q2″, name=”q3″, etc.) for each question.

Step 2: Add JavaScript to Check the Quiz

Now that we have the basic structure of our quiz, we need to add some JavaScript to check the answers and display the results. Add the following code to your page or post, right after the HTML code from step 1:

        function checkQuiz() {
            var quizForm = document.getElementById("quiz");
            var questions = quizForm.getElementsByClassName("question");
            var totalQuestions = questions.length;
            var correctAnswers = 0;

            for (var i = 0; i < totalQuestions; i++) {
                var question = questions&#91;i&#93;;
                var answerInputs = question.getElementsByTagName("input");

                for (var j = 0; j < answerInputs.length; j++) {
                    var input = answerInputs&#91;j&#93;;

                    if (input.checked && input.value === "b") {

            var resultsDiv = document.getElementById("results");
            resultsDiv.innerHTML = "You got " + correctAnswers + " out of " + totalQuestions + " correct!";

In this example, we assume that the correct answer for each question is the second option (value “b”). If this is not the case, you can change the correct answer value in the line if (input.checked && input.value === “b”).

Step 3: Save and Preview Your Quiz

Once you’ve added both the HTML and JavaScript code to your page or post, save your changes and preview the quiz. You should now be able to answer the questions, click the “Submit” button, and see the results displayed below the quiz.


Creating a quiz on WordPress without using a plugin is simple and straightforward. While this method may lack some of the advanced features provided by quiz plugins, it’s a great way to add a basic, interactive quiz to your website. Remember to customize the questions and answer options to suit your needs, and feel free to expand upon the code provided to add more features or style your quiz as desired.
