You’re not playing around, are you?

If you’re looking at this WordPress Quiz plugin, you want results.

More user engagement, more social shares. More email optins.

Or some other, related result.

Gutenberg Compatible

This plugin is fully compatible with WordPress 5.0’s new content editor (“Gutenberg”). Simply create your quiz, then add your quiz block to your website.

We’ve got the right plugin for you: Quiz Cat.

As its name suggests, Quiz Cat is all about quizzes. Install it and you can effortlessly create quizzes for your website. Those quizzes, in turn, can be a true game-changer – engaging your audience to an extent you never thought possible.

That’s a bold statement to make, but we can back it up. As proof, just think about the revealing quizzes your friends may pass around on Facebook. Or the addictive pop culture quizzes from sites like BuzzFeed. In both cases, quizzes act as a kind of “digital glue” – making people stick to websites.

Knowing that, imagine what you could accomplish with a quiz.

With a quiz, you’d give your website its own “digital glue”. Whoever came to your site would have a definite reason to stick around. After all, who doesn’t want to know “Are you a true Game of Thrones expert?” or “How well you know body language?”. These are among life’s most important questions. Rivaled only by other equally pressing ones like “Who wants to be a millionaire?” and “What’s for dinner?”

We can joke about it here, but the engagement that quizzes produce is no laughing matter. Make a quiz for your website and you’ll see what we mean. Depending on the questions in your quiz, people may get hooked on it. Hooked, in the same way people used to get hopelessly addicted to simple PC games like Minesweeper.

Your quiz, however, has something those old-school PC games didn’t.

The chance to go viral.

If it goes viral, your quiz will spread like wildfire among your online audience. People who visit your site and take the quiz will then pass it to their friends. Who will pass the quiz to their friends. And so on. All the while, promoting your site, where the quiz originated.

It’ll be an explosion. Like one of those Minesweeper mines going off. Only this time you win the game. In a big, big way.

Ready to rig your website with an explosive quiz?

Then you need Quiz Cat.

And, you need to understand how this WordPress quiz plugin works.

No need to read a dry, lengthy manual, though.

Quiz Cat Features

We’ll give you the 4-1-1 on Quiz Cat right here. Everything you need to know about our quiz builder plugin, and nothing you don’t.

For starters, each Quiz has a beautiful “Quiz landing page” that comes with headline, subheadline, image and a beautiful “Start Quiz” button.

You should know that Quiz Cat lets you create unlimited quizzes. Feel free to create as many quizzes as you desire. There’s no limit, really.

The same is true for the questions in your quizzes. Each quiz you create with Quiz Cat can have as many questions as you want.

Those quiz questions, in turn, will be accompanied by multiple choice answers. Each question on your quiz can have between two and four possible answers.

Plus, if you create interesting questions, you’ll have quiz-takers finishing the quiz just to see the answers. A hip-hop quiz, for example, might create this level of engagement with questions like “Who really shot Notorious B.I.G.?” or “Is Tupac in Africa?”

Naturally, your quiz’s questions don’t have to keep it “gangster”. Just give it some thought and you’re bound to create equally engaging quiz questions. The kind of questions which leave quiz-takers with “no choice” but to complete the quiz.

Speaking of completion, that’s another fun feature of Quiz Cat. Our WordPress quiz plugin lets you create custom messages to display on completion.

Suppose, for instance, that you’re creating the “Game of Thrones” quiz we mentioned earlier. You could make your quiz even more enjoyable with amusing messages at the end. If someone answered all of the quiz questions correctly, you could have a message declaring them to be “a true Game of Thrones geek”. Anyone who missed quiz questions, on the other hand, might see a message poking fun at them or questioning their true knowledge of Game of Thrones.

The exact messages and images you show quiz-takers at the end is entirely up to you. You’re certainly not forced to follow any pre-determined, template messages. All Quiz Cat does here is provide the ability to create a custom headline, image, and description based on a respondent’s quiz score. You then have complete creative control over the quiz from there.

Another feature of Quiz Cat – one you’ll love – is that this quiz plugin randomly shuffles quiz answers. Shuffling keeps the answer to question one of your quiz from always having to be “A”. “A” could be the right answer this time, while “D” might be the correct answer next.

Shuffling answers around can be a powerful way to engage quiz-takers. That’s because it keeps people taking your quiz from simply memorizing a sequence of letters. Your quiz-takers must actually know the material. And in order to do that, they must read and think about the quiz’s questions.

Your quiz itself may be challenging, but the process to create a quiz won’t be. We the creators of Quiz Cat (Fatcat Apps) want this to be the absolute simplest WordPress quiz plugin out there. Like our other plugins (Optin Cat, Easy Pricing Tables & more), we’ve made this quiz builder plugin (Quiz Cat) delightfully easy to use. Creating quizzes with Quiz Cat is, to borrow a cliche, so easy a caveman can do it.

The only “difficult”, “brain-straining” part of Quiz Cat is thinking up questions. You’ll have to come up with the quiz questions yourself. Our WordPress quiz plugin doesn’t do that.

Still, for every other part of the quiz creation process, our plugin can definitely help you. From designing the format of the quiz (number of quiz questions, message after the quiz, etc.) to publishing the quiz on your website. Quiz Cat will be there for all of it, with a quiz builder that you can rely on.

Once your quiz is ready to be published, Quiz Cat allows you to do so with a simple shortcode. Take the shortcode from our WordPress quiz plugin and paste it into any post or page on your site. Like magic seeds, a quiz will then sprout from the shortcode – appearing wherever you wish.

Not only do we support shortcodes, we also let you add a Quiz Block to your site using WordPress 5.0’s magnificent Gutenberg content editor.


You should be aware that Quiz Cat is fully translateable.

All text strings in Quiz Cat’s backend support translation. On the frontend, most content can be changed to fit your target audience’s language, and the few things that can’t be changed from the user interface can be changed with PHP Filters (see the “Frequently Asked Questions” tab for more).

Being able to translate the plugin quiz makes sense given the international scope of web traffic. We want your quizzes to be enjoyed by everyone who visits your site. And our WordPress quiz plugin can do just that, making your quizzes linguistically accessible.

As long as we’re talking about translating quizzes with Quiz Cat, here’s a fun fact. Some of the creators of Quiz Cat are not native English speakers. Visit our website (FatCatApps.com) and you’ll see this for yourself – our founder is a native German speaker. So when we decided to build a WordPress quiz plugin, it was a given that multilingual support would be included.

While Quiz Cat is fully tranlsation enabled, it hasn’t actually been translated yet. If we’re going to build the best WordPress quiz plugin possible, our quizzes need to be accessible to all. So Quiz Cat – at least in terms of language support – still has a ways to go.

With that in mind, we’d like to extend an invitation to you. (Yes, that’s “you” as in the one reading this ReadMe file right now.)

We’re looking for translators to help expand Quiz Cat’s multilingual support. If you speak another language and want to help improve our WordPress quiz plugin, feel free to reach out in the support forums and let us know you’d like to contribute to Quiz Cat.

Regardless of whether you contact us about being a translator; thanks for reading this far.

Ready To Build Viral & Engaging Quizzes?

We’ve at the end of our pitch now, on why Quiz Cat is the plugin you’re looking for. This game-changing WordPress quiz plugin that will electrify your audience, leading to more signups and/or sales.

We could continue to talk about Quiz Cat, but why bother? At this point, it’s now up to you. Install Quiz Cat and see for yourself just how powerful it really is.

Here’s to you, your quizzes, and the satisfying results they’ll deliver!

The plugin works great, is easy to use, but only gives one right answer. As we need multiple choice, it won't be right for us. However, there is a little glitch, on clicking on the correct answer to go to the next, the screen is upside down...... very odd.

It helps drive traffic, is fun to make and fun to do. My site is more lively because of quiz cat

People love to think about themselves, and discover their hidden talents. Our Which Wildcat Am I? Quiz gets a 21% click thru rate. When people answer the questions, they have to give me their email address to retrieved their answer. It's fun for the user and enables us to start a conversation with cat lovers who can support our vision of a world where all wild cats live free.

I have to uninstall this plugin because of two reasons: 1. Data from this plugin cannot be read by search engines, that's a big problem. I created quizzes with this plugin and pasted the shortcode on my post, google bot just ignored my post. Google bot cannot read anything from this plugin. 2. This plugin does not work well with the theme 'Hestia' and the developer(s) of this plugin do not offer any help. 3. I found another quiz plugin.

This plugin is great for quickly creating a Buzzfeed-style quiz. It presents the results in a charming and engaging fashion. The styling is perhaps a tad rough, but the output this plugin makes is still quite presentable without any additional effort. There is only one oversight I have noticed— the plugin doesn't allow you to select a thumbnail size for the images you upload to the quiz questions/results. It just inserts the full-size image into the page, no matter how huge it may be, and then resizes the image using CSS. The end result is that the images look fine, but they flash up on the screen at a larger size and take much longer to download than if they were properly sized. So I had to resize all of my images in Automator before inserting them into the quiz. Not a huge deal, but I really don't like cluttering up my media library with small images and I hate having to use Automator for functionality that is already built into WordPress. I really like this plugin otherwise, and I hope that this oversight can be corrected in a future release!
