This will open up the CMS, aka our Content Management System:
In your first subbuzz (the text and image box in your post, which is where you'll enter all content for your quiz), hover over the "quiz" button and select "trivia":
You'll begin by adding your trivia questions. You can either enter text-only questions like this...
Or if you'd prefer to add images from your computer, you may also do so. Just click on the frame icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the question and answer tiles in your draft:
Under each question, select the circle that correlates with the correct answer. That way, when someone takes your quiz, the CMS knows whether to give someone a pat on the back or let them know they got the answer wrong.
Then, after you've checked off the correct answer in the draft, add some text and upload an image or GIF for your reveal. This is the box that will appear when someone answers a question on your trivia quiz. Here's what it looks like from the draft side:

Repeat the above steps for each question until you've entered all of your questions (we recommend 5–9 questions). Then, press the "save and close quiz" button on the right-hand side of the draft to save your work!

⭐️Tips on writing great results for trivia quizzes⭐️
· Keep your results positive — even the results that pop up when someone gets a lot of questions incorrect!
· Always make sure that your results add up to 100% total in the trivia quiz builder. The CMS does not always do this automatically, so make sure your math is correct! Otherwise, you may have a hard time saving your quiz. This is usually the culprit.
