Summary07222: Randomized order of questions within group not working for question by question format

I have 3 question groups and 10 questions within each group.

Ideally, the question group order is not random, but the questions within each group should appear randomly with one per page ("Question by Question" format)

I used the "Randomization Group Name" to randomize the individual questions. In "Question by Question" format, the questions do not appear randomly. However, in "Group by Group" format, the questions do indeed appear randomly.

Steps To Reproduce

Test survey using "Question by Question" format, then test survey using "Group by Group" format

This is probably fixed in the build that will be released today. Could you please test a few times (using clear answers and restart) and let us know if your problem was fixed?

I updated the build to 130129 and tried testing a few times and my problem was not fixed. Now the format doesn't appear randomly for neither "Question by Question" nor "Group by Group".

In last build fixes where made for randomization of entire groups. The commit attached to this post fixes randomization for questions. If possible, could you test by replacing your frontend_helper with the one attached to this bug? That way you get the fix before release and really help us test it.

I have had exactly the same issue and the new frontend_helper.php seems to fix it!

Thank you very much mdekker for fixing the error! I greatly appreciate your time and effort in helping with this bug. My survey works as anticipated now! Many thanks!

Side note: Will it be possible for you to remove the attached survey I initially included? Thanks!
