If you add this link from the Splash Page, then the link will trigger the questions to appear. If you add this link from the Opt-in Gate, then the link will trigger the Results Page.
This can be useful if you want to create your own custom buttons or images that take visitors to the next stage in the quiz.
How to Link to the Next Stage in the Quiz
We have integrated this functionality with both the quick link function and the "Button Link" and “Image Link” options in Thrive Architect.
Creating a Text Link
In this example, I will create a text hyperlink from my quiz Splash Page to the start of the quiz. Please note that this quick link feature is only available if you have Thrive Quiz Builder installed and you are editing either a Splash Page or an Opt-in Gate.
Firstly, add some text and select it:
Click on the "Link" option or press Ctrl+K:
Then, on the pop-up window, select the "Dynamic" section:
If you click on the “Dynamic” section, you will notice that the “Next step in quiz” will be selected by default, so that the next step in the quiz is linked to the text.
The text will now be hyperlinked and when clicked, will be redirected to the next step of the quiz.
Linking the Opt-in Form to the Results Page
To send your users straight to the Results Page after they have signed up on your Opt-in Gate all you have to do is connect the form to your mailing service, using an API Connection. You can find out how to establish such a connection in this article.
After the form is connected to your preferred mailing service, your user will be able to sign up on your mailing list and, after he has submitted his details, he will be sent to the Results Page.
Using the “Button link” and the “Image Link” options
You can also link images and buttons to the ”Next step in quiz” using the “Button link” and the “Image Link” options.
Both options can be accessed from the left sidebar of your Thrive Architect editor.
Using the “Button Link” option
On your “Splash Page”, you will notice a “Start Quiz” button, which is loaded by default. You can either link this one to take you to the next step of the quiz, or add a new button from the list of elements, and link that one:
Click on it, and then go to the “Main Options” section in the left sidebar.
Look for the “Button Link” and you will notice that the “Dynamic link” option is selected by default, and linked directly to the “Next step in quiz”:
And that's pretty much it! The button is linked automatically to your quiz. You can keep the button as it is, or you can further customize it to your own liking.
Here’s a detailed article on how you can do that.
Using the “Image Link” option
If you want to link your quiz to an image instead of a button, you can easily do that by adding the “Image” element from the right sidebar of your editor.
To do that, you can proceed just like in the case of any other Thrive Architect element, by going to the right sidebar and clicking on the plus sign:
Then, look for the “Image” element in the list, and simply drag and drop it to your page:
Once you have chosen the desired image from your “Media Library”, click on it to access the “Main Options” section of the sidebar.
Here, look for the “Add link to image” option and click on it:
Next, select the “Dynamic Link” option:
You will notice that the “Next step in quiz” is selected automatically, so don’t forget to click on the “Insert” button to make sure the image is linked to your quiz:
This is how you can easily link an image to the next step of the quiz.
