Quiz type selection is now remembered

Submitted by Hugh on 23 February 2018

I'm pleased to announce that the Lesson Quiz type which you select will now be remembered and used until you change it again.

The quiz type is set in the Lesson Quiz tab. What this means is that if, for example, you select to do the Reading quizzes, all the quizzes will be Reading quizzes until you select something else.

Previously there had been a monthly or annual membership subscription if you wanted to use Lingopolo. But no more; it is now 100% free.

Why? How, then, is Lingopolo going to make money?

A little bit of history

For the why, let me first explain a little bit of history and my original plans.
