Not understanding Next button / conditional logic

    My form is a series of riddles. The user must answer each correctly in order to advance to the next riddle (page). 

    I can set up conditions to make that happen in a single page, but I want each riddle on a separate page - and the Next button does nothing?? I cannot find where to enable the Next button to go forward after a correct response. And the "If / then show" condition is not working, either??

    It should work like this:

    Riddle 1 - incorrect answer, shows Hint
    Riddle 1 - correct answer, go to Riddle 2

    and so on...

    Then after final riddle they go to a page and provide email address to "submit" the form (and receive a gift)

    Also, I need the "Next" button NOT to advance after an incorrect answer. Is that possible?
    Can paging be done without "next" and "back" buttons?

    You can use template like https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/trivia-quiz to offer one question on each page.

    You can mark the fields mandatory to force user to fill it to process further

    Click the field and click "Required" in the toolbar.

    Yo can use conditions to show and hide Hits text based on user's response by following instructions at https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you have more questions.

    I AM using that template for the trivia quiz :)  and all questions are "required"

    I set up condition on the first 2 for correct answers but it seems they can still use the "Next" button to proceed after the hint even if the answer is still incorrect?

    Hi,

    If you don't want the user to proceed after the hint on questions, you can set conditions to hide/show base on the users answer so that the user will not be able to proceed when they choose the wrong answer.

    Here's a guide on How to Show or Hide Fields Base on User's Answer

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
    Regards

    Thank you - I now see that I can hide a page break in the Conditions, which hides the back/next buttons. That was not clear for some reason.
