How to use the custom offset

We’ve added our ‘custom offset’ feature, so your quiz always displays perfectly to every user.

These days, many websites have a ‘sticky’ or always visible top menu bar – that is present no matter how far down the page you scroll.

This can cause issues with embedding a quiz – because your site’s header bar will overlap the quiz, and your audience will have to scroll down after each questions.

But fear not – there’s an easy fix.

We added a ‘custom offset’ feature for just this situation.

Simply enter the height of your site’s menu bar in pixels – and your quiz will be pushed down that amount, so it will always appear below it.

Take a look at this Dr. Who example from Penguin Random House – the quiz sits below their menu bar. (They could actually optimize this by increasing the offset by another 10 pexels or so.)

No muss, no fuss.

Offset your quiz

  • Measure height of your menu bar in pixels (Chrome has some free extensions like this one.)
  • Enter that number in the custom offset field in Riddle
  • Copy code and reembed (Riddles normally update automatically – but this feature will change your original embed settings, so you need to paste it again.)

Other embed and sharing options
