We assume that you’ve already installed and activated plugin. Now you’re ready to add stories and setup feeds.


  • Stories — any kind of viral content (including quizzes) created with OnionBuzz plugin.
  • Feeds — custom OnionBuzz taxonomies. Feeds are simply categories for your stories.

Displaying stories

There are two ways to display stories on your WordPress website:

  1. Add quiz shortcode on any blog post or page
