        @Michael Cheers Thanks very much for the update. It works well now.

        I have a second issue with trying to upload an excel file to be used to set up a Kahoot. I used the merge successfully and was able to download it and view the Excel file with no trouble. However, i wanted to change something, save it and then upload it. This does not work for me.

        I get the following error msg:

        Warning: file_get_contents(https://create.kahoot.it/rest/kahoots): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request in /home2/lcheers/public_html/michael/kahoottools/index.php on line 90

        I have both the file I downloaded and the one I tried to upload but I'm not sure how to send them to you on this forum.

        @Michael Cheers, thank you so much! I just tried your merge tool and it worked! I've been wanting a way to merge multiple Kahoots into one for awhile now. Thanks again!

        @Frank Kovacs, thank you for alerting me of this defect. Kahoot changed the format of their play links recently. It should work now with the new link style.

        @Frank Kovacs, if you could send me the kahoot links it would be useful.

        @Michael Cheers - I am having problems using the merge tool. I have 2 duplicated Kahoots that I made from a couple of my students. I made them public and copied the Play link into the merge tool but I get the following error:

        Warning: array_merge(): Argument #1 is not an array in /home2/lcheers/public_html/michael/kahoottools/index.php on line 213

        Warning: file_get_contents(https://create.kahoot.it/rest/kahoots): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request in /home2/lcheers/public_html/michael/kahoottools/index.php on line 81

        Thanks for any help you can give.

        We should be able to combine multiple Kahoots and then edit them down to one high quality product.

        @Anonymous, send me the excel file and I'll take a look.

        @Anonymous, I got the same error messages once. I double checked the Share settings on each quiz I intended to merge. I discovered one was set to Only Me. I switched it to share with anyone, and the merge tool worked without any trouble. Could that be the issue you are facing?

      • Frank Kovacs commented  · 

        @Michael Cheers This is a great tool for merging. I used your download tool and it seemed to work well too. I was able to edit the kahoot.xlsx but was unable to get the upload tool to work with it.

        I get the following error msgs:

        Warning: file_get_contents(https://create.kahoot.it/rest/kahoots): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request in /home2/lcheers/public_html/michael/kahoottools/index.php on line 81

        Thanks for any help you can give on this.

        @anonymous, I have solved your problem. I have added a input slot for a kahoot username. If you add yours, it will make the merge result a private kahoot shared with you. So, there will be no draft littering the internet.

        @Michael Cheers - I just tried your merge tool. Thanks so much for creating this. It worked beautifully. My only concern is that when it merges the games, it gives it a different owner. My merged games will need some work, and I would hate for this rough draft to be "out there" for others! I needed to duplicate it so I can work on it, so the file you created should probably be deleted.
        Thanks for the tool! Very useful for doing a final exam review!
