LimeSurvey plugin to change the position of the Other free text answer option


The “Change Other Position” LimeSurvey Plugin allows you to change the position of the Other free text answer option. It supports List Radio and Multiple Choice question types.

For using this LimeSurvey plugin you first have to create a LimeSurvey question of type List Radio or Multiple Choice. When adding the question you can enable the Other option on the right. Then, enter your answer options or subquestions. Once that was done, you are able to use the new “Change Other Position” display option to define before which option the “other” text field will  be shown.
By default the system adds the free text option to the end of the answer list. This feature now allows changing the position. It shows all entered answer options/subquestions of your LimeSurvey question. You find that Position “other” before option at the end of the Display section on the right. From that dropdown you can pick the option before which the “other” free text field will be shown.


  • Download the plugin as ZIP file (download link is shown after payment)  and un-zip all files.
  • Copy the “ChangeOtherPosition” folder to the Limesurvey “plugins” directory.
  • Activate the plugin at the Limesurvey plugin manager (requires sufficient user rights).
  • Edit the question you want to adjust where other gets shown.
