Hi HerrStibbe,To provide a
To provide a best possible experience for new users and to ensure that people use H5P.org only for trying out H5P (we've had more traffic than our server can handle lately, ref also the warnings when you create content, embed content and view the content) there are limited content types that are available.
Check the getting started page for information on how you can use all the content types and use H5P for real. We unfortunately are not able to provide free hosting, only free software :) Hopefully you'll consider supporting the H5P Core Team by using H5P.com.

I'm using this content type to help students learn basic coding. When I paste the code examples, the code doesn't retain the indentation or formatting like it does with other content types (e.g., Fill in the Blank). Is there way to add text formatting to individual content types?

Unable to make mistakes
We are enjoying this interactive but our people are unable to make mistakes. Is it possible to leave them able to drag the word in the wrong boxs and receive an error only when they have complete the exercise and checked the answers? Currently, they are just unable to drag and drop the wrong answer in the question box.

Hi Serenity38,You need to
You need to make a few changes to your content.
Please follow the steps below when creating a Drag & Drop activity with multiple drop zones and multiple draggables:
Create the drop zones
Create the draggables and place a check on the drop zones you would want the draggable to be dragged into (in most cases all the dropzones). This does not indicate the correct answer but only tells the content where you want to allow the draggable to drop.
Edit the drop zones to place a check on the correct draggables.
You can also check this simple video on how to create a D&D with multiple drop zones and draggables.

Hi Serenity38,I'm glad it
I'm glad it worked.
BTW I saw your other post before you edited it, if you think there is a bug in an H5P content I suggest that you post a separate thread in the bugs report forum and provide the information that is requested in that forum.

Advanced Scoring options
The usecases of this tool would increase a lot if some more advanced scoring options would become available. For instance, dropping an element in "zone A" would score 10 while dropping it in "zone B" would score 7. This is important for the subjectmatter that I teach since some options are not wrongg, but others are better. This would allow me to create a lot more complicated assignments with this tool.
I hope you'll consider it.
