Hello all. New time user of jamovi. I have an ordinal dependent variable and an independent variable (3 groups) I'd like to compare. Already did the Kruskal-Wallis and am looking to use Mann Whitney U as a post-hoc. I will probably code it in r in the meantime, but was unable to add the ordinal variable since the Mann Whitney option in independent t-test only accepts continuous.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a bug here?

Edit: found the solution, data needs to be numeric, not text
