All I can see is 'Certificate FAT' but I haven't a clue what that is (and it doesn't really say what's different about it in the documentation).
The link in the docs for (1.9) Certificate is now broken.
Quite right ! Unfortunately at the same time the certificate module changed from maintainer, it was removed from the old module & plugins database.
At that time, I conplained both in the forums and in the tracker but received no answer
The only known workaround is to use the link http://download.moodle.org/download.php/plugins19/mod/certificate.zip
Warning : it is very important to use url with plugins19 rather than plugins to be sure to download the version for Moodle 1.9
Alternatively if you have a cvs client you can use the contrib cvs too
For how many time the contrib cvs is still available is of course unknown !
You can try this download link that was posted above, if that did not do it for you, then you can try the following:
I would recommend that you check out the /moodle/mod/certificate folder for your moodle version as follows:
Use some CVS command similar to one of these ones:
cvs update -dP -r MOODLE_18_STABLE
cvs update -dP -r MOODLE_19_STABLE
cvs update -dP -r MOODLE_20_STABLE
cvs update -dP -r MOODLE_21_STABLE
(choose your Moodle version)
Then copy that checked out /moodle/mod/certificate folder to your site, go to admin, notifications and it installs then automatically.
Yes it is probably the "contrib" CVS then, I am not a 100% sure about this, but that is the way that I got the Certificate module working on a Moodle 2.1 version. And you are after a 1.9 Certificate Module version.
Thank you Jean-Michel Vedrine for providing us with this download link for 1.9:
For Moodle 2.1 the very best solution is to download from https://github.com/PukunuiAustralia/moodle-mod_certificate because Mark Nelson has fixed numerous bugs that are still in the contrib CVS master branch
So i repeat so that all users coming to that thread make no mistake
If you are using Moodle 1.9.x the best version you can download is http://download.moodle.org/download.php/plugins19/mod/certificate.zip
If you are using Moodle 2.0.x you must go to https://github.com/PukunuiAustralia/moodle-mod_certificate and choose branch MOODLE_20_STABLE
If you are using Moodle 2.1.x you must go to https://github.com/PukunuiAustralia/moodle-mod_certificate and choose branch master
All right, thank you!
Thankks for the post. This is a time when I really wish I had the option to click "sticky" in a moodle thread. ;)
Well, if only Moodle had already adopted forumng ...
