Is it publicly available?
I've got a link to our squirrelmail setup on ours, but some way of letting pupils know that there's new mail for them would be so useful.
In response to Mark's original query, we use the RSS block for a feed from the main school newsletter, and Tony Hursh's Reference Tools, to which I've added a few external links and some other search engines. I've also added Google and Wikipedia forms to the Search Forums block, the former using our Google public service search layout, which preserves the Moodle Cornflower look/feel. Two out of the above three are visible on our Moodle home page.
I'm afraid my coding isn't nearly good enough to add to the cvs contribs but I can let anyone interested have copies by email.
- With the new coding structure for 1.5 Dev, I think my "Ads" and "Ads2" blocks could now be combined into one single block with multiple instances allowed. I do have both of these working in 1.4.3 and 1.5 Dev.
- The Google SafeSearch and ScholarSearch, dictionary and thesaurus blocks area all current and I have them working in 1.4.3 and 1.5 Dev.
If anyone has a block that takes the time from the server, I would appreciate you sharing the code.
- With a lot of help from Jan, I now have a working version of the random Quote block working in 1.5 Dev, with bugs (Mostly style related issues). The 1.4.3 version works perfectly.
Also, let me know what you thyink of the new theme I am developing for 1.5 Dev.
Nice Theme... I like the way it minimizes the windows.
Could you post your Advert blocks, they could be handy.
What do u think of the new version (1.5) ?
At the moment we are still running 1.4.3.... not risking 1.5 yet.
The more I work with 1.5Dev, the more I like it. The minimizing windows, is a 1.5dev feature and the theme I am customizing for 1.5Dev.
There are some issues, as Martin has posted, but when it's done it will be REALLY cool. However, unless you are on the cutting edge, don't try it until the second release.
The documentation for custom blocks that Jon put together has been wonderful
I am attaching the ad block. It is all hard coded. So you will need to edit the html portion within the block_advertisement.php.
I like a lot the google search block. In fact, I didn´t know that there existed safe mode searchers and a scholar search.
Could you please attach it to the forum?
PD: I'm also using an analogyc clock block but it also takes the hour from the user PC.
