I'm not sure if I should post this here or in the forum "Installing and upgrading help" but after Moodle was upgraded in my school from 3.3 to 3.5, the collapsed topics plugin went missing. Can this be prevented when upgrading? Other plugins were still there.
The plugin was set as the default course format in our system and this had some repercussions such as:
- The courses that previously had the collapsed topics format automatically got the one topic format > discussions, showing in most cases only announcements. Very confusing for teachers/students.
- When the plugin was put back in Moodle, all courses using collapsed topics were set to 8 weeks/topics (the default setting). If the course had more topics they were orphaned and still worse in some courses, all course materials were put in the first week/topic but all other weeks empty.
