Hi there,

I get the following error when trying to connect to some of my moodle instances with the mobile app with moodle 3.5

On another platform with the same plugins installed and same theme, everything is ok

Any hint?

thanks in advance

I found the problem.

If CFG->courseoverviewfileslimit is set to 0, course/lib.php is not loaded (see lib/coursecatlib.php) in function get_course_overviewfiles() and thus there is no "course_get_format" function available.

Moving line 3013 of coursecatlib up before the test on $CFG->courseoverviewfileslimit solves the problem

Regards
