I am a beginner Moodle developer looking to build a plugin for my organization's LMS. To learn, I am taking the Moodle Plugin Development Basics course (here). After setting up my development environment (I am using XAMPP), I am prompted to create a simple "Hello World" plugin.
Here are the instructions:
I have followed these steps exactly. The course tells me that upon my next login to my moodle site, I will be prompted to install this plugin. Or, I can visit (http://localhost/moodle/admin/index.php) the admin notifications page to trigger the upgrade. However, I don't see anything about the new plugin when I do either option. I have enabled developer debugging and display errors but no errors are showing. This is very confusing, and I would appreciate any insight as to why my plugin is not showing up.
