Help! How to install Moodle plugins? I don't know which folder to install
How to install Moodle plugins?
Depends of the modul.
Normaly copy the modul direct into /mod/....
It will be installed automaticly with the next login. All sql-tabels will be written and updated.
But there are blocks, themes, .... which need different directories.
This should be in a readme file in each modul.
TAKE CARE not to install an incompatible version (to old/to new) - this will CRASH your system.
A Backup before may be a good choice - if you are not used in moodle installations.
I don't know which version was uploaded to the Moodle plugin database and it seems I can't add a more recent version.
The latest version has a configuration screen with which you can change the appearance of the clock and include an optional title or footer text. (see screenshot)
Latest version is in the Blocks for Moodle 1.5 section of this page
I am new at this and just loaded a site with 2.2.6 moodle. I am trying to load the flexpage plugin into the install. The install went smoothly but after loading the flexpage plugin into the site I am getting error messages stating that it needs "To be installed".
Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong? I would definitly appreciate the help.
The following places are providing errors:
pluginname,block_flexpage / blocks/flexpage extension New Version: 2011062802
Flexpage format /course/format/flexpage extension New Version: 2011062802
pluginname,theme_flexpage /theme/flexpage extension New Version: 2011062802
pluginname,local_flexpage /local/flexpage extension New Version: 2011062802
all of the avove provide the same error message stateing it requires:
- block_flexpagenav (2011091602)
- block_flexpagemod (2011050600)
- theme_flexpage (2012062800)
- local_mr (2010090200)
Thank you in advance for your help,
I don't think you are seeing errors - i think what you are seeing is the notification page telling you to complete the install of the plugins.
At the bottom of the page there should be a button to click - i can't remember what it says at the moment. If you click that then moodle will run through the process of adding those plugins and any database tables needed and they should work fine.
Hello Richard - I've just been having a similar problem trying to add the Booking module and also the Facetoface module. They show up on the notifications page saying 'to be installed', but there is no button of any description at the bottom of the page, so can't see what else to do.
It's a brand new installation of moodle which I got installed automatically with a Freehostia hosting account. It's version 2.2+ and a screen shot of the problem is below and any help you can give would be really appreciated, thanks Allison:
Have you unzipped each of the plugins that are required:
If any of those are missing, then that would explain the error message that states that all of them are required.
