You always can get latest version of block from:
I changed the date format to m/d/y
I re-wrote some of the instructions, particularly on the attforblock.php file
I did not know exactly how to name the folders--en_us, I know. What is en_us_utf8?? You can change that if you want to use these files.
Thank you for a terrific block!
I have just downloaded the attendance block - seems excellent. However - there's always a clause - when I try to use the multiple session i get the following error message:
Warning: in_array(): Wrong datatype for second argument in d:\users\xxxxxxxxx\public_html\moodle\blocks\attendance\add.php on line 88
|Sessions successfully generated|
Also in the multiple sessions section, if I select a session start date eg 1st Sept 2006 until 31st May 2007 do I have to specify the period and if so can I only do 8 weeks at a time?
Thanks in anticipation
nice work Dmitry. block works fine using 1.6.1+ im sure ppl are excited by the potential functionality of your 'to do' list:
2. Group mode (separated attendance for each group)
3. Periods and multiply session on the same day
5. Self taking attendance for students
Has anyone else noticed that the surname does not appear in the report.php and the updateAttendance.php ?
Good work Dmitry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can I just copy the folders over the top of the old folders to upgrade? Do I need to do anything else?
We use this block for our registration everyday so I can't afford for it to go wrong! It is always backed up but I can't do with the hassle of restoring it if it goes wrong
I am trying to integrate your attendace module. But, the link that you provide (http://download.moodle.org/download.php/modules/block_attendance.zip) misses a few important files like mod.html and version.php, totally preventing installations.
Please advise soon. Thanks,
Please, read installation instructions in "read me" file!
Thanks so much! It works just NICELY. "Good job!"
P.S. Here is a screen shot
P.P.S. Sorry, I managed to figure this out even before the 30 minute editing period on my post was up. I had forgotten to copy the language files over. There I go again posting questions before I've explored all the options Sorry.
Just wondering if you can help.
When dumping the attendance results to an excel spreadsheet, the "Student id" column is not what I want to see. In my situation I would like the attendance module to grab the "ID number" from the students personal profile instead.
Can someone tell me how to do this?
I'm a "nuff nuff" when it comes to PHP so I really require a step by step and itemised instructions on what I need to do
Thanks in anticipation
I have installed your component and everything works just fine except I am gatting the error A required parameter was missing when i try to access the link Attendances (for Block)
Thanks a lot.
I get the same error message but only when I click on the "Attendances (for Block)" link that shows up in the Activities block. I have no problem with the attendance block if I access it from the attendance block via the "Take Attendance" link or from the top center block where I have placed it in my course. So for now I'm just working around what seems to be a small bug I guess...
I am using the latest version of the attendance block and couldn't live without it. Thanks to Dmitry for this work.
I am having a strange issue however, with grading. When I take attendance the subsequent scores do not get immediately reported to the gradebook. For example, if I take attendance and then right after taking attendance if I go to my gradebook and look at the scores, the points for attendance show everything up do the day before the one I just took attendance for. So if I have class on Monday and Thursday and I take attendance on Thursday and then check the gradebook I only see the scores for attendance up to Monday.
If I wait for a while (not sure how long yet, sorry) the data shows up. I've checked my time settings and everything there seems to be ok...
I posted this once before but thought I'd try again. When I click on the "Attendances (for Block)" link that appears in the Activities block I get the "A required parameter was missing" error and then when I click the OK button I get sent to my Moodle front page. I recently had this same error with the Gallery2 integration module (see here) and it was fixed very quickly so I'm wondering if this is a small coding mistake (unfortunately I don't have the knowhow to investigate )
Any help will be appreciated.
P.S. I have v1.0.8 installed
I fix it in the near future.
attached is sk_utf8 language file for the module.
Do you know approximately when you will release update of the module for Moodle 1.7? The actual version under 1.7 shows teachers among the list of participants (all participants, no groups).
keep up the great work
