This plugin allows the Moodle administrator to define as many correction types as wanted (e.g. orthographic error, pronoun error, capitalization, etc.). Buttons in the Atto editor then allow users to make inline marks in texts.

    Thanks for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. Some formal issues were detected and reported by our automated plugin checker tool. Please review all the plugin checker results and fix the issues mentioned, if possible. These changes are typically pretty easy to make but if you have any questions just let us know.

    Please resolve these formal issues so that the plugin code can be fully reviewed and approved by my human colleagues.

    Hi Nicolas. Thanks for sharing your atto plugin. It looks like really promising and useful tool. Unfortunatelly, it can't be
    approved yet.

    Your lang/en/atto_corrections.php contains French strings. Also, the settings.php file has hard-coded French strings. This is an
    approval blocker as we require all plugins in the directory having localization support with the native language set to English.

    Your README file could be extended and provide the information currently available as the descriptionof the plugin here (potentially
    elaborated). Also note, README file should not contain the PHP docs block. If nothing else, it does not look good at your github
    repository page currently.

    Let me suggest to provide additional screenshot to illustrate how a text with corrections looks after saving the form.

    For now, I am going to mark this plugin as needing more work until we get these issues resolved. Thanks for your patience with the
    review and approval process.

    Nicolas, I can't see the hard-coded French strings fixed in the available version. Maybe you did not upload the new version?

    Sorry for not reacting more promptly, and thanks for the reminder. I've corrected the issues you mentioned and uploaded a new version.

    Hi Nicolas,
    I am afraid that the default corrections types that are shown in your plugin configuration page ( are hard-coded.

    Even though I translated all the available strings in AMOS, the defaults inside the box are still showing in French !.

    Also, could you please write some instructions for lay person for getting this add-on to work after having installed it in 2.7 ?

    Hi German,

    No, they're not. I just double checked by downloading the 2014050200 version available here. And I see that this string is indeed translated to es_mx in AMOS ( ). Can you try to empty the caches of your Moodle server? And check the settings.php file of the plugin: there should be no French in it smile

    As for the installation instructions, I just updated the README file, see it on the "Source control URL" link above. Please tell me if that looks sufficient to you.

    I tried this plugin and it works perfectly - it looks really good. It looks like it would be extremely useful for marking assignments in language courses.

    For anyone having trouble with installing it - just make sure you add it to the atto toolbar configuration after installing the plugin.

    Yes, I made it for our language teachers who like to give inline corrections in texts submitted by students.
