    I'm having the same problem that Zabelle has, but also only the "Welcome user" template was loaded. I have manually created the accordion template and is working fine., bit I would like to save time by having the G icon otion on my text editor.
    For your information, I am ussing Generico and Generico atto icon plugins on Moodle 3.4 and I have selected the Atto text editor as default.

    Please your help.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have installed the "generico" filter plugin and "generico_atto_icon". Later, in the text editor, I also wrote "style3 = generico" in the text editing bar... but I am unable to see the G icon

    Are you using TinyMCE or Atto? Generico only has an Atto plugin right now.

    To show G icon you must add it at Atto Editor opcions (/admin/settings.php?section=editorsettingsatto), for example:

    files = image, media, recordrtc, managefiles, generico

    Mark, you probably just need to enable the Generico filter. Go to site admin - plugins - filters - manage filters

    I also tried installing the Generico Atto plugin at a Moodle 3.8 version and nothing shows up at the Atto editor.

    Hi Justin
    Do you have any idea when this will be ready?. We are shifting back and forth between Atto and Tiny as it is now, but would love to be able to have the Generico Icon on the toolbar in Tiny smile

    Hi Flemming, it is available now at:

    You can download a zip file to install from there, or use git if you prefer. I will upload it to in the next day or two. It might take some time to be approved (..or it might not).

    Hi Justin,

    Using latest version 4.2 in Moodle 4.3 does not show the icon. Anything to do with it? Or that it needs an update?

    I also used the tiny link provided above, it shows and I can enter the background as per, the code is inserted, but the background is not showing.

    I am trying to use it on the front page, it is not showing, I tried it also on the course level, but it did not show as well.

    Any suggestions?

    Check that the html editor on your Moodle 4.3 is actually "Atto", because by default is is "Tiny." That might explain why the icon does not show.
    As for the background image, i don't know. Please post questions in the forum linked to above. ie
