Generico for Moodle Atto

* This version fixes a bug with the drop down list implementation released 3 days prior. The bug prevented forms being auto created in the Atto Generico popup. *

This is a companion for the Moodle Generico filter. It will display a button and a form for each Generico filter template you have declared.
It will not work without the Generico Filter. You *must* install that first or at the same time.

1. Download
Download the plugin from:

2 Unzip / Rename / Upload
Expand (unzip) the zip file.

Rename the main folder to "generico." It should contain all the files like "version.php."

Upload the "generico" folder into the folder

[PATH TO MOODLE]/lib/editor/atto/plugins

3. Get Moodle to Install It
Visit Settings > Site Administration > Notifications, and let Moodle guide you through the install.

4. Configure it
Go to Site Administration > Plugins > Text Editors > Atto Toolbar Settings

Now add Generico to the menu structure near the bottom of the page

e.g style1 = title, bold, italic, generico

(where widget is the name of your atto plugin)

Thats all. The Generico icon, a big grey G. should now appear on the Atto HTML editor toolbar. When you click it, Generico will give you a list of all the templates. Click the one you want and Generico will build a nice form for you to help you insert it.
