    Hi Justin,

    Do you think we can add a field with this plug-in and Generico. My suggestion is to display a text with a link to help user. For example with awesome font, it will be good to have a texte somewhere like :
    "Choose your icon here :"
    What do you think ?

    Best regards.

    This is another great suggestion. I think we do need this. I will add this shortly. Thanks

    Hello !

    We have been upgrading our Moodle last week and I have discovered the new Atto parameter that enables administrators to choose the icon.
    Many many thanks for french speaking users :-*

    Thank for your last update. Do you think we can improve again field with the "help text" ?
    My idea is to skip lines to improve readability. But
    tag is not taken into account now.

    Maybe we could do that. I wonder why it doesn't register
    ? I don't think I will be able to look at this for a while tough. But thanks for the idea.

    Hi Justin,
    My name is Carlos Chiarella and I work in the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Canada. We are using the Generico plugin. We were wondering how is the best way to contact you. We will like to to do some customisations for this plugin. If we can talk by Skype and we can explain our requirements that will be great. Also if you can quote your work for doing the customization.

    There seems to be a problem with the personnalised Generico icon since Moodle 3.3 upgrade.
    The Icon is not found.

    Any suggestion ?

    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

    Hello...I have installed everything and none of the templates are working in my lesson pages...Moodle 3.8

    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.

    You need o add eh word "generico" to the CSV list of icons at : Site administration -> Plugins -> Text editors -> Atto- > Atto Toolbar Settings
