    Thanks again Tim. I was able to successfully test the functionality of the plugin and did not spot any issues with the code that would prevent me from approving this now. You are cleared to land, welcome to the Plugins directory.

    Tim I've installed the plugin and all checked ok. However it does not show in the plugins on site administration. Moodle 3.1

    Gordon, it should appear in Site admin > Plugins > Availability restrictions > Manage restrictions, if installed properly.

    I'm getting error_selectbadge all of a sudden when it was working fine earlier.
    debug messages:
    line 7078 of /lib/moodlelib.php: call to core_string_manager_standard->get_string()
    line 184 of /availability/classes/frontend.php: call to get_string()
    line 425 of /course/moodleform_mod.php: call to core_availability\frontend::report_validation_errors()

    line 619 of /lib/formslib.php: call to moodleform->is_validated()
    line 150 of /course/modedit.php: call to moodleform->get_data()

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Running Moodle 3.2.2 (Build: 20170313)

    It seems this plugin is no longer receiving attention. Still not working on current version of Moodle (3.2). That's a great pity it was useful.

    When will this be Moodle 3.3 compatible so we can install it with composer?

    Any upgrade to MOODLE 3.4 ?

    Hi Tim,

    I've been using availability_badge for a couple of months now and it's been great. It would be even better if the restriction on the course page could be transformed into a link to the badges page, to help get students used to badges functionality in Moodle. Sometimes when a student has no idea of what a badge is, it can be too restrictive and frustating. Do you think that's doable? Any workaround maybe?

    is this plugin discontinued? (as I am writing, the last version of Moodle is 3.7...)
  • Sun, Jul 5, 2020, 9:09 PM
    Would love for this to be certified for 3.8 LTS!

    Hello there,
    Thanks for your useful plugin.
    Is there anyway to consider restriction if the badge is expired? In current situation it doesn't matter if the badge is expired or not.

    Thanks & Regards 🙌🏻

    As per other comments, this would be brilliant if this plugin could be updated for newer versions of Moodle, and as per Hoda's suggestion, if the enrolment could also recognise when a badge expires and then suspend the user at that point in time - this would be very powerful.
