This block displays recently awarded course and site badges from all users.

You can choose if the block should display only course or site badges or both. For course badges there is an option to display also the name of the user the badge was awarded to.

Badges can be displayed with a big or a small icon.

Moodle 2.9+ and badges enabled.

The zip-archive includes the same directory hierarchy as moodle.
So you only have to copy the files to the correspondent place.
Copy the folder bs_recent_badges to moodle/blocks/bs_recent_badges.
The langfiles normaly can be left into the folder moodle/blocks/bs_recent_badges/lang.
All languages should be encoded with utf8.

After it you have to run the admin-page of moodle (http://your-moodle-site/admin)
in your browser. You have to loged in as admin before.
The installation process will be displayed on the screen.
That's all.

You can setup the plugin by going to Site administration --> Plugins --> Blocks --> Recent badges.

    Thanks Matthias for sharing this block with the community. I found it working as documented and did not spot any major problems in the code itself. Please find some minor suggestions for improvements reported into your issues tracker. You are cleared to land, welcome to the Plugins directory!

    Hi Matthias, the recent badges aren't showing on the Front Page, any ideas? Version 3.1 Thanks!

    Love the idea of badges but pointless to issue them if you cannot share them to Social Media

    There is now an updated version of this plugin available for the latest versions of Moodle.
    Sorry for waiting so long, but there wasn´t much time in the last two years. I will try to update my plugins consistently from now on.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH @Matthias Schwabe smile

    After I looked at your other plugin, I was looking for "hey.. what if I'd like to display a realtime updates of who got badges recently" and you already made it!

    You made my day! :D

    Good morning, thanks for your plugin, it has been very useful for our center.

    Do you plan to make the version compatible with moodle 3.8?

    Thank you very much and greetings
