    Adele - there is no limit on how many checklist blocks you can add to a course. If you've added the block twice (or added it at the site top level and set it to be shown in every course, then added it directly to some courses as well), then it will appear twice.

    Hello Davo, Thanks for the plugin! Is this plugin working with moodle 2.9.1+? I want to do the upgrade but i am afraid that this plugin doesn't work. Thanks!

    Paula - looks to be working fine (just clicked through to a course with it on and clicked on a few links in the block). I'll update the entry.

    Would not it be nice to celebrate the Moodle 3.0 release by adding some screenshot here? smile

    How can I force the checklist to display fully expanded on the homepage? Right now I see "You have checklists that require your attention" and then I have to click to expand. Can this be modified? Thank you!

    Matt - you will need to take a look at the core code that handles the collapsed regions. The checklist module plays no part in the collapsing, it just provides the content to put within the collapsed region.

    You may be able to do something with a CSS3 selector to override the styling of collapsing regions within an overview div with '_checklist' in the id.

    Hi -- We installed the latest Checklist block build on our Moodle 2.7.11 site (Build: 2015122300). I noticed a minor issue. The labels for the block's capabilities appear to be switched:

    The capability label for adding the block to the My Home page -- block/checklist:myaddinstance -- is currently "Add new Checklist block"

    The capability label for adding the block to a course page -- block/checklist:addinstance -- is currently "Add Checklist block to My Moodle page"

    I think this should be the other way around.

    Thanks for the plugin and block -- they're very nice. -- Brian

    Thanks, Brian.

    I've swapped the strings on github and it will be fixed next time I push a new version out to the plugins list here.

    The order of the activities in the block ('All activities with completion set') is different from the order of the activities in the course. How can I obtain the same order ?
    Thank you

    The checklist block doesn't display any activities - it only displays an overall progress bar for a checklist activity.

    The checklist activity itself displays the activities it finds in the course in the same order that they are found in the course.

    I did a copy of the course and you could access as a guest to visualize the situation :

    Accueil / CFP Québec / Zone d'essais (CFPQ) / Checklists

    Thank you

    @Daniel - sorry for the slow reply (I've been travelling a lot in the last couple of weeks, so not kept on top of messages). The sorting for the block in 'overview' mode is as follows:
    * Started, but incomplete checklists (ordered from least complete, to most complete), then
    * Unstarted checklists (0%), then
    * Completed checklists (100%)

    A maximum of 20 checklists are shown and the ordering of checklists that have the same completion % is undefined (for MySQL it is likely to be the order they were created, for other DB systems, it may not be).

    As the overview works across multiple courses, there is no simple way to order the checklists with identical completion % in the same order that they would appear within a course.
