    Should work fully in M2.7 (no problems spotted when I gave it a quick test)

    When I restore a course from a backup without user data the students from the previous section still appear in the checklist block for the teachers. Once I go to the settings for the block and re-save then the students disappear. This has been an issue in all of the versions we've used.

    Hi, I suspect this is due to the block still being linked to the original checklist, rather than getting matched up to the new courses's copy of the checklist. Should be a fairly simple fix, now it has been reported to me.

    Jon - that should now be fixed.

    Davo, do you know of any way to show some sort of cross courses view with this? I was at a meeting on Friday and was asked about this: maybe a page with a drop down to choose a course for person X out of a qualification.

    Derek - it is not currently possible to do that with the checklist block. It would probably not be that difficult to develop such functionality. However, I would be unlikely to have time to write it, unless there was funding available, so I can do it as part of my day job.

    I upgraded this block to $plugin->version = 2015010100; on my new Moodle 2.9+ installation. When in the grid course format the checklists in the block show through the shadow box that opens up when I click a topic. Here is the forum link to the post I made which shows a picture.

    I'm not sure why the checklist bars are all different colours - that suggests that someone has made some customisations to the checklist output. I suggest you check with the person who made those changes. Either way, it looks like a z-order issue, you will need to adjust the z-order value in the CSS for either the checklist bars to the overlay that should appear on top of them.

    Thanks for the helpful hint. I got it figured out. And yes my school district has been heavily using the checklist for years and I tweak the output every time we upgrade to be a different color depending on the percentage complete. Sorry to bother you with this question but thanks for the help.
    100% green
    90% blue
    80% orange
    70% purple
    60% yellow <60% red

    Dunno if it's just me but everytime I upgrade the checklist module to the newer version it corrupts the existing checklists. I have to uninstall the checklist block and checklist module each time and reinstall it to get everything working again. It's just a pain as I have to setup all the checklists again for all my courses.

    This has happened everytime I upgrade to the newer version for the past 2 or 3 upgrades now.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Sorry I forgot to take a screenshot of the error.

    Nevermind I figured it out.

    Turns out it was just a file permissions setting error whenever I upgraded the plugin. Weird.

    First, I have to say this is a great tool. Thank you.
    We have installed the checklist activity and block in all of our courses (175+ courses)
    My question is why some courses would display two blocks, when there is only one checklist activity?
    Any ideas?

    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.
