This plugin simply displays Moodle's course search form in a block. With the advent of global search, we wanted to give admins a quick way of searching for course titles or codes without having to wade through course content.

This block can be added to the site homepage or to the dashboard.

Because it uses the core course renderer to output the form, you can override the layout in your theme.

    Hi Ricardo, it should be good to go. I've updated the versions it'll work on.

    Is it compatible with 3.9+ version of Moodle?

    Is this plugin good to use for moodle 3.9?

    We are using this block, that is very simple and does exactly what we need and it seems to be compatible with Moodle 3.9 versions while replacing the version parameter in version.php file.
    It would be great from the developper to implement that modification to make that plugin officially compatible with Moodle 3.9 (and hopefully also Moodle 3.10)

    Hi There, I would like to use this plug in on Moodle 3.9. The problem I have run into is that it will only work if global search is unchecked. I need the plug in to work even if global search is enabled. How can I fix this issue.
    Thank you
