    Hi Matthew. Is this plugin able to hide meta-courses; only displaying the child course that the students are enrolled in? If this is not currently available, would it be possible to add this feature?

    Hi there,

    In that scenario would the course that has the meta link enrolment method still be shown to the learner or the origin of the enrolment?
    We currently have no plans to implement this feature but if you wanted to submit a feature request on the github issue tracker and tag it as an enhancement we may look at this in the future.

    Hello,

    Is it possible that the students and teacher's dashboard has this appearance by default to avoid that a user that is not an admin can create the block?

    Thank you.

    Hello Mathew, Hmmm. It is impossible to get this block to work. It doesnt appear in the add block section. (only in the dashboard of the navigation block) I use adaptable as a theme i dont know if this causes the problem. Please help , your block is crucial for my platform look and feel.

    This block does not appear either in my frontpage or course area of my LMS. I have Moodle v3.1 and used Adaptable theme.

    Hi Edmund,
    I installed a clean 3.1 with adaptable and found that the block is working as expected.
    However if the block is not on the list of addable blocks check out this line to allow you to place it anywhere in the site: https://github.com/learningworks/moodle-block_lw_courses/blob/master/block_lw_courses.php#L112

    Regards,
    Matt

    I am having a couple of problems. I love the look of this block. It talks about two layouts, but I don't see how to change between the two. I only have the vertical list layout. I would like to use the horizontal bar layout. Also, my course shows the picture, the description and then says "unset". What field is it looking for? Thanks!

    I found the answer to both questions! Thanks, anyway! Blessed day to all!

    The plugin is quite cool. Mostly the layouts.

    Hi,

    Thank you and congratulations on a great plugin ! smile

    The only limit I could find is that the course summary section does not support multilang filters : I would really like it if users could read the course summary according to their preferred language, (in this case, either French, English or Mandarin Chinese). Is there any way you could do something about this ?

    Thanks for helping,
    Best,

    Yannick

    PS : see how languages mix on this screenshot, (French-speaking user with Mandarin Chinese text) : https://drive.google.com/file/d/15u4XV0Up7rigkAkoe3rJTWx4B4WVEa3X/view?usp=sharing

    Hi Yannick,

    Thank you for the kind words. I have had a play with the multilang filter system and worked on a solution.
    Please download Version 1.5.

    Kind regards,
    Mathew

    Hi Mathew,

    Thanks for adding the multilang filter functionality, works perfectly well ! smile I am back with a new request though : I am using the Generico filter to add a "Read more" toggle link within my courses descriptions, (see frontpage here : https://www.ispa-online.com/?lang=en). The problem is that once users are connected, the "My courses" dashboard shows the full Generico code as can be seen on this screenshot : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hRT_AtvF55UCy61Y9hG6c4HHdJsR7KnJ/view?usp=sharing

    Any trick to fix that ?

    Thanks again for helping and congrats on a great job ! smile
    Best,

    Yannick
