    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!

    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,

    Hi again, another solution for the above mentioned problem might be to allow for a zero character-long course description (i.e. no description shown in the dashboard). This would prevent the Generico code from appearing within the dashboard course descriptions... Thanks for helping !

    Hello,

    I really love this plugin. It is clean and I love the features that are a part of this plugin. I am having a problem though. The progress bar always stays at 0%. I set everything to completion progress as the user goes, and it still doesn't move. How can I fix this issue?
