    Can anyone tell me why NOTIFICATIONS to a suspended user is sent for changes in the course he was enrolled to ?
  • Thu, Oct 22, 2015, 8:56 PM

    The notification is sent to tall the user enrolled in the course. If you don't want the user to get the notifications you have to remove it from the course.

    Is there any alternative to this ? as I have lot many people in a common course and I have suspended them recently. It was a huge task .
    Please help

    Same people are enrolled at various course so ultimately removing them one by one from all courses will take huge time and their data will also get erased

    I don't know what do you mean for suspended. As far as I know this is not something implemented in the moodle platform. I don't think there is an alternative solution to this.

    Hi Goran
    It is a tool in Moodle only with the help of which you can retain info about a USER and bar him to login in moodle

    I have pushed the new version which should solve your issue. The notifications should not be sent to the suspended users anymore. Let me know if you have issues.

    Hi, How to upgrade
    I have already installed this for some course and if I uninstall and re install it then I will have to re configure this block for all those courses

    Thank you, I could find it through

    You can upgrade the usual way. You don't have to uninstall the plugin first. You just download the new one and replace the blocks/notifications folder with the new content.

    Or you could substitute the classes/Users.php file:
    This would now upgrade the version but you would have the last version block functionalities.

    I've just installed this block which would appear to do what I want, but have an issue with the feed: When I attempt to create a feed in my reader, I get the message "XML parsing error: :6:28: undefined entity" which relates the the course description. This appears to refer the the course description which is surrounded by the tag .... Is this an error that I can correct? (Perhaps the html formatting of the course description?)
  • Mon, Oct 26, 2015, 8:21 AM
    Didn't think about the tag being removed, so I didn't escape it. the tag and the beginning and end are the description and /description html tags.

    Does this block send email notifications to users once content (Activities/Resources/Sections) becomes unrestricted? In other words, does Moodle treat content that has a restriction applied to it (e.g. by Grade, Date, Activity Completion etc) as new content once it becomes unrestricted?
