    Thanks for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. I am happy to see you are working to contribute a variety of themes and blocks with the community and appreciate your patience with the review process. I realize that there are many details but you are quite close. Similar to some of the others, please specify the version of Moodle for which the version of the plugin is intended to be used with. Also consider renaming the Github repository to moodle-block_search_course to conform with the Moodle naming convention for repositories. It is a small detail but helps site administrators have a consistent experience when working with plugins. For now, I am going to mark this as needing more work. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to be supportive of your efforts. Peace - Anthony

    Using course finder as a block in the left
    Anel on th3 dasboard. Nice!
    Though one improvement would be usefull: when pushing ond the search button in the block, it opens in the center without results. You have to push the sea4ch button again. This behaviour give the impression that nothing is found. I suggest that one push on the button would be nice to get the results.
