    I've installed this 2.2 version on Moodle 2.4.1 and it seems to work fine for me.

    Hi Juan, we are using this plug-in and getting the following error in 2.5.3.

    "PHP Notice: Deprecated local plugin navigation callback: Please rename 'anonymousposting_extends_navigation' to 'local_anonymousposting_extends_navigation'. Support for the old callback will be dropped after the release of 2.4"

    Is there any plan to update this plug-in for 2.5 or later?

    Hi Juan,
    We are using Moodle V 3.2. Are there plans to produce a v3.2 compatible version ?
