    Just tried this out - excellent plugin - thank you. But...the course name is replaced by the short name entered on screen on creation.

    Found that line 29 in process.php references short name instead of full name but apparently it also incorrect in lib.php somewhere. Would appreciate any help on a fix. BTW, using on 3.3 - seems to work otherwise!

    Hi Emma, Thanks a lot for the information regarding m33 and the bug
    @version m33: I have updated the version compatibility. The plugin is now available up to moodle 3.3
    @bug: This is a custom feature we implemented for a client. In their case, they always entered the same value for short and long name and asked us to only ask for the short name and to just populate the db for long and short name both with it. When we put it into the moodle db we only partly removed this specific customization. We will check it and publish a new version asap.

    Thanks Flotter - I will be testing 3.4 shortly and will report back. If you could let me know when the corrected version is published, that would be great.

    When a course is created using a template, in the long name and short name form, there should be start and end date, as well. The template start and end dates should be displayed (if temp has no end date, no need) and admin can create a course with new dates.
