    It gets stuck on "Validating Local_Mr". It does not move further. I have been trying to install for so many times but not being able to install it.
    Kindly help, if possible...

    There have been issues reported with installing the MR Framework through Moodle's UI because the MRF is a rather large plugin to install. Is that the same issue you are experiencing? If so, please install the plugin under your Moodle webroot. If not, please report the issue with more details in using the Moodlerooms Framework component.

    Will this (and other MR plugins) be updated for Moodle 3?

    Installing through the main plugins interface takes a while or otherwise freezes at some point of validating local_mr. I overcame this by installing the framework using the ftp method. Unzip the moodlerooms framework into root/local folder so it looks pretty mush like root/local/mr. Goodluck.

    This plugin has consistently corrupted my installation, even after adding and removing directly from the local folder via FTP, seems stuck in an upgrade loop that i cant terminate. Very frustrating.

    Hi Jesse - that sounds very strange. Have you lodged a bug report with additional information, including the Moodle Core version you're using and the steps to reproduce?

    Hi there. Does this plugin work with Moodle 3.3? I'm trying to install the flexpage-plugins but always stuck with this plugin. While installation there is: "checking local_mr ..." but nothing happens. No button occurs, no error message. (I have a german moodle, so I don't know if I translated the statement correctly.) Can anybody please help?

    Hi Jose Oliva,

    You need first a proper configured FTP connection with enough permissions to access the Moodle root folder and just move the new plugin folder (mr) to moodle/local location.

    Best regards,

    HI Vectoria. Installation of an FTP connection will depend on your server OS. You can find online a lot of tutorials on how to do that depending on your OS.
