Extends the Moodle question bank to find questions which are / are not used in a quiz.

This may be useful when adding questions to a quiz - no need to add questions which are already in the quiz.

It may also be useful to determine if some questions should be removed or moved, since they aren't being used.

    Hi Ray, that code seems so simple but it is a really nice improvement to the quiz editing interface - great work! I can see it being something that would be accepted as a core feature at some point (coded slightly differently and not as a local plugin though)

    Couple of things you might want to think about
    1) The description and screenshots you've added here don't really do the plugin justice and I had to install it to understand what it really did.

    2) in lib.php function init() there is a call to global $DB but $DB isn't used.

    3) in lib.php $this->onlyused is set in the _construct() function but it is undefined at the class level, you might want to add a "protected $onlyused" at the top of the class or something similar.

    4) You may want to improve the phpdocs a little - running it through the automated check tool at:

    The only really important item in that list is probably 1) above.

    great work!

    Hi Ray, I am looking for this plugin for my site on Moodle 2.9. When would the version for 2.9 be released? Thanks!

    What a great plugin - saved the day.
