The User tours plugin allows administrators to create user tours of Moodle, which are visual and positional step by step guides.

Tours can be created for a wide range of purposes: to guide new users around the interface, to introduce new features, highlight important information, and more.

It is also enabled to cater for multilingual content if required using the multi-lang filters.

This work was paid for and sponsored by the kind folk of Dublin City University - http://www.dcu.ie/

    Hello,
    Trying to reach the user tours repository at - https://moodle.net/mod/data/view.php?id=17
    but nothing there.
    Maybe you could refer me to the right location?
    Thank you for Amazing tool

    Hello,
    I may have missed this, but is there a way to preview a tour if you don't have a test server to run it on?

    Hi David Campbell,

    You could try and login as admin to here: https://demo.moodle.net/admin/tool/usertours/configure.php and give it a try.

    Hi, I just created 3 user tours on moodle 3.2 but I can't seem to download them and import them into my second site. When I download the original tour the import is also not working. Please advice.

    Tested downloading a Tour from repository, the import of this file worked. When exporting this file and validating it with JSONLint the file gave an error, also the upload didn't work anymore. PS We use a slightly modified version of boost theme.

    Hi,

    I wonder if there's a possibility to embed videos in the tours? Thank you!

    Great Plugin!

    If you want to highlight multiple (duplicate) CSS elements on page without having a popover for each (most likely overlapping), you can add in this CSS.

    I noticed that when you select an element by CSS and more than one element matches, although a popover is rendered for each, only the first has an ID assigned (ie. id="step-6"). All other matching elements thereafter are exactly the same in all ways, except there is no id assign.

    So:
    /** Set opacity to 0 (transparent) for all popover elements that don't have a valid id. display: none; breaks positioning so using opacity. **/
    .popover[class*="tour-"]:not([id^='step-']) {
    opacity: 0;
    }
    /** Bring the first (showing) popover to the front so that user can use navigation **/
    .popover[class*="tour-"][id*="step-"] {
    z-index: 10000;
    }

    There is probably a better way, but thought I'd share in case anyone else trying to achieve the same thing.

    Hi,
    I have 2 quick question.
    If we upgrade the moodle version to 3.2 and the plugin is installed in the previóus moode, is the tours converted to the core tours?.
    If we uninstall the localplugin, will it delete the content in the database - the tables seems to have the same names.?

    I'm using this plug in on Moodle 3.1.6 and cannot get the tour to work on the front page. Any suggestions or anyone had the same problem? I've made it the first User Tour of my list of tours, and for my URL Applies to I've tried using "FRONTPAGE" "frontpage" "Front Page" "/index.php" and "/course/view.php?id=1" and none of these will activate the tour. The only thing in the tour a 'Display in the middle of the page' Welcome message. Any thoughts?

    Is there any way to customize the "reset user tour on this page" link? I'll explain my idea: I want to create a button on the page that allows user to start the user tour. I've tried using the same link that appears on the bottom of the page, but it doesn't work; it reloads the page, but the user tour doesn't start.

    vg:
    Moodle: 3.1
    Language: español.

    Would it be possible to allow hiding/disabling steps within a user tour? Right now you can only delete steps within tours.

    Hi,
    I'd like to fix a tour in a way users can't skip it, is it possible?
    Users should see all the tour before working on moodle.
    Thank you in advance.
