    Thanks German for the notice, I've just corrected it in the latest version on GitHub (see "Source control URL" link above).

    any way to add a link/button to return to the course? users are not sure how to get back. the breadcrumbs are not obvious enough.

    Hello Mike,
    I consider this hasn't to be done within the plugin (most plugins don't do this), but rather with the theme. If the breadcrumbs are not usable enough for any reason, you could consider using another theme or adapting the one you're using.

    I have another problem: When viewing choices made, selecting a student and trying to delete his group choice with "Choose an action..." and "Delete", I get a blank page at the same address. The student is not removed from the group.

    Could you try updating to the latest version (1.4.4, Build 2014010100) and confirm the bug still exists?

    This is a great module - I'm running 2.6.2 and can't seem to add any numbers to either the general limit or the group size. Here's a screenshot:

    Any tips on what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi Bonnie,

    I just saw from your PM that you have figured it out. Here it is for consistency's sake: the "Limit the number of responses allowed" setting has to be set.

    Backup and Restore doesn't work with Moodle 2.5.4 (mod_choicegroup_moodle26_2014010100)

    The Activity is restored, but choice options is nil, and responses is 0 too.

    Hi Nicolas, Great plugin! using it very well!

    I just wanted to ask if there is a way to re-arrange the order of choices once they are created?


    choice 1
    choice 2
    choice 3

    now if I want to add a choice called 'choice 1.2', this will appear below 'choice 3'.

    I don't mind if we have to move the choices manually or if they are alphabetical, just that they can be re-arranged.
