    Is there anyway to enable image support with choice. For example allow a image to be selected for each choice option?

    Hi Matthew, sorry for the time being there is no such option.

    Hi Nicolas, Does Group Choice work in Moodle 2.4?
  • Mon, Jan 7, 2013, 5:56 PM
    Hi Per, I haven't had time to test this on Moodle 2.4 yet.

    Hai Nicolas,

    I am using GroupChoice and i discover a big problem.

    When i choose for using the profilefield "Tag" must contain e.g. H2A then GroupChoice crashes!
    And all the pages with links to that course crashes too.
    Not funny sad

    Second, another bug: i can't choose a grouping. That dropdownmenu with groupings isn't there.

    In addition to the former message: i am using Moodle 2.4

    When using Moodle 2.4.1+...

    When setting up a Group Choice there is an option "Allow choice to be updated" which when set to No results in an unhelpful message. A further result of this is that students can no longer check which group they are in via the Group Choice link.

    Your choice has been saved

    Testing Group Choice

    Your selection: 67 <--- This makes no sense
    The results are not currently viewable

    another bug that we have noticed...

    When presented with the Group Choice, there is a column in the table labelled Group Members with a plus icon below it. Clicking on the plus should display all the people who have signed up for a group and which group they are in. However, clicking on this does not seem to do anything.

    The offending code appears to be on line 50 of renderer.php

    Hi Mark and Kees,
    Sorry I just saw your posts. Could you try the lastest version from GitHub (see "Source control URL" link higher up on this page) and confirm these problems still exist?

    I'm trying this addon, and I can confirm the issue with the grouping droplist.

    I'm using 2.2, and I got the code from Github rev: 947134be3f5d2d758c3067bb573042bc7dcae570

    2.3.1 and 2.5 . After filling in the setup details it tells me that "There are required fields in this form marked " when i try to save it. In fact I have completed the compulsory section. Please advise

    Have you created any groups in your course? Groups need to exist for students to be able to chose one within this activity.

    I have found a bug.

    Hi Nicholas,

    Just wanted to say that we're really pleased with your plugin at the University of Kent; this is invaluable and should ideally be a core feature. We've just upgraded to 2.4 and I've created an SVG icon for the plugin, which I thought you might find useful. You can find it here:

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks a lot for the icon, I'll include it in the next release.
