    I know that this has been asked multiple time but I cant find any answers. Please can somebody tell me how I can add an expiry date to a certificate ? Is there anyway that I can also track this expiry date so as to send reminders before it expires? and generate reports?

    Hi, is there a way to digitally sign the pdf certificate according to the PAdEs specifications?

    Moodle version is: 3.5

    I created the certificate template and it is working fine. But when I try "Save changes and preview" it gives HTTP Error 500. It was working fine and suddenly it stopped working. So I uninstalled the older version of plugin 3.4.5 and reinstalled the latest version 3.5.4, but still, the error persists.

    Kindly help to resolve the same.

    Hi Mark,

    I am using Moodle 3.5, I am loving the plugin everything is working great. I am trying to get custom user profile field data onto the certificate but I can't seem to access it. IS there any way this could be added a data field for the plugin? I am trying to add multiple fields like SSN, License # etc.

    -Thank you for all you do!

    I'm wondering anyone has insight into what might be causing a custom certificate to be issued when all of the required criteria have not been met? I've been using this plug in for a few years now with lots of success and this just started in the last few weeks. We cleared out data (as we have done annually for about 4 years) but I'm wondering if the quiz data could be lingering in a way that is being "counted" as completed for purposes of the certificate. Any insight or troubleshooting tips would be appreciated--great plug in!

    Hi, is there a possibility to award the certificate ONLY to the students that received a particular grade in the course's final quiz?

    The alignment issue can be fixed by changing the code a little.

    Moodle Version: 3.5
    File: \mod\customcert\classes\element_helper.php (Line: 107)
    Earlier: $pdf->writeHTMLCell($w, 0, $x, $y, $content, 0, 0, false, true);
    Modified: $pdf->writeHTMLCell($w, 0, $x, $y, $content, 0, 0, false, true, 'C');

    Note: The above code will apply center align for all the elements.

    Hi Mark,
    How to allow this plugin to support Arabic course names and student's Arabic name, currently they are displaying as question marks, it looks like an encoding issue. waiting your advise

    When I changed the font from the font list, I found that some of them are displaying the Arabic Correctly. So is there a way to add more fonts to the list?

    I am about to remove some courses that have generated certificates. Does the plugin still validate certificates after removing that course? In other words: is the information about course completion stored permanently?

    I have installed this plugin and it works fine. I am only stuck with one problem. Can the certificate be issued ONLY to those who secure the required grade in the quiz? I am unable to find this option. Any pointers would be helpful. Thank You. I am using Moodle 3.4.2

    Im so sorry, but the older version was so simple to use. I have to spend so much time designing templates for a simple certificate.

    Could the generated document be digitally signed with the digital certificate of the company?
