    Hi Mark
    I am running Moodle 3.5.1 and when I installed your plugin ( in mod folder ) and after adding to course I go into the custom cert and select the cog wheel to edit custom cert. The problem is I do not see any of the standard elements and can not add them or others. What am I missing?

    Having some problems with this module. There are two issues that are likely related. We have created a certificate template and added a Custom Cert activity module to a test course however the certificate is a blank page. We deleted the template and recreated it, no change. We then duplicated the template however there doesn't appear to be anywhere to select the template you want to use for a specific course.

    Hello Mark,
    Thank you for your great work in this one, Custom Certificate is for sure one of my favourite plugins. I am just wondering are there any plans to make it compatible with Moodle Mobile app? smile

    I'm after some advice please if there is anyone who knows how to embed a custom font easily.

    For ex: i have a custom font Helvetica LT of which i have converted into a .afm & .php and .z file.

    I have followed the guidelines on where to install for ex: root/lib/tcpdf/fonts

    Now, when i go into the settings and choose the font i have pout in there, it works in the fact that it displays form the font drop down....

    You can see is on Re position Elements, However......a Big BUT

    When you save changes and preview it throws out an error!

    Exception - TCPDF ERROR: Could not include font definition file: helvetica neue

    Does anyone know a simple enough way in how to embed a custom font as this is very frustrating..........the guidelines should be simple but whoever has tested that method has not tested it properly thus errors occurring.

    It would be greatly appreciated if there are any work arounds for this....

    Thank you in advance

    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?

    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?
