    A question please if i may, i have installed this on my build, its 2.9, but when i try to add a certificate, there is no option to restrict access, like only available to those who get over 70%
    I know it works on one of my other sites of i think build 3, but problem is with this build it doesnt allow password resets.

    I have only two options on adding a certificate, Options and Common module settings, so a few options missing, what am i doing wrong?

    TIA smile

    Thanks for the link Mark, but i think whats happened is the plugin hasnt for some reason put the extra options in. A key one is "Add Restriction", which is where you can select the quiz and set it to only offer the certificate for scores of scores of 70%. On some of my builts it shows, but not on the one i am using atm. Its Moodle 2.9 but i have another about that version and the plug works.

    Scrap that last question thanks Mark, you're right, i found it in advanced features. For those unsure, Activity Completion needs to be enabled in there and Restricted Access. Pheeeww! thanks all (great plugin Mark!)

    Hi Mark,

    I'm using moodle v3.1.1 with simple certificate version 2.2.6 (Build: 2017091800) and custom certificate version 3.3 release (Build: 2017050508).

    When I present the Grade for a Quiz activity using simple certificate the grade is shown as correct.

    But when I present the Grade for the same Quiz activity using custom certificate the grade shown is incorrect.

    I'd prefer to use the Custom Certificate, any ideas why they might be showing a different grade?

    Cheers

    Peter.

    Hello
    Can someone point me to the language file where I can modify the body of the email that is sent when email student is enabled?

    Currently it says:

    "Dear
    Attached is your certificate '' for the course
    ''.

    I'm sure I'm just overlooking it--thanks!

    And of course I found it right after I posted my question. The answer if other are looking is mod > mod_customcert > emailstudentbody
    Thanks! Great plugin!

    Hi Peter - can you please create an issue on https://github.com/markn86/moodle-mod_customcert/issues with step-by-step instructions so that I can replicate it (eg. go to the gradebook and give a student 50 in the course etc). Once I can replicate it I will create a fix ASAP.

    Hi Tiffany - glad you were able to sort it out.

    Hi Mark, this looks great! But I can't find a way of stopping it showing the moodle site title as a separate text element (when I add the Course Name element). A tickbox to hide it would be great, or I'll have to go and hack the code myself (trying it on moodle 2.9, as my test 3.1 installation seems broken by a PHP7 upgrade and I've not had time to fix it yet - our live site is 3.1).

    Followup - it would be nice if there could be a padding setting between the page and and the border being drawn - but this is less of an issue than the site name displaying as per my previous comment. If you like, I can file feature requests using github

    Hi Dave,

    Can't say I have run into that issue before. If you have a look at https://github.com/markn86/moodle-mod_customcert/blob/MOODLE_31_STABLE/element/coursename/classes/element.php#L49 you can see that it simply outputs the courses full name. Are you able to discover the value of $course before it gets passed to render_content?

    Re: Padding - yes, please create a separate issue on github for that, even better would be to also provide a patch. smile

    Hello everyone, we have this great plugin on our training site and our certs now look ace!

    In order to track client trainees I've been trying to make a small change to the email that sends a copy of a trainee's certificate.
    Currently the text says:
    "Hi

    Attached is the certificate 'Certificate of Completion' for 'Damon Pointing'
    for the course 'HH3 Certified Operator'."

    Could anyone help me find out how to add the institution name to the email so it looks like:
    "Hi

    Attached is the certificate 'Certificate of Completion' for 'Damon Pointing' from ''
    for the course 'HH3 Certified Operator'."

    I tried making changes to the email_certificate.php file and got help from our developer to make live but no cigar.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated smile
    Mata

    Hey Mata,

    Glad you are finding this plugin useful.

    There is a similar issue on tracker (see - https://github.com/markn86/moodle-mod_customcert/issues/126). I am going to deal with it there and think of a way that I can make it so people can specify the fields they wish to pass, or just pass a whole lot of stuff as a quick solution for now.
