    Dalia - you have to use a font that contains the necessary Arabic glyphs. Please see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5333702/tcpdf-utf-8-lithuanian-symbols-not-showing-up.

    Hi Dalia,

    Thanks, glad you like this plugin.

    1) Please see https://github.com/markn86/moodle-mod_customcert/blob/master/README.md on how to add fonts.
    2) Please see https://docs.moodle.org/32/en/Restrict_access on how to restrict the certificate.

    Cheers!

    Hey Mark,
    I don't know if i am missing it or what the problem is but i just installed the plugin and designed a cert. looks great on admin side. I cant see where to grab it as a student for a course that I have completed.

    Hey JM Oliveri, I wish there was a page I could direct you to that could show you how to use this plugin but this is a project I do in my spare time and most time is spent fixing bugs! Someone was kind enough to create https://docs.moodle.org/30/en/Custom_certificate_module but it is still missing some important information. In your case, have you added a 'Custom certificate' to your course and then loaded the template you created as an admin?

    Hello mark!

    In first place, thank you very much for your work and effort.

    I'm creating a course and I have some doubts about using your mod. The course has different groups of users, and I would like to assign as an activity/resource, a specific certificate for each group. It is possible? I can't see the way to choose among the different templates when I'm creating the activity/resource.

    The second question is, in those certificates, I'd need that the different competences adquired during the course were shown as a list. It would be possible to add this feature to your mod? For example: 1) Install wordpress, 2) Create a wordpress site, etc.

    I don't know if these questions had been answered before, and I don't have any knowledge in moddle scripting, so I would be really pleased if you could answer me.

    Thank you very much in advance,

    Best regards

    Hi Mark,

    Quick question regarding your custom certificate module, I am currently designing my certificates for my site and I have a couple of multi line text elements. I have used the center html segment to try and have this text centered on the certificate and this looks correct when "repositioning elements". However, when downloading certificate this does not appear to work and the text is on the left.

    This issue is affecting the course title and cutom text fields when they take up multiple lines.

    Thanks

    MArk, In my case, I have installed the plugin and created a custom certificate from the admin panel but I dont know how to link to it, call it from the template. How do i make it do that a stw the certificate. I am missing the part that connects it to the course or where to find it as a student. I hope that clarifies. I do not see the answer in the document that you linked. I had already seen adn read it prior to posting.. Any help would be great.

    Ciao Mark,
    Prima di tutto grazie per questo splendido plug-in.
    Vorrei chiederti se è possibile numerare i certificati rilasciati.

    Quindi come elemento "certificato numero "xx".

    Naturalmente il numero deve essere incrementale relativamente ad ogni corso...
    spero tu possa aiutarmi.

    Grazie

    Hi Mark,
    First of all thank you for this beautiful plug-in.
    I would like to ask you if you can number issued certificates.

    So as an element certificate"number xx".

    Of course, the number must be incremental relative to each course ...
    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you

    Isaac -

    1. Please have a look at https://docs.moodle.org/32/en/Restrict_access.
    2. A new element would need to be created called 'Competencies' that listed the available competencies in the course, but for now you would have to use the 'Text' element.

    Samuel -

    Sounds like a bug. Can you create an issue at https://github.com/markn86/moodle-mod_customcert/issues with detailed replicated steps?

    JM Oliveri

    You need to turn editing on in your course and add a 'Custom certificate' activity. Once added, click on the custom certificate then click on 'Edit custom certificate' in the activity menu. On this page you can then load the template.

    Please create a request for this feature at https://github.com/markn86/moodle-mod_customcert/issues.

    Mark, It seems part of the problem was that the course was set up as a single activity course and thus the certificate being an activity, wasnt able to be added. I have now added it however I do not have the option visible to load/select a template for it. It downloads blank but I can see my template in the template manager. I have only 1 made.

    Which tab should the template be in in the edit screen? (General,options, common module settings, restrict access, activity completion, tags, competencies)
