    Did you select this template you created to be used in your course? And as I said, if you have a background picture in your cert, you have to select that pic in your selected course-cert. (in the correspondindgdd-fied also) Thats my help-idea so far, hope Mark will care too. (I do also think, you bettwr create an issue in corresponding Forum, so pics/screenshots can be added in that help-forum

    Hello - in the certificate list the number of certificates does not appear - Instead, {$ a} is displayed. The plugin installed on our moodle 3.5 is in version 2018051707.

    I have absolutely the same issue that HUGO ENRIQUE SARMIENTO OSORIO has. I have created a template, able to preview it, background, all other images and texts are there, but when I add the certificate to the course it comes up blank. It looks like the plugin doesn't work properly now.

    Seems to be working well in Moodle 3.9 except it does not correctly recognize data from custom course fields that are drop down menus. They simply show as a 1 in both the reposistion wizard and also when tested with a user account ... still shows only the number one for field of study (ex: accounting) and Instructional method (ex: Group Internet Based).

    Would be great to find a work around.

    Hi Guys,

    I appreciate that this plugin is not yet supported by moodle 3.9 yet but wanted to feedback issues on 3.9 due to a post here saying it works fine.

    just tried this plugin on moodle 3.9 and seems to be some issues that i'm experiencing. When applying a background and clicking save and continue the background image jumps up over the save buttons with a gap at the bottom, i then have to use my browser back button to return, however i have to delete the background image and insert it to realign it when going into re-position elements. Then this keeps happening after clicking save and continue and i have to repeat the steps of deleting and reinserting.

    Also when i inserted the grade element it does not show at all, it did in the beginning but after inserting other elements it doesn't seem to want to be added.

    I am running with the latest version of adaptable theme and Moodle 3.9.1 (Build: 20200713).

    Lastly thank you for your hard work and look forward to 3.9 version of this plugin so i can give it a whirl again.
