IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PLUGIN ARCHIVE AVAILABILITY : due to the large amount of plugins supported, it is NOT affordable for us to update packages. Please use the Source Control urls to our github to get plugins archives

Important information.

The flashcard module was originally written by Valery for 1.9. It was hosted on the old Moodle plugins database, there was also an version initially ported to Moodle 2.

Tomek took over the work on it, finished porting into Moodle 2 and done few releases on the new plugins database page (this one). The latest version of this module is 3.2 and is available on github: . It includes set of fixes from alekiy that should get it to work on Moodle 2.5. You can use it but this development is dis-continued.

Valery has now updated his branch of flashcard module into Moodle 2.5. The source code is and the latest release is also on this, new plugins database as 2.4.0 (Build 2012040100). This is the branch you should be using now.

Both versions of flashcard module have diverged and are not compatible with each other. It's not possible to easily switch from one version (3.1 or 3.2) to another (2.4.0) without re-installing (and hence loosing all data).

    Hi Sorry but had to uninstall this plug in with Moodle 3.2 site as it prevents backups (a PHP error). Once removed Backups work fine. Please fix as we like this plug in.

    I, also, am on Moodle 3.1 and the flashcard 3.0 version caused issues. The issues were that we could no longer duplicate files nor could we delete files when editing course pages. We received an "An error occurred." message. To help, here are the error log entries when trying to duplicate or delete a file:

    2017/03/02 10:37:44 [error] 1517#1517: *13918582 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Class backup_flashcard_activity_task contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (backup_activity_task::define_my_settings) in /moodlefiles/www/moodle/mod/flashcard/backup/moodle2/backup_flashcard_activity_task.class.php on line 0" while reading response header from upstream, client:, server:, request: "POST /course/rest.php HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: "", referrer: ""

    Thanks for reporting this. Seems that some pacages did not get the backup regression fix. I publish and check asap.

    Hi michele, could you eventually obtain some info from your apache logs to see where to seek for the error ?

    Hi Valery, I cannot get the info you have requested. I am using a provider who does not provide with these information.

    Using flashcard plugin v 3.2.0 (build 2017022000) with Moodle 3.2.2+. The first time a user selects a Flashcard activity within a course, the Leitner play screen does not display the card decks. The user has to reload the page to get the decks to display. Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas how to resolve it?

    I have another question, I hope this is the right place to post it. If not, could someone direct me to where I should be putting these? I'm using the customization option for the front card image and the back card image. When I have a long answer on the back of my cards, the back of the card expands to show all my text, but my image for the back of the card does not expand. How can I get my custom image to expand along with the text area so that I don't end up with white space above and below my back card image?

    Hi Julien, could you : give me the plugin code_increment you are using (in version.php). there was an issue in an empty function to be kept on the backup iplementation... but should be fixed now. Thee is no visible issue in backup in development site for 3.2. To be really sure, i'm going to bump the code increment to 3.2.0002 and push it again in moodle. In case you still have issues, turn on your debugging mode and get error messages that appear at backup.
