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, I want to revert the flashcard activity for all students to start a fresh . How do I do it?
    On the summary page I do not see by users tab filled out. I read on the moodle docs that this is possible from the summary tab

    Hi everyone, is there anyone having experience running Flash Card Set on moodle 2.9.1? PlugIn sounds very interesting, so we would like to test ist, but
    do you think it's a bad idea to install the plug in?

    Hi, is there any update as to when Flashcard for Moodle 2.9 will be released or can we confirm that the legacy version works on 2.9?

    Hi Aaron, could you maybe qualify the staging 2.9 release in in branch MOODLE_29_STABLE so we might get this upgrade to satisfactory point, and put it back into Moodle plugin base ?

    I am using Moodle 2.8 and my flash card plugin has been acting a little strange recently with some of my users. When ever they go in to edit their flash cards when they try and navigate to the next page of cards the flash cards will populate with the cards that were on the first page instead of allowing them to edit their second page and so on. Any suggestions on what might be causing it to hang up and to fix it?

    Hello Valery, hello Aaron. Are there news when the plugin can be used for Moodle 2.9?
    Due to the previous comments, I am a little unsure if the version in brench MOODLE29_STABLE is already fully operational.

    I am using Moodle 2.9.2+ (Build: 20150918) and the latest flashcard version. I have 1000 cards to import. The system takes the first 70 or so and then completes the import without the rest of them. The import data is correct. Is there an import limit?

    Hi Erick, what i suspect here is a limitation in the length of the URL or moe exactly in the size of HTTP parameters sent by the import form. For such amount of cards, i would need changing the import strategy by uploading a csv file...

    That would be extremely helpful. Are you willing to do that? Is there any other way around the limitation?

    Hello, This is a great module and we use it quite a bit. I am experiencing an issue with flashcard decks using images. I created the decks in Moodle 3.0.2+ and recently updated the flashcard plug-in and Moodle to 3.0.4+ and when I try to create a new deck or update an existing deck I get the following error:

    Exception - Call to undefined function flashcard_print_image()

    My text based card decks seem to be unaffected.
