    Hello All,
    We tried a sample Install in Ver 4.0. Here also the Question Image does not show. Whereas I am certain others must be able to get the images. Pl see snap

    Guys, I am looking for some help here

    Contrary to a previous thread which mentioned about absolute address Vs Relative address, we tried different images in the same question and the image address showed up as below:

    So, apparently it is not an issue of address, but a bug in the code which does not show the image in the question.
    Anybody else facing this issue

    BUG in Moodle Version 4.2.1: The crossword Button "Check Crossword" disappears after pressing once. So the game always ends after pressing either of the buttons. Can this be fixed? Does anybody else experience this?

    Thanks again for great jobs done for this plugin.
    We now use Moodle 4.1.4 and we accounter a problem concerning question versionning. When using "millionnaire" (but this may be the case with other game types), All question versions are used to build the game. Am I missing something in the configuration ? Is-it possible to limit questions used with the last one published (without deleting "older" question versions) ?
    Thanks . (Maybe this question was already asked but can't find it, sorry if this is the case,I should not be alone is that case).

    Hangman is not calling questions from "Question" option, neither from "Quiz" option as source of question. Is it possible to call fill in the blanks question for Hangman game. Any help would be appreciable.

    In Moodle 4.1, when trying to use the Millionaire game with a Quiz, the user gets the message, "There are no questions."

    Debugging presents the following additional information:

    We have now had issues with Crosswords (courses with them fail during the backup/restore process) as well as Millionaire ("There are no questions") and Snakes and Ladders ("Error reading from database"). I'm nos so sure this plugin is ready for Moodle 4.1.

    It's difficult for me to make a crossword. Could someone please tell me what settings I need to have in order to display the crossword? I continue to receive error notifications,
