    Hi. This plugin does not work on the Moodle Mobile app. Is it possible to get it fixed?

    Thanks for a great plugin. We would also like to see it Mobile app compatible.

    Is this plugin going to be updated for Moodle 4? Our teacher like it, but in version 4 it displays all of the teacher's question text twice.

    We've update the Journal plugin to be compatible with Moodle 4!

    Hi, thank you very much for this very useful plugin.
    Version 2022083000 does not work with PostgreSQL since 'journal' has been quoted by "(double quotes)" in lib.php.
    Workaround is replacing " with \'.
    Thanks again.

    Unfortunately, the change to the plugins "FEATURES" to make it compatible with Moodle 4.0, means that it is no longer compatible with Moodle 3.4 through Moodle 3.11. Debugging in any one of them gives, Warning: Use of undefined constant FEATURE_MOD_PURPOSE - assumed 'FEATURE_MOD_PURPOSE' ...

    @Al Rachels - if a plugin update stops it from working with older Moodle versions, you should be able to install an early version of the plugin from

    Is there a fix for the duplication of the journal question issue yet? It looks weird, especially when the question is more than a couple of sentences long

    This plugin no longer works (grades and feedback cannot be saved, due to "invalid action" error) since upgrading from 2020091100 to 2022083000.

    I wanted to ask if Journal is fully compatible with Moodle 4.1 (LTS)?
    And thanks for your work!

    Thanks for the great work for the community with this plugin. I write to find out if there are any plans to develop an "Journal embed" version, like the "Forum discussion embed" plugin? To make it possible to insert the activity "Journal" in any part of the course, using Moodle's filters.

    @ Elpiniki - I have also noticed the issue with the description appearing twice, and have partially fixed with the follow code:

    #page-mod-journal-view .activity-header {
    display: none;

    Just iterating @christian Sennhauser's query and checking - will this Journal plugin be fully compatible with Moodle 4.1.*?

    @I V
    I got an answer here (there probably won't be much more to come):
    Quote (shortened):
    "from AL Rachels - Montag, 10. Juli 2023, 21:54
    ... I doubt you will get a statement from the current developers. I will say that I have Journal 4.0.1 running on Moodle 4.1.4+ and it appears to work correctly..."
