    Hi Doc,

    Yes, you need to modify a few files, defining the new setting in settings.php or in mod_form.php (depening on the level you want to set it) and checking it's value in lib.php functions.

    When I try and access a Journal it is giving me this error...

    A file permissions error has occurred. Please check the permissions on the script and the directory it is in and try again.

    Hi Graham,

    I'm looking for that language string and I can not find it. Are you sure the problem comes from the journal module? What Moodle and mod_journal versions are you using?

    Moodle 2.5 and Journal 1.9.2

    I can add a journal to a topic window, set permissions for it but when I try and view the content it takes me to that error.

    Hi Graham,

    Have you checked the permissions of the files under mod/journal directory?

    After installing the plugin and adding it as an activity to a course and then clicking on it, I got this error message ' an error occurred while processing this directive]' I downloaded the plugin to my computer then uploaded. I choose activity module(mod) as the plugin type although I couldn't find any info on what type I should choose.
    Any idea why I'm getting this error?

    Hi Michael,

    For what you say you followed the normal testing instructions, can you enable debugging mode (site administration -> development -> debugging. debug to DEVELOER and debugdisplay ticked

    (continues last message) with this reproduce the problem, you will see mor einfo about the problem, if you can not solve the problem with this info (usually the module is installed without problems) then paste it here and I will try to help you to sort it out.

    Moodle 2.6 support?
  • Mon, Nov 25, 2013, 11:05 AM
    Hi Tyler,

    Yes, I will add the new version for 2.6. I haven't tried it, but the same code should work so feel free to test the latest mod_journal version in a Moodle 2.6 testing site.

    Hi David,
    I am using Journal with Moodle 2.6 and on first sight it seems to work fine. However, when I add comments to entries and save them it get the following message "Notice: Undefined variable: vars in /path/to/moodle/mod/journal/report.php on line 78".
    I had a look at report.php and line 78. Can it be that the "vars" should be a "vals"? If I change vo "vals" saving entries no longer displays the message.

    I've uploaded new versions of the plugin with the problem fixed for Moodle 2.4, Moodle 2.5 and a new version for Moodle 2.6.

    Thanks for the report.
