    Hi again,

    I may have fixed it, I found some advice about permissions so I set...

    all files in the main "mod" folder to 644
    all folders and files recursive - subfolders to 755.

    Does that cause any issues, as it seems to work?

    For people considering this module, I suggest enabling the Feedback module (Site admin -> Plugins -> Activity modules). Feedback is part of the standard Moodle distribution, is well maintained and offers equivalent functionality to Questionnaire.

    I couldn't disagree more. Questionnaire is so much better maintained, has so much more functionality and such a better appearance. I even asked Martin D about this and why Moodle core chose Feedback and he said at the time it appeared Feedback was going to become much more robust but that's not how it turned out. Maybe Moodle HQ feels differently now that Remote Learner has stopped being a Moodle Partner but IMO, if that's the case, we don't need those games in this community.

    Is there a way to do activity completion based on the response? If a user says "no" to a survey, could they "fail" the questionnaire?

    Will there be an update soon for PHP 7 support? Right now, with the latest version of Moodle 3.0 with PHP 7 support, questionnaire is causing the entire course to not load. I reported this here:

    Running version 2015102800

    We use the 2.8.11 version of Moodle. We can't add questions anymore since the release of the 2.8.11

    First, make sure you are using the latest 2.8 release of questionnaire (2.8.3 - or If you are using that, and are still having problems, post in the questionnaire forum ( providing more detail of what steps you are doing and what errors you are seeing.

    Our sequence of questions need to differ from the sequence of the output (e.g. questions of section 8 needs to be in the top of the radar). How to do this?

    Hi Mike !

    I think I found a bug : http://moodle/my stays blank when using mod_questionnaire

    Questionnaire 3.0.0 (Build - 2015102800)
    mod_questionnaire 2015102800

    Fatal error: 'break' not in the 'loop' or 'switch' context in /home/moodle/mod/questionnaire/questiontypes/questiontypes.class.php on line 297

    Information : version
    moodle : 3.0.4 (Build: 20160509)
    unicode : activée

    Hi. This was fixed in issue CONTRIB-6069.

    Regarding the issue of the questionnaire plugin breaking moodle when running under PHP7, I am confused about the versioning and how to upgrade my installation.
    The version I have currently installed is Questionnaire 3.0.0 (Build - 2015102800) - that fails under PHP7.
    The page for CONTRIB-6069 says that the fixed branches are MOODLE_30_STABLE, MOODLE_31_STABLE . But the plugin version is still 2015102800. And within Moodle itself, there is no indication of an updated version of the plugin.
    So for us non-developers who really, really want the PHP7 benefits and need the fixed version of the questionnaire plugin, has a release date been set for the new version?

    Hi Josiah. I haven't released a new 3.0 version to the plugins database yet. It is just in Github. Having said that, I'll release one today, since I don't think we'll be doing any more work on the 3.0 branch unless new bugs come up.

    I have just released "Release 3.0.1 (Build - 2016051100)" which should contain all of the fixes you mentioned.

    Hello Mike and respective developers of the mod questionnaire

    I would like to ask if you have any plan for developing the mod for moodle mobile? I think that would be the awesome contribution since mobile apps will have much more interactions abilities. Thank you very much and hope you have plans for future developments of the mod.
