The Moodle plugin "mod_unilabel" enables you to include some nice formated text on the course- or frontpage.
There are 5 different content types included (extendable sub plugins):

  • Simple text
  • Carousel
  • Collapsed text
  • Course teaser
  • Topic teaser

Usage

The configuration consists of two steps (except the "Simple text" type).
  1. The creation of a new instance by using the activity chooser.
  2. The configuration of the content depending on the content type you chose in the first step.

Description of the content types

Simple text
This content type just show the label as you already know
Carousel
In this content type you can define a series of images.
Each image is shown in a slide show.
You can also define a caption to each image that is show inside the slide item.
For each image you can define a url what makes the image to a clickable button.
The carousel is by default responsive to different screen sizes.
To optimize the responsivity to each of the images you can assigne a mobile optimized image.
This mobile image is shown on small devices smaller than 768 px.
Grid
In this content type you can define a series of images and contents/urls.
The grid is by default responsive to different screen sizes.
You can set a column count for the grid to define how many tiles are shown in one row.
On smaller screens the column count is reduced by a half of the defined count.
On mobile devices like cellphones only one column is shown.
To optimize the responsivity to each of the images you can assign a mobile optimized image.
This mobile image is shown on small devices smaller than 768 px.
If you have defined a content for a slide the content is shown as a modal dialog if you click the slide.
If you have defined a url for a slide on click the url is loaded.
Collapsed text
This content type offers you two options:
  1. a folded content
  2. a modal dialog containing the content.
Both types can be used with or without animation
Course teaser
Mainly intended to show on the frontpage it shows the titles and images of selected courses.
The presentation can be a carousel or a grid.
Each Item is a clickable button that brings the user to the related course.
Topic teaser
Mainly intended to show on the frontpage it shows the description of topics of a selected course.
The topics will be shown as carousel or as grid.
If you click on such a shown topic a modal dialog shows the topic content.

    Hi Petko, please use the bug tracker for this question (https://github.com/grabs/moodle-mod_unilabel/issues).
    I can't give you any support here on this page.
    Thank you!

    Need guidance - just installed the plug-in into our 3.9 Moodle environment.

    First, LOVE this plug-in so far!
    Second, we do NOT have a Grid content type - should we see this in our list of types? We were expecting to use the Grid - thoughts on why we do not see this?
    Types that we do see are; Carousel, Collapsed Text, Course Teaser, Simple Text and Topic Teaser

    Thank you in advance!

    Saludos,
    Es un excelente plugin, muy útil. Quería solicitar, si es posible, en el tipo Carousel poder establecer un ancho automático para las imágenes, el alto si lo tenemos la opción de seleccionar de manera automática, pero considero que el ancho también es necesario por el distinto tamaño de pantallas en las que trabajan los usuarios. Agradezco su gentil atención.

    Hi Melisa, thanks for your nice feedback! The great subplugin "Accordion" developed by Stefan Hanauska is now integrated in the unilabel. More plugins are possible with no doubts but currently not available.

    Very useful plugin! After upgrading to Moodle 41. and installing the newest version, I noticed that when opening a collapsed text unilabel, it opens ALL the collapsed text unilabels in a section. Not desirable! Is this a bug or how can this be avoided?

    Are there any news about unilabel running in the moodle app? Does it work? My main interest are simple and collapsed text.

    Hello, we want to use the course teaser to show selected courses on the frontpage. It shows the titles and images of selected courses.
    Problem: The course title ist above the image. So the images are not in line at the top.
    1) Can I get the text under the image?
    2) Is it possible to customize the text attributes? The text is very big.

    What can I tell our administrator?

    Hello,
    I am experiencing some issues with the unilabel on our Moodle 4.1
    I have opened two threads on the Moodle in English forum:
    1. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=449805
    2. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=449806
    I see the specialists are here, so just posting the links here to smile

    Hi,
    a user asked for the following "problems":
    --------------------------
    I like to use the universal text field in grid form to structure my courses. I have two questions about this:
    Question1: From time to time, the order of my created tiles is simply swapped. This can be fixed by editing and saving several times without actually changing anything.

    Question 2: Is there a way to swap the order of the tiles? So far, I haven't found a way, except for the unintentional swap as described in question 1.
    --------------------------

    Can someone explain to me or the user how the order is created? Is it possible to set the order?

    Thanks, Birgit from germay!

    Hi Birgit, the new version 4.3.3 that I have just released, offers the possibility to change the order of the elements and to delete elements.
    Best regards
    Andreas
