Course formats: Onetopic format

Maintained by que bueno que sabe el café colombiano...David Herney Bernal
Format to course that allows showing each topic in a tab, keeping the current tab between calls to resources, in such a way that when it returns from a module as the blog or the glossary it returns to tab from where you started. This format is based on the Moodle standard format: “Topics”. It accepts edition by AJAX.

    Hi We are using the OneTopic version 2016071402 on our current moodle platform and have just had our test moodle upgraded and the plugin upgraded to 2018010604 (San Juan), is there a way we can add the number of sections back in as it is going to cause us a lot of problems as it has hidden the subpage orphaned topics, the topics are visible on the page to the learners but the resources are not. When the learners now click on a subpage they cannot see the resources as the topics are hidden. In previous versions of the OneTopic course format and subpage plugin we were able to view only the main topic pages and still view the content of the subpage. Now we will only be able to view the subpage content if all the topics are visible. Are we able to add the number of sections option back into the OneTopic Course Format? I hope this makes sense. Kind Regards, Belinda

    Hi Melinda...

    It is a Moodle core feature, It was changed in the last versions and I pretend keep the format structure similar to the core.

    However, It should not be a problem for you, You can change the resources to "Available but not visible" for students, not?.

    Hello David, the debugging message, Juan mentioned, is the same here. It's not depending on a theme, it appears in old and new OneTopic-Courses.
    Thanks for having a look.

    Hi David,

    Would it be any hassle adding a new minor version update to include PR #50

    Hi David Herney Bernal,

    I have installed onetopic course format in a Moodle 3.6 version. I like how the tabs look. How can I move a resource from one tab to another? In example, move an assignment located in section/week three to seven. It only allows me to move the resource within the same tab.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi @HFU Tech Support...

    In order to move a resource:

    1. Select "Disable/enable asynchronous edit functions"
    2. Select the horizontal arrows icon of the resource
    3. Go to the target tab
    4. Click on new position

    Other way:
    1. Use the "Section 0" over the Tabs (course format settings)
    2. Move the resource to the "Section 0"
    3. Go to the target tab
    4. Move the resource to the new position

    Saludos David,

    Muchas gracias por su pronta respuesta. Me pregunto del porque no me percaté antes de ese pequeño detalle. Me encanta cómo se ven los cursos con este formato. ¡Un abrazo!

    Hi Laura...

    What moodle version you use?
    You can use the plus sign in the right of tabs visible when the course is in edition mode.

    Hello, I can't change a tab. For example I created the tabs: A C D B, I would like to put the parent tab B after A.
    And how to change a daughter tab to another parent tab. Could you send me any pictures please?

    Hi David, this plugin is great.

    Thank you so much for sharing it.

    I wanted to ask you if maybe you have thought about placing a progress bar for each TAB (section) or SUB-TAB and one of the progress of the whole course, that would be magnificent.

    Thanks for your time

    Kia ora David,

    I have made a pull request This adds settings to allow for the "index tab" to be styled. It would be most excellent if it could be considered for a merge.

    Ngaa mihi
