    @Kieran: thanks, good to know your version. In that case, that blog post should be perfect for you, as it was written when we were on Moodle 3.5 as well! Basically the big difference is that pre-Moodle 3.6, you use "ID:zzz" in the website category title and the question title, where "zzz" is your preferred ID. I tend to use "embeddable" as the website category ID (I keep all the embeddable questions together), and then a question ID that makes sense, like "CourseWeek##Activity##". This results in a question ID something like "k101w15act22" (K101 being an example course, week 15, activity 22.

    Hi all, in response to interest here and through other channels, I've written a new blog post (will try and get them added to this page):

    Thanks so much for that write-up Chris.
    >>"Once we are back from our July holidays, we’ll check the latest code against Moodle 3.7 and share the new version of the plugin with the community."
    A question not covered by the FAQ: When are you back from your July holidays? smile
    (I want to know when I can get my hands on it!)

    End of July wink
    We don't know the amount of effort required for checking Moodle 3.7 and any additional work required yet, so it's difficult to know for sure how long it'll take. I am personally hoping we can share the latest version by mid-August.
    For v2.0 (the version that records student responses), we'll try to share that update with the community much quicker!

    Hi @Rachid,
    Which Moodle version are you using?
    Also, have you created at least one question with a 'question embed ID' within a category that has an 'embed category ID' on the same course (in order to have a question to embed)?

    thanks for your reply, please note that I use Moodle latest version 3.9 when I click on the tab it doesn't show any things and resulting an error in the debug console :
    require.min.js:5 Uncaught Error: No define call for atto_embedquestion/dialogue_manager
    at makeError (require.min.js:5)
    at Object.completeLoad (require.min.js:5)
    at HTMLScriptElement.onScriptLoad (require.min.js:5)

    That is strange. I am running the latest version of this plugin with Moodle 3.9.2 and it works fine.

    Still no fix? I managed to embed question using /filter/ manually but the atto button still not operational as when I click on it with atto no reaction at all.
    Thanks for your support

    There is nothing for us to fix. The problem is almost certainly something specific to your server. The plugin works for us. It works when the automated tests are run (https://travis-ci.com/github/moodleou/moodle-atto_embedquestion) and 400+ other people have the plugin installed and are not reporting problems.

    Only you can investigate why it is not working on your server.

    Hi @Galit. You need to ensure both the question and the course category have IDs. Please see the documentation at https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-filter_embedquestion/blob/main/internaldoc/functionality.txt

    Hope that helps,

    Hi, why am I getting a "This question may not be embedded here" message on the Page please? Will be grateful for any help.
    Thank you

    Hi @Isaac.

    I'm afraid I'm not able to replicate this problem on our test server, where I was able to embed various questions on a Page.
