    Thanks for the helpful hint. I got it figured out. And yes my school district has been heavily using the checklist for years and I tweak the output every time we upgrade to be a different color depending on the percentage complete. Sorry to bother you with this question but thanks for the help.
    100% green
    90% blue
    80% orange
    70% purple
    60% yellow <60% red

    Dunno if it's just me but everytime I upgrade the checklist module to the newer version it corrupts the existing checklists. I have to uninstall the checklist block and checklist module each time and reinstall it to get everything working again. It's just a pain as I have to setup all the checklists again for all my courses.

    This has happened everytime I upgrade to the newer version for the past 2 or 3 upgrades now.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Sorry I forgot to take a screenshot of the error.

    Nevermind I figured it out.

    Turns out it was just a file permissions setting error whenever I upgraded the plugin. Weird.

    First, I have to say this is a great tool. Thank you.
    We have installed the checklist activity and block in all of our courses (175+ courses)
    My question is why some courses would display two blocks, when there is only one checklist activity?
    Any ideas?

    Adele - there is no limit on how many checklist blocks you can add to a course. If you've added the block twice (or added it at the site top level and set it to be shown in every course, then added it directly to some courses as well), then it will appear twice.

    Hello Davo, Thanks for the plugin! Is this plugin working with moodle 2.9.1+? I want to do the upgrade but i am afraid that this plugin doesn't work. Thanks!

    Paula - looks to be working fine (just clicked through to a course with it on and clicked on a few links in the block). I'll update the entry.

    Would not it be nice to celebrate the Moodle 3.0 release by adding some screenshot here? smile

    How can I force the checklist to display fully expanded on the homepage? Right now I see "You have checklists that require your attention" and then I have to click to expand. Can this be modified? Thank you!

    Matt - you will need to take a look at the core code that handles the collapsed regions. The checklist module plays no part in the collapsing, it just provides the content to put within the collapsed region.

    You may be able to do something with a CSS3 selector to override the styling of collapsing regions within an overview div with '_checklist' in the id.

    Hi -- We installed the latest Checklist block build on our Moodle 2.7.11 site (Build: 2015122300). I noticed a minor issue. The labels for the block's capabilities appear to be switched:

    The capability label for adding the block to the My Home page -- block/checklist:myaddinstance -- is currently "Add new Checklist block"

    The capability label for adding the block to a course page -- block/checklist:addinstance -- is currently "Add Checklist block to My Moodle page"

    I think this should be the other way around.

    Thanks for the plugin and block -- they're very nice. -- Brian

    Thanks, Brian.

    I've swapped the strings on github and it will be fixed next time I push a new version out to the plugins list here.
