    Hi guys.

    This is and very usefull block to our institution. But i had some issue, our courses use a grid format (nor topic or week), so when a user clics a section doesn't show the window pop up of the grid (or section represented in a grid item) option. How can i fix this?

    Hi,

    The Course Menu (CM) block is mad and tested for the Week and Topic course formats since they are part of Moodle Core. To make CM work with another course format extensive development and we currently don't have it on our road map .

    Hi Alex, great work.
    But I get those error messages.
    String [myprofile,core] is deprecated. Either you should no longer be using that string, or the string has been incorrectly deprecated, in which case you should report this as a bug. Please refer to https://docs.moodle.org/dev/String_deprecation

    We are having problems with chapters.
    Moodle 3.0.1
    Latest version of plugin. I beleive.
    Where we put the chapters is not where they stay.
    If we move chapters,
    Save
    Go to student view
    Return to teacher view
    They have moved back.

    Possible hypothesis: is it a feature that CM stops you having only one section per chapter?

    The Course Menu block is showing icons to activities, but the names are missing - is that a bug? Is there any fix for that?

    Hi, any reason the menu when in weekly format doesn't show the default section title with month/day - ie just shows "week 1", "week 2" etc?

    Hi,
    Is there any version for M3.1 ? Actually the last version of this block is not compatible at all with Moodle 3.1 :o(
    Yui seems problematic with the tree view.

    Bump for Moodle 3.1 support. Is this likely?

    I like the new interface here. I notice Course Menu has not been updated for 226 days 7 hours as of today. Does anyone know if this will be updated for 3.2? I'm just starting to think of the actions I need to work on for an upgrade.

    Hi Alex,
    Tree view still doesn't work with version '2016093000' on a 3.1.1 version of Moodle :o(
    No expand/collapse...

    Derek,
    I've got « An empty string was passed to "getElementById ()" » when I try to expand a tree branch.
    I am surprised to be the only one with this issue...
