Derek, have you tried accessing image place holders on themes after installation? Although Theme works fine on Moodle 2.6.x, but it did created this slight issue of keeping on loading image place holders, which I thought was fault of theme(s) itself at first place, later to uninstall all plug-ins and re-install to see and Course Menu Block showed fault, still waiting for this awesome Block to work

Usman, you say "accessing image place holders on themes after installation" I am not exactly sure what you mean by this.

Just added a page to the docs. Feel free to edit/add to it.

Thinking about an upgrade to 2.6.2. AL reports an error with "Course Menu"
"Course Menu gives a fatal error: Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Missing YUI3 module details"
Has anyone else tried Course Menu with 2.6.2?

Confirming: After trying it myself, Course Menu v 2014011401 throws an error with 2.6.2 as AL suggested on Monday.

I've just been trying to decide what to do about Course Menu.
I note Alex's comment here:
I quote: "Hello Hussain, I'm glad you find the Course Menu useful. The Course Menu block is the result of a team of people it's not only my contributions, that's why we normally don't give hints on how to modify the source. We either implement a new feature or leave it out completely"
Which is part of the huge thread
So there are others involved with course menu, and there are people posting in the thread who do know what is going on under the hood. I've wasted time with versions of CM (GIT has stuff there, but they are not packaged in nice branches, and an amateur can foul things up). It's now become a show stopper in several ways for one of the sites I deal with. It will still not work with 2.6.2.
What to do?
+I've asked about getting it into Core Moodle here:
but little movement. It will not happen I suspect, progress on the UI question re Moodle is a long way off.
+Do I approach NetSapiensis AB and see about paying them?
- In their GIT they do say they are the "creator and maintainer" of course menu
+Do hire a coder and fork it?
Ahhh. Such are the joys of open source software.
Just not sure

Did you manage to get the Course Menu block working for Moodle 2.6.2
Wed, Apr 2, 2014, 6:25 AM
Not yet. I have emailed Alex to confirm we have the right version etc, and then sent him the errors we were getting. At the moment they cannot reproduce them. Meeting tomorrow (3 Apr) with tech guys to check everything again then we'll either have solved the problem or will give Alex access to our site to see if they can help.

Thanks Derek. Please keep us informed.

@Jackson: Nearly there.
From our tester guy:
The updated Course Menu block worked great with one new issue.
When UPGRADING Course Menu, the new settings page is missing a required field, which locks up the moodle admin. You just get this message if you try to get past the new settings page:
"A required parameter (s__block_course_menu_trimlength) was missing"
I reinstalled Moodle from scratch and it was fine. The missing setting does appear on the full Course Menu settings page, it's just the upgrade new settings page that has a problem.

@Jackson. Last update before I take a week's leave.
Message from Alex, new version yesterday, hopefully with upgrade path fixed.
Alex asked for feedback.
