    Hi Michael,

    It would be nice when the activities form Content Pages (https://moodle.org/plugins/mod_icontent) were included

    Hi, Bert.

    If you use the Completion Progress block, all activities that support completion can be included. I suggest you switch to that.

    Hello guys,
    I have spotted an issue when you try to connect SCORM activity with progress bar. When SCOMR is not finished by any of students and you log in as a teacher you can use [Overview of students] button to display all progress of all students in course. Then when you click on not-attempted SCORM in any students you will get an error 'Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: mod_scorm_attempt_bar requires a attemptids value.'. The link to not-attempt by student SCORM leads to URL/mod/scorm/report/userreport.php?id=XXXX&user=XXXX
    This was spotted and tested for moodle 3.1

    Hi, Slawomir.

    This error looks like it's within the SCORM module.

    There will be no more updates to this plugin.

    Use the Completion Progress block instead.

    Hi, I just changed the plugin name in the german translation. The name is now 'Fortschrittsbalken (alt)' for Moodle 3.1 and 3.0. I hope that will animate everybody to switch to the Completion Progress block instead.

    Hi MIchael

    Your plugin shows how far thorugh the unit and what parts they have done. Brilliant!

    Do you have a plugin that will allow teachers to see how much progress has been made in each part of the unit.

    For example, some of our lessons within a unit take 4-5 hours as there is a lot to do. Teachers are asking if there is a way they can see how far through the lesson the student students are.

    Hi, Al.

    I suggest you try the Completion Progress block. That is being updated regularly.

    Hi Michael,
    Does the plugin detect old files? It seems like when I use the progress bar block, it actually stores all the other activities, for example, old scorm, quizzes, assignments, etc. The ones that have already been deleted. How can I remove all those old files from the plugin? I have tried removing the plugin and re-install it but it doesn't work. I even tried to remove the plugin's 'backup' file from the server but I don't think it's the right solution to it. Can you assist me in solving this issue? I do not want the functionality of the progress bar to detect deleted data from the LMS.

    Hi, Aliesah.

    I would have thought that editing the block instance's configuration would have updated the list of activities from the course. If that's not happening, I'm sorry.

    I encourage you to shift to the Completion Progress block, which I am maintaining.

    We are using Progress Bar in our courses but in some cases the percentage on the dashboard is not not accurate. While in the course it is showing 100% complete for the activities, the dashboard is reflecting only 75% complete or something different from the course. Does anyone know whether this is related to the theme or the Progress Bar plugin or have any ideas why the discrepancy? Great theme by the way.

    Hi Sal, the Progress Bar can store its own completion state, separate to that reported on the dashboard. I would highly recommend moving to the Course Completion Progress bar.
