    I think "Passed by deadline" is the best. I hope people don't have trouble translating that into other languages.

    This could probably be added to assignment and lesson as well, where resubmission is possible.

    Hi, Mike.

    The CSS for this can be changed in the blocks styles.css file. I'll add this to the next version, but you can modify yours now, if you like.

    .block_progress .moduleIcon {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 5px;
    max-width: 24px;

    Don't forget to purge caches afterwards.

    I've added a new version with a "Passed by deadline" action for assignment, lesson and quiz.

    I have not seen a PDF. If you find a good resource, please share it here.

    The video above gives a quick overview of the set up and use of the Progress Bar. The default colours (configurable through global settings) relate as follows.

    Blue: incomplete but due in future
    Red: incomplete and past due
    Green: completed

    Hi, Nishant.

    The block can be added to course pages and the Dashboard (nee My Home). It can't be added on other pages as it doesn't make sense elsewhere. If you are able to add the block, you should be able to set it up.

    Hi, Chris.

    A couple of people have reported a similar problem. If you read back through the comments here you might get more information. The problem seems to stem from incorrect permissions being set for files on installation, but I don't have much more information than that. If you can shed any more light on the problem, please do.

    i have installed the progress bar, which is a great tool, but I'm wondering if you can help. i have also installed an activity plugin called facetoface, but the progress bar doesn't seem to recognize this activity to monitor its progress. does anyone have any idea why this might be, or what part of the code i would have to modify for this to be recognized?

    Thanks in advance
