    Hi Pedro, please see the advanced options section of the documentation - you will need to be a programmer to do this as you'll be altering areas of Moodle not within the plug-in's control.

    I want to add extera field 'Comment'. For this I added new field comment in mdl_block_rate_course table which have degault value '0'. also i have written the following code on rate.php page
    echo '';
    and on update.php i have added
    $comment = required_param('comment',PARAM_ALPHA);
    on the top and
    $completion->comment = $comment;
    just above where data is inserting.

    But after submitting, the comment value is not reflecting . It is showing '0' as i have defiled.

    Kindly let me knwo what i am doing wrong.

    Hi Frederica
    I've uploaded our 2.7 version. We have not yet checked it against 2.8, but should get to it in the next couple of weeks.

    Hi, I'm currently running a Moodle 2.9.3+ site and planning to update it to Moodle 3 or 3.1 (sometime in the future), and i would love to have your plugin installed. I do, however, have a question: have you tested in a Moodle 3+ environment? When would you have it certified?

    I tried your plugin ine Moddle 3.0.2 and it installs just fine wut when I try to giv a rank to a course I get the following message :
    "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: build_navigation() can not be used any more, please use $PAGE->navbar methods instead."

    Any news on an update for this plugin? This plugin is exactly what we want, but due to the build_navigation() issue mentioned above, it does not work in Moodle 3.1.
