Hi Pedro, please see the advanced options section of the documentation http://docs.moodle.org/26/en/Course_rate_block#Advanced_Options - 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.

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.

Thanks.
