Has any-one tried it in 2.6 yet? We've only just gone up to 2.5 so it will be 3-6 months before I need a 2.6 version myself. I'm not aware of any significant changes that would cause it to break? Please give it a try and report any issues in the Tracker.

Hi all, is it possible to show only the rating result in any course list, like in the front page even if you'r not logged in?

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.

Hi,
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.

Regards
Ajeet

Hey Jenny,

Is there a way to embed the course rating block inside a course description?

Hello, is this plugin working with Moodle versions 2.7 and/or 2.8?

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.
