    Thank you, guys. I replaced the the code in view.php with what you provided in the link above and it worked fine. No error messages and the block loaded nicely. I've opened a developer account with Clickatel and will now start testing the plug in to see if it will work for my purposes.

    I assume someone will update the Github repository so this change is in the download. Thanks again! Much appreciated!

    Hello,

    I am trying this plugin on Moodle 2.6 with Clickatell.
    I have installed the block and set up with Clickatell username, password and API ID without problem (I am using the HTTP API, is it correct?)

    When I try (as admin or teacher) to send a message to the users of a course, I can select the course but I cannot select the role (I have no values in the drop-down menu), so it is impossible retrieve the users and send them SMS.

    Do you have any idea of what could be the issue? I have already set up the user roles in the course and in the system as well.

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    I have created a new version that allows:

    - Setting the field to use to identify roles in table role: Custom names (field name), Moodle short names (field shortname) or Archetype (field archetype).
    Please use Custom names ONLY if you have already set up them for the roles in your Moodle instance (default values in Moodle 2.6 are blank), otherwise the drop-down select in Send SMS page will remain empty.

    - Selecting the roles allowed to receive SMS via a multi-select list (listing the shortnames of the roles, so pay attention to the difference between teacher and editingteacher roles - if in doubt, leave the default value)

    the link to this version is: https://github.com/mattmoodle/SMS-Notifier-updated/tree/master/sms

    Enjoy smile

    I just tried the latest version of SMS Notifier and it works really well with Moodle 2.7. It has an expanded role selector and a new groups selector. Works perfectly with Clickatell. Thanks developers! Much appreciated!

    Hi, I have a suggestion for you to make this an even better plugin, what you could do is add in a select all button to allow users to select all users, this will save a lot of time, if there is a lot of users to select

    Hi!

    I have tried this plugin, it was smooth but when I tried to send sms I can't select any role. When I checked site Site administration/Plugins/Blocks/SMS Notifier only the api key, username, password and sms name were there.

    Can you help me with this?
    Thanks.

    Cheer!

    Dear Japun,

    Could you kindly advise which version of Moodle you are currently using?

    There appear to be two possibilities here. First, you may be using a higher version (our support is up to 2.5 at present). Second, you may be looking for more "roles" than what is currently available. We have allowed more roles e.g. Manager can define further roles, in our new version of SMS Notifier (which will work on 2.1 to 2.7 versions) but we have not formally released it yet.

    Please note that you can always reach us directly on lms@3ilogic.com too

    Regards
