    Hi David,
    I'm trying this out now and this seems fine but is lacking in documentation and i can't seem to see any.
    Could you provide any simple English Website or documentation URLs for the wider community to read about. I suggest to re-use the really big help hint/popup and reformat into a doc.

    Also some screenshot showing the menu configuration tabs in English would be really useful as it wasn't apprent that it was the config screen until i tried the plugin in locally in English.

    Hi is there any chance this is going to be moodle 2.4 compliant? It is a really nice feature well done!

    Hi David,

    I've just been trying out your format to show at iMoot 2013 and noticed with version 2013200101 (laura) running under Moodle 2012120303.10 2.4.3+ (Build: 20130425) that the menu does not appear until you adjust things and save on the 'Menu tree' tab and that in the English file, 'Configurate' (all three instances) needs to be 'Configure'.

    Hi Gareth...

    It is true, the menu only is build when the tree is configured. I will to make this change in a next version.

    About the "Configurate" word, thanks, My English is not very good wink

    Hi David,

    Great plugin, we're really enjoying it!

    We're just having one issue, which is that the menu takes a long time to build, and the user can see the building process, which isn't such a good user experience.

    Here is a screenshot of what the user sees for a few seconds:

    Can something be done about that?

    Hi David,

    Will there be a Moodle 2.5 version soon? Like before iMoot 2013. I'm just getting the 'print_section' depreciated warning.

    Only a matter of using:

    echo $this->courserenderer->course_section_cm_list($course, $thissection, 0);

    etc. If you had a GitHub then I could fork and help with the change.
