    I use this course in many courses and it's really good.
    In one of the courses I wanted to delete one of the section and from that moment the component does not work for me in only in this course.
    I installed and removed the component that did not help, I added more section4 and it did not help
    The course is not shown at all in this configuration I get an error.
    in other course format It shows all the course

    This section does not exist
    More information about this error

    Hi Irith, I got the same error and managed to fix it by going to 'Administration > Edit settings' and changing the course format to something else and adding in 1 additional section to the total number and saving. For example, if it breaks on OneTopic course with 11 sections, change it to Topic format with 12 sections. Once your course content is navigable again, go back to 'Administration > Edit settings' and switch back to OneTopic course format and your course should work again. I repeated the error and found the problem to be that by being active in the final section (clicking in the last visible section) and trying to remove that last section (using - icon) - you then get the "This section does not exist" error. I hope this helps. Perhaps there is a way to prevent this error in the coding?

    Brilliant thanks David for your speedy response, tested at 3.2.2 and works well, no 'section does not exist' error.

    Hi David, I've been testing this course format in Moodle 3.2.2, and am running into an issue with the Announcements/News forum.

    It looks as if the auto-creation of the forum no longer works, now that Moodle core has changed the method for doing this (see I can't see any support for this method in the Onetopic codebase.

    There are two effects of this: the simple one is that it isn't possible to add the forum by adding the Latest News block. But also, if you have an Announcements forum already (e.g. it was there before the Moodle 3.2 upgrade), as soon as you visit the course settings page and re-save it, the Latest News block vanishes because the number of News items has reset to zero.

    I wonder whether you have any plans to add support for this new method so that the Announcements forum and block can be made to work again?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Erica...

    I added the supports_news method required.

    Thanks by your comment.

    We're using BuenaVista (2016071401) with Moodle 3.2.2 and i've noticed that when clicking around tabs within a course, when a tab becomes highlighted (with the blue line above it) it can sometimes knockout and misalign future tabs. When clicking on the next tab along, again the tab locations are readjusting. As highlighting doesn't seem to increase the width of the selected tab I can't see a reason for this effecting placement of any other tabs? Example here:

    Hi Sarah...

    I think that your problem is by the tab height in your current theme, the height in selected tab stop the align of next tabs. Please, check it or send me access to a site for test.

    Hi David,

    do you plan to release a version compatible with moodle 3.3? Do you have any dates?

    I installed the plugin for 3.3, but the announcement doesn't work. Is there a way around this?

    Thank you
  • Dear David, very good contribution, I would like you to help me with the following. Update the plugin and most of my courses have been unconfigured, the information in the tabs has gone to one of the tabs and hiding the others.
    There is some way to get back to the state they were in, ie with the tabs with their contents and showing.

    I'll be waiting for your prompt response, thank you very much

    Hi Richard...

    I think that it is not a bug from the format, maybe the error was in the process or other external reason. What version did you upgrade? Did you change to other format before the upgrade? Did change the sections number into the course or only hide the topics? Check this in order to find posible reasons.
