    Does the new version (2016071402) restore the styling of the tabs when restoring a course?

    We are trying to install Onetopic with Composer using repository

    But because it isn't marked 3.3 compatible we cannot install it to Moodle 3.3. Can you mark it as 3.3 compatible?

    I published a new version, to moodle 3.3+ by now.

    Please, help me testing because the version change some core functionalities:
    - Supports "stealth" activities mode
    - Option "Number of sections" (numsections) was removed according to the core formats proposal
    - Enhancement support to boost theme

    Hi Gemma...

    Efectly, the error was fixed in the 2018010601 release. Please, test and inform if work fine to you. I need more comments in order to change the version state to "Release candidate".

    It appears that if a person selects the One Topic format, the edit link for the tab gets disabled if you add a table to the section's Summary box and the tab's visibility is set to "hide". If you change the format to another format, like Collapsed Topics, the edit link is clickable again and you can edit the section. However, once you go back to One Topic, the edit link is no longer "clickable" anymore when the tab is hidden. My hope that this is a minor bug and can be easily fixed in a future update.
    Thank you,

    Hi Denise...

    I couldn't reproduce the error. Maybe, you did paste a table with html errors, could be?

    Can you send more information? Moodle and Onetopic versión, print screens or something else. You can use the official issues page:

    San Jaun is working all OK with our Moodle v3.3.4+ and with Essential v3.3.1.2
    The only issue (which has been the same through many versions) is when making a tab the child of a previous tab there is an option to input the "text of the first tab in sublevel". It never works for me as it always defaults to "Index" even if I add in different text but its easy to edit the section title.

    Hi Yvonne...

    It is not a bug. The name to the first tab (index) is seted in parent tab, not in child tab.
