    Hi, are there any plans to make this plugin compatible with 2.8? We're actively using it with 2.6 but plan to upgrade in summer and need to know if we need to move to a new format.

    I've just tried this on a 2.8 test Moodle and it all seems to be working fine.

    Thanks Sam, as it wouldn't allow me to install via site linkup I was worried to try it, but done it via zip download/install on my test 2.8 site and seems ok as well.

    Hi. We just tested it on 2.9 and it does not work. Any ideas if this plugin is 'dead'? Hope not cause we really like it and it is our default format.
    Thanks for any answers or hints.

    If you use a bullet list on the main / course overview page, the bullets are visible in edit mode but not in view mode.
    It is not only in the title description field and the label resource, but also in the description field for the other resources/activities when you check the box to show the description on the overview page under the title


    this is the sinner:

    ul.sectionul li
    {
    list-style-type: none;
    }

    After removing this element, you end up with a single bullet above the tabs (I think it is from section zero?)

    We use the template in Moodle 2.6 (but the problem is also visible in my 2.9 and 3.0 try-outs)

    Some conversations over in the Formats Forum: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=323539
    I think we are all wondering if this will be OK for 3.0

    My guess is 'no' Christopher. You may be out of luck with these guys. Sadly, I think they have moved on. See https://oohoo.biz/index.php/en/plug-ins/display/tab-display/ The last update here is 2012.
    There are some other alternatives. Try a search for 'tabs' you'll find Generico and at least one other tabs plugin.

    Or you can use Onetopic maybe?

    Hi Derek,

    It is a pitty that onetopic is missing the visual ques from TabTopics: the buttons on top where you can store keywords for the sections behind the tabs.

    Onetopic is "too abstract" for a normal user/teacher..like the old zoom-in/zoom-out function from the old standard template - even when you replace the icons with a magnifying glass with a pkus or a minus sign in the glass.
