Your Moodle version

Course formats: Weekly format reversed

Maintained by Picture of Unknown Maintainer Unknown Maintainer
Weekly format listed in reverse format so first week at bottom and current week at the top

This is simply the Moodle default weeks format but listing the weeks in reverse order.

The first week will always be at the bottom and the current week will always be at the top.

Future weeks are completely hidden from students but will be "unlocked" as the date arrives. You should keep future weeks set as visible, as it uses Moodle visiblility settings for all "unlocked" (present and past) weeks.


This plugin is part of set Seeking new maintainer.

    As far as I have tested this version should work with 2.1 and 2.2 it may work with 2.0 too. I have just realised that 2.3.2+ does not work and will require a different download.

    Hi Mat,

    Does the 2.3 version work with 2.4?

    I think I have a bug here.

    Sections are displayed with the incorrect date if I reduce the number of weeks in the course.

    For example if I make the course 10 weeks starting on May 11, The last three weeks are in July. Now if I reduce the number of weeks in the course settings to 3, when I'm in editing mode the sections have the correct May dates. However, when I turn off editing mode the sections are displayed as being in June and unavailable.

    I'm using Moodle 2.4.1 with plans to upgrade to 2.5.

    Sorry, I meant to say July when editing mode is off, not June.

    Robert, thank you for reporting that error. It was affecting the 2.4 and 2.5 versions of the code. Fixes have now been applied.

    Thanks for the Weekly format reversed.
    Is there a tweek to show only the next four incidents (scheduled classes) and have all other invisible to students (or that role)?

    so if i download the release 1.2 for moodle 2.5 that is attached to this topic, then the rolodex view should work?

    Why are future weeks hidden? I use the following week to post readings, resources, etc... that students need to work on for the coming week. Can this feature be turned off?

    I am receiving this error: "Function print_section() is deprecated. Please use course renderer function course_section_cm_list() instead." Is that something that can be ignored?

    Hi Mat,

    I noticed what looks to me as a bug - the current week is not showing up if it's the last week of the course (and is not showing up in the hidden section either).

    If I add an extra week to the course, the current week shows up. This appears to be the case for both admin and student.

    Moodle version is 2.5.5, course format version used is: 2013051100

    Any clues why this is happening?

    I want to form my lesson when the user participates in the course of the period such as a day for him to be displayed.
