Global message is a plug-in that enables a Moodle administrator to create automatic pop-up messages. The messages will appear for the users depending on the rules applied to each message.

A new message will be displayed once for each user when they log in, then will not be displayed again.

 List of message examples:

  • Important server outage in the next 1/2 hour.
  • Welcome message to new user. First time logged in.
  • Holiday Message (e.g. New Year shutdown).
  • The lab for the course Introductory to Chemistry has been changed.
  • Any other important notices that you would like to show to the users...

    From your message I suspect that you have installed this in the "mod" folder. It needs to be installed into the "moodle/local" folder.

    HI There. I'm trying to install this on 1.9.14. I'm not quite clear where to put this. I have a 'moodledata' folder but no 'moodle' folder. Any help much appreciated.

    Hi, I successfully installed the plugin, however whenever I click on the option on the admin panel I get an error saying "error while reading the database" do you know why this may be happening? I'm currently using moodle 2.2.1, Thanks!

    RE 2.2 , I spent an hour or so to get this working. The DB tables install in local_globalmessages etc:

    $this->db->insert_record('globalmessages_rules', (object) $rulesdata);
    ---
    > $this->db->insert_record('local_globalmessages_rules', (object) $rulesdata);
    and the yui select is 2.8 not 2.9


    1106 mv ../../local/globalmessage/assets/js/yui-selector.js ../../local/globalmessage/assets/js/yui-selector.js.O
    1107 vi ../../local/globalmessage/assets/js/yui-selector.js.O
    1108 cp /Library/WebServer/Documents/moodle/lib/yui/2.9.0/build/selector/selector.js ../../local/globalmessage/assets/js/yui-selector.js

    Hi all, I don't get email notification when you post question here. It is better if you post in the forum or send message so I can help you with any issues smile.
    Cheers, Mohamed

    @shailesh there is no web page for plugin usage documentation. The plugin has an info page containing information about how to use it.

    Quick question. Is there a way to use this plugin to set up pop-up messages (for teachers or admins) so that they know if a student has NOT yet submit an assignment which will be due in another 24 or 48 hours? Thanks!
