    I am currently testing the plugin for v3.5/v3.6, but I am facing an issue of like this. And need help from someone to resolve this. A PR would be appreciated.
    My code is here:

    Coding problem: $PAGE->context was not set. You may have forgotten to call require_login() or $PAGE->set_context(). The page may not display correctly as a result
    line 493 of /lib/pagelib.php: call to debugging()
    line 820 of /lib/pagelib.php: call to moodle_page->magic_get_context()
    line 1432 of /lib/weblib.php: call to moodle_page->__get()
    line 93 of /local/reminders/contents/course_reminder.class.php: call to format_string()

    Happy to let all of you know that I have released the plugin for Moodle v3.5 and above, just a moment ago.

    Can we add multiple events against one date?

    @Maria Lena
    As long as you can add multiple events for a single date in calendar, the plugin will do its work.

    Hi, sorry for my English. I have the problem that after installing the plug in, now the main page requires login.

    @Andres de Caso @Justin Case
    I want to reproduce this. Could you please tell me which version of Moodle are you using and possible reproducible steps.

    It happened with version 3.5.2+ and with 3.6.4+.

    I'm using 3.6.2. After installation, I was working the website's footer, and that was when the issue started. Not sure if the two are causal, though. But uninstalling the plugin solved the problem. I'm using the latest version of Essential theme.

    @Justin Case it seems that *some* users reported this issue regarding redirecting to the login page after a recent Moodle version upgrade.
    Could you please remove 'require_login()' function in coursesettings.php file in the local reminder dir and let me know whether the issue fixed or not.

    Removed the require_login function from cron lib file and released a new version 1.6.1.

    Thanks everyone who reported this.

    There are some problems with "Custom notification period". There is no notification 1 hour before event. Moodle version 3.7.1. Anyone else has this problem?

    @Isuru Just wanted to check that as you have mentioned in the older thread that you will be considering the possibility implementing a feature where it will not send the reminders if the activity is completed/passed, So are you able to achieve this in any recent versions?

    Firstly thanks for creating this really useful plugin, I have only recently discovered it and already love it. I notice that the emails from 'Course' events include the description, whereas emails from 'Group' events don't include the description - is there a reason for this? Would it be possible for the group reminders to also include the description (or give us the option of including it if we want it)? Thanks in advance.
