Moodle plugin which displays information pages which exist outside any course, imprint or faq pages for example, complete with Moodle navigation and theme

The local_staticpage plugin is designed to fetch a static HTML document from disk, enrich it with Moodle navigation and theme and deliver it as a standard Moodle page which exists outside any course.

Static pages will be available on catchy URLs like http://www.yourmoodle.com/static/faq.html and can be linked from Moodle HTML blocks, from your Moodle theme footer and so on. Using the local_staticpages plugin, you can create information pages within moodle, but without misusing a whole course just for showing a textbox.

See README file for details.

    Just to be sure: Did you also change the URL you are trying to open to lowercase?

    yes both url and file name are lowercase
    I have the following message in plugin page which suggest it is server problem not plugin
    ************************************
    The following document file was found:
    faqarabic2.eng.html

    From the document file's filename, Moodle derived the following pagename:
    faqarabic2.eng

    The document should be available at the following URL, but actually a browser won't be able to download and view it (perhaps there is something wrong with your webserver configuration - see README file for details):
    http://localhost/lms/local/staticpage/view.php?page=faqarabic2.eng

    The document should be available to at the following clean URL, but actually a browser won't be able to download and view it (perhaps there is something wrong with your webserver or mod_rewrite configuration - see README file for details):
    http://localhost/lms/static/faqarabic2.eng.html

    The document will be available for the following language:
    All languages
    ***********************************************
    I added line in httpd.conf still did not work

    thank you so much

    Sorry for the late answer, I was unavailable for some days.

    Now I see that you have a filename "faqarabic2.eng.html". Please change that to "faqarabic2.en.html" (two letters used for language identification) and check if it works then.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Alexander - what I am trying to do is to create html pages using static page that post within the Moodle container - rather than as an open page outside the container. I am not sure if Static Page is designed for this - but humbly ask if you can help me.

    Hi Simon,

    I have to admit that I have no idea what you mean with "Moodle container"...

    Hi Alexander, great plugin! However version 2.9 doesn't seem to be working properly in MOODLE 3.0

    Do you have any plans to release an update?

    Hi Bob,

    I'm sorry that there are problems in 3.0 for you.
    Yes, we plan to release updates, but testing and development has not started yet due to our internal release cycle.

    Would you mind describe your problem in a ticket on https://github.com/moodleuulm/moodle-local_staticpage/issues so I can have a deeper look at it?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hi,

    Thanks for your plug-in.
    In my case, I just try this plugin in Moodle 3.0. It's work well but I can't use RewriteEngine in my case. Not sure there's a link with version of Moodle.

    best regards.

    Hi,

    In fact works fine. In my case, I need to adapt to my hosting. I just added :
    RewriteBase /
    and modify the Rewrite Rule.

    Thanks again for your plug-in. I use to "Site policy" + "FAQ" + "course information".

    Thanks, clemens, for your comment about 3.0. Great to hear that it works there.

    Bob, perhaps then there is a basic problem with your installation which is not related to the Moodle version. Anyway, please submit your bug report in Github for analysis.

    I'm back with some feedback: I uninstalled the plugin, and reinstalled it manually (by copying the files to the local folder using ftp). It works fine now.

    I first installed the plugin by dragging and dropping the zip file into the MOODLE 3.0 interface; maybe there's something wrong there.
