Something has changed with the certificate. I used to be able to customize the certificate for a single activity or give it a name. Now it defaults to the course name. We have a training course in which the students are able to get several certificates based on different activities and tests. What happened to this customization?

I have upgraded my moodle to 2.6 and installed the latest version of certificate and now my certificates are blank? Any ideas please? Thanks.

We too have the same problem....although it seems to only affect Chrome. Works fine in IE and Safari. Can't find a solution yet.

An important message about this plugin from the maintainer, Mark Nelson:

As Luis said: Mark has posted on 3 March.
Sorry about my absence on these forums recently.
I have moved overseas and have gone from working full-time at HQ, to only part-time. At HQ we were fortunate enough to have a week every so often where we were free to work on our own Moodle related projects, the 'Custom certificate' activity being mine. However, since I am now only contracting I do not have this luxury which is the reason this project has not been updated in a while.
The foundation is there but it still has a lot of work to be done. However, I am not sure when it will be continued. Perhaps someone would want to take the reins?
As we all know, life moves on. Does anyone have any recent news for Certificate? I'm wondering about 2.7

We have an issue that allows people to print the certificate for a course without course completion. Is there some sort of lock available to prevent this?

I am the admin of moodle. I want to download all issued certificates for printing purpose.
Please tell me someone how can I do it. There is option available in moodle to download report in XLS, text and ODS format. I want to download all in PDF format (with Design).

are there any plans to add Moodle 2.8 support to this plugin? Or is it fully compatible and just the compatibility info has not been upgraded yet?

Do you know how to include start and end date in a 2.7 certificate?
Thanks in advance!!

How can we generate certificate if course format is Scorm?
Wed, Mar 11, 2015, 9:08 PM
Can we make a condition for generating the certificate, like the trainee must complete some activities to get his certificate

Certificate cant't output Chinese.
What is the cause?

Hi, How can we take name from "Course full name" to "Course short name".
I would like to have course name from "Course short name" rather than "Course full name" field.
