NOTE: This plugin is no longer receiving any new features. Only bug fixes are being applied. I have been working on a new plugin which can be located at which allows complete customisation of the PDF via the browser, whereas this plugin requires FTP and PHP knowledge. Both plugins can be installed on a site at once with no issues.

See the certificate docs for information on how to customise your certificate and for additional help please visit the certificate forums.

    Hello everyone,

    I did last week the upgrade for the 2.9 version and since then my students can see this message when they try to print their own certificate :

    "Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator at to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    It's not the first time it happens unfortunately. Is there's something I can do to avoid this problem ?

    Thank you !

    Hi everyone,
    We need to download or print all the certificates massively from the admin account.

    Exists anyone method to do this? Or maybe we can extract the certificate per user with any method in the web service?

    Thans a lot!

    Hi Everyone ,

    I want student transcript (downloadable in student front page area). Can anyone advice is there any modified certificate plugin which can serve this purpose? OR do i need to customize the certificate plugin? I actually need transcript of all courses a student attended with grades and other information. Transcript should be variable length and should be in report form like A4 format. Any help any idea?

    Hello Mark,
    I've a question regarding your plugin certificate. In your plugin you can choose grade from single activity in a course or overall score from all activites.
    Is there a way to display name of selected activity on certificate instead of course name.
    I'm asking this, becouse I need to have severall certificates from diffrent activities in single course. An this would help me identify from which activity it is.

    Arkadiusz - Sorry, this will require PHP knowledge. You will have to edit the mod/certificate/type//certificate.php file to add that logic. I am no longer supporting this plugin, but instead am working on

    Thx, for the replay Mark.
    I managed to resolve the problem using custom text field.

    Does the new plugin allows you to import certificates created in old plugin to the new version?

    Is it possible to set the certificates to expire or at least to delete the records so that the trainees can retake the course/exam?

    Hi there!!

    Is there a way to add some "locking options" so the users can get the certificate only if they finish a course?
