    Unfortunately when I upgraded to moodle 2.5 I immediately received a 404 error when trying to view the certificate. Is there anything I can do to rectify this?

    Certificados en pdf no editables
    Hola a todos les solicito de su orientación ya que recientemente e instalado en moodle 2.4.5 y e agregado el módulo de certificados y se ejecuta adecuadamente pero al momento de generar el documento no me respeta las propiedades de no edición y copia del documento.
    Las características de mi servidor son:
    Sistema operativo Solaris 11.
    Php 5.3.10
    Postgress 8.3.1
    También si me pudieran decir cuál es la librería o las opciones que debo revisar para ver si puede ser ese el motivo de que el documento no se genere con seguridad ya que me permite editarlo y eso no debe ser.

    Certified non-editable pdf
    Hi all I ask you as your guidance recently and installed moodle 2.4.5 added ye module certificates and runs properly but when I generate the document does not respect the properties and no edition copy of the document.
    My server specs are:
    Solaris 11 Operating System.
    php 5.3.10
    Postgress 8.3.1
    Also if I could say what the Seller or options I should check to see if that may be the reason that the document is generated safely and that allows me to edit it and it should not be.

    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?

    Hi Rich
    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.

    "Hey guys,
    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

    I have small problem with plugin.

    On certificate show incorrect my name:

    "Jaros?aw Maciejewski"
    "Jarosław Maciejewski"

    can you fix it? (maybe utf-8 encode)

    Hi there,
    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?

    Hi there,
    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?

    Can we make a condition for generating the certificate, like the trainee must complete some activities to get his certificate
