    Installed Custom Certificate 3.9.12020061502 Created a template. Can see it when I click manage Templates, edit template, save changes and preview. Looks fine. It shows up blank if I add it as an activity. I saw a similar question on the moodle forums. He was told to "publish the template". I see that that is supposed to be on the manage templates page. See it in the code. but cannot get to the page. Don't see anything in the db tables for this plugins to manually add it. So I'm lost as to how to "publish the template". How do you do that to get the custom certificate to show up for students in a custom certificate activity?

    Hi Mark, I am really impressed by this plug in, thank you for the great work! However, I would need a version without Monotype owned fonts. My Moodle version is 3.3.9. Would it be possible to republish the plug-in?

    Hello Marek, is it possible to add a unified numbering in the certificate or whether to work for such a function to appear? an example of a unique certificate number: number / month / year / text abbreviation. 67/07/21 / ADM

    This extension allows downloading in various formats such as .pdf or hmtl or excel to see the list of people who were certified, "Download table data as" but the table does not show the data of "username" or "number ID "and I need that specific information for each user to be in that list.
    Only "Full name", "E-mail address", "Issue date" and "Code" appear in the exported file.
    I would like to know if there is any way for the "username" or "ID number" information to appear in the downloaded file.

    Hello there,

    I have a course in which all participants with a score greater than 89 are generated a certificate, all of them were generated less than one user, I checked and the score is 99, but I was configured as a manager in the course and not as student, I made the change, it is already a student, but the certificate has not yet been generated for that student, how can I generate one?
