Important information.

The flashcard module was originally written by Valery for 1.9. It was hosted on the old Moodle plugins database, there was also an version initially ported to Moodle 2.

Tomek took over the work on it, finished porting into Moodle 2 and done few releases on the new plugins database page (this one). The latest version of this module is 3.2 and is available on github: . It includes set of fixes from alekiy that should get it to work on Moodle 2.5. You can use it but this development is dis-continued.

Valery has now updated his branch of flashcard module into Moodle 2.5. The source code is and the latest release is also on this, new plugins database as 2.4.0 (Build 2012040100). This is the branch you should be using now.

Both versions of flashcard module have diverged and are not compatible with each other. It's not possible to easily switch from one version (3.1 or 3.2) to another (2.4.0) without re-installing (and hence loosing all data).

    Hello Valery, hello Aaron. Are there news when the plugin can be used for Moodle 2.9?
    Due to the previous comments, I am a little unsure if the version in brench MOODLE29_STABLE is already fully operational.

    I am using Moodle 2.9.2+ (Build: 20150918) and the latest flashcard version. I have 1000 cards to import. The system takes the first 70 or so and then completes the import without the rest of them. The import data is correct. Is there an import limit?

    Hi Erick, what i suspect here is a limitation in the length of the URL or moe exactly in the size of HTTP parameters sent by the import form. For such amount of cards, i would need changing the import strategy by uploading a csv file...

    That would be extremely helpful. Are you willing to do that? Is there any other way around the limitation?

    Hello, This is a great module and we use it quite a bit. I am experiencing an issue with flashcard decks using images. I created the decks in Moodle 3.0.2+ and recently updated the flashcard plug-in and Moodle to 3.0.4+ and when I try to create a new deck or update an existing deck I get the following error:

    Exception - Call to undefined function flashcard_print_image()

    My text based card decks seem to be unaffected.

    I have sucessfully installed the plugin and was hoping to make it look more attractive for our students... But I am in no way a developper. Could anyone help me do this? If so, could you contact me at jcamus{AT}winescholarguild{DOT}org? thanks! merci!

    Hello, I am trying to import a set of Flash cards... but nothing happens. I choose seperator ";" and paste something like:

    The seven primary grape varieties in Alsace;Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Muscat
    Klevner or Pinot Vrai is more commonly known as . . .;. . . Pinot Blanc.
    T or F? Riesling is indigenous to France.;False. Riesling is indigenous to Germany (the Rhine Valley)

    Am I doing anything wrong?

    Ok... finally manage to import with text seperator ":" but not with "," and ";"... weird. The problem is... ":" is used in many of my cards. Any clue on why I can't use ";"? And actually, wouldn't it be possible to chose anohter seperator like "|" which would not be a common punctuation ?

    Good plugin, but is it not possible to import from a glossary? I thought this would be one of the main functions of a flashcard plug in.

    Hello Valery, we just installed the plugin, works ok. We can add pictures and soundfiles, but as soon as we want to edit them, it says for soundfiles: Call to undefined function flashcard_play_sound() , and for pictures: Call to undefined function flashcard_print_image() Are we doing something wrong? Tnx in advance for your help smile
