Advanced forum are designed to increase engagement and provide a modern alternative to standard Moodle forums.

Advanced forum reduce complexity and work like the modern messaging systems students use every day on the web and their mobile devices.

Unlike standard forums advanced forums are responsive, so users can read and post from their mobile or tablet. Advanced forums have been specifically designed to improve the usability and accessibility of Moodle forums. 

Posting and replying are all done via ajax to save page loads, take less clicks and increase engagement, while maintaining the user's context in a discussion thread.

Advanced forums contain a number of additional features including the ability to see who has engaged in a discussion before you open it, a setting to show recent forum posts on the course page, subscribing to individual threads, private replies and an option to allow anonymous posting, post bookmarking, along with all the features standard moodle forums have.


Advanced forums are design by Mooodlerooms in partnership with The University of Montana.

    @Sam Chaffee: Thanks for your response, I know its hard giving support questions in these forums, so I appreciate it.

    When I add that line of code in, Advanced Grading Methods does appear, but when an instructor does try to grade it throws an error:

    Exception - Call to undefined method gradingform_rubric_instance::update_outcome_attempts()

    If there were a readme file or directions with the core hacks necessary to make this work, I think many admins might appreciate it. This is a gap in core moodle that your plugins fill nicely together. Thanks!

    Hi Ed, this is a bug in Moodlerooms Grader. I've created a ticket to address it. If possible will you bring issues like this up in the Github repos in the future? It makes going back and forth on something like this a bit easier.

    Hello,
    we wanted to use this plugin on our moodle system.
    So we tested the plugin but we get the following message, every time we click into a discussion or leave the current page:
    "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved."

    Is there a way to disable this message?

    Hi Carina,

    are you seeing this issue with all browsers? If only on a specific browser, which one(s)?

    Hello David,

    thank you very much for your reply.
    I've just tested it again in different browsers. I have the issue with firefox (Version: 56.0.2), chrome (62.0.3202.94) and edge (25.10586.672.0). Only with the Internet Explorer (11.1176.10586.0) I don't have this issue.

    When will this plugin be available for Moodle 3.3?

    I installed this plugin for Moodle 3.4. It seems to work. However, if the faculty replied to a student's post privately (by checking the private reply box), that student sees the faculty private reply but there are no "reply" button for the student to reply to the faculty's private reply. I would think that student should be able to reply to faculty private replies. (If the faculty reply is not private, then I do see a "reply button" for student to reply to). Is this how the forum is supposed to work? (not having "reply" button for private replies?)

    If the student or faculty posted a Private reply, then even the site admin can't see that private reply. Is this true?

    Will this plugin be update to support Moodle 3.4 in the near future? If so, when do you expect to launch an updated release?

    Hi
    We have configured the forum to use Group Mode = Separate groups. A lecturer is allocated to each group. When viewing posts on the forum, lecturers only see posts from students within their group - as expected. However, when clicking "View posters" under forum administration, posts from all students in the course are displayed i.e. not limited to the lecturer's group. Is there a setting we have missed? Is it an issue that will be resolved in a future version? We are using plugin version 3.2.3.
    Thanks

    Hi all,

    When send a post using the forum advance activity, the option in selected that all post are anonymous. When receiving the email to the mailbox from noreply@moodle.ucl.ac.uk, it shows sen "by Anonymous user" but when clicking on the link it takes your to the profile of the person posting, hence its not an anonymous post. Any ideas why this is? thanks.


    How to create issue


    1. create a forum (advanced) activity

    2. ensure that "Allow anonymous posting" is ticked in the settings

    3. in manage forum descriptions, ensure that subscribe button is "yes"

    4. submit a post

    5. You'll receive an email into your mailbox from noreply@moodle.ucl.ac.uk

    6. Click on the "by Anonymous link"

    7. This takes you to the users profile defeating the purpose of anonymous.

    Any anyeone else experienced or expericing this issue?

    Hi there, we recently upgraded to Moodle 3.4.2+ and are finding a problem:

    1. Add a new discussion in a Moodleroom (Advanced Forum) forum.
    2. Click the "Use advanced editor" link.
    3. Click the "Hide advanced editor" link.
    The text area for the post content disappears and can't be recovered until making a new post. All text entered is lost.

    Anyone else seeing this issue?

    Hi there, there seems to be a problem with this plugin. We're running on Moodle version 3.2.2 and have Advanced forum version 3.2.3. When student select in Preferences > Forum Preferences > Forum auto-subscribe > Yes when I post, subscribe me to that forum discussion it doesn't actually subscribe the student when they reply to a discussion. How do I rectify this?

    Hi, Is it possible to hide posts by other users... only see own posts?
