    Hi Graham,

    Have you checked the permissions of the files under mod/journal directory?

    After installing the plugin and adding it as an activity to a course and then clicking on it, I got this error message ' an error occurred while processing this directive]' I downloaded the plugin to my computer then uploaded. I choose activity module(mod) as the plugin type although I couldn't find any info on what type I should choose.
    Any idea why I'm getting this error?

    Hi Michael,

    For what you say you followed the normal testing instructions, can you enable debugging mode (site administration -> development -> debugging. debug to DEVELOER and debugdisplay ticked

    Hi Tyler,

    Yes, I will add the new version for 2.6. I haven't tried it, but the same code should work so feel free to test the latest mod_journal version in a Moodle 2.6 testing site.

    Hi David,
    I am using Journal with Moodle 2.6 and on first sight it seems to work fine. However, when I add comments to entries and save them it get the following message "Notice: Undefined variable: vars in /path/to/moodle/mod/journal/report.php on line 78".
    I had a look at report.php and line 78. Can it be that the "vars" should be a "vals"? If I change vo "vals" saving entries no longer displays the message.

    I've uploaded new versions of the plugin with the problem fixed for Moodle 2.4, Moodle 2.5 and a new version for Moodle 2.6.

    Thanks for the report.

    Is it true what this says: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=259569#p1125323 that Journal does not support inserting images in a response?

    Hello,

    Can you download Journal entries to print out?

    Thanks Graham

    Hi Derek,

    If I remember correctly no, it does not accept uploads; I've been only updating the code to keep it working with the new moodle releases, but I haven't added any kind of new functionality like integration with the filepicker nor a component area for mod_journal. Feel free to contribute a patch adding support for it and I will be glad to merge it.

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi Graham,

    This functionality is not available from the module code, you can change the page blocks settings (docking them) and tune the page layout to use the browser print feature to do it.
