    Hi Doc,

    Yes, you need to modify a few files, defining the new setting in settings.php or in mod_form.php (depening on the level you want to set it) and checking it's value in lib.php functions.

    When I try and access a Journal it is giving me this error...

    A file permissions error has occurred. Please check the permissions on the script and the directory it is in and try again.

    Hi Graham,

    I'm looking for that language string and I can not find it. Are you sure the problem comes from the journal module? What Moodle and mod_journal versions are you using?

    I can add a journal to a topic window, set permissions for it but when I try and view the content it takes me to that error.

    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.
