Hi Filippos, Just discovered a fix for the video alignment problem. Add the following to the end of your styles.css file for Journal.
#page-mod-journal-report .mediaplugin {
width: 100% !important;
}
To see it in operation, you will need to purge your cache, or put your Moodle into theme designer mode and reload your Journal report.php page.

I am running Moodle v3.6. Should I pull the master branch or the MOODLE_36_STABLE branch? If I'm supposed to pull master, can you explain why the MOODLE_36_STABLE branch exists? I only ask because I've been running the MOODLE_36_STABLE branch, and Moodle is telling me that there's still an update.

This seems like something I need, but we'd want each student to be able to be prompted after curriculum materials to make entries to a journal or notebook for themselves, to add to and reference throughout the course. But we wouldn't want students seeing each others notes, only their own. Is this doable with this plugin?

Hi, thank you for this great plugin. We would like to propose a few modification and know if you would be interested to make some of them into the plugin. We can help with the development.

1 - Bring all presentation layer into a renderer+mustache tpl. So theme developer can modify the plugin's appearance if they want to.

2 - Add a completion status "Student must submit an entry to complete it". This way, the student would see the journal entry as completed so it doesn't require it's attention anymore.

3 - Add an option to prevent the student to edit a graded entry. Could be triggered on/off at the entry level.

4 - Student can manually mark an entry as "ready to be graded". So teacher know when to grade an entry.

What do you guys think? Anything you would want to add to your plugin?

Any suggestion/enhancement are welcome

Thank you

This activity is not compatible with the Moodle Mobile app, is that correct?

Hi, is this compatible to Moodle 3.8? I saw there in versions only until 3.7 but mayyyyybe someone forgot to update there... I don't know... what happens if I try to install this in 3.8? Defects? Does not work?
• Fri, Feb 7, 2020, 12:58 AM
If not compatible does anyone know any other plugin that is compatible with 3.8, safe and similar to this (mod_journal) and we could use to replace this functionality?
• Sat, Feb 8, 2020, 5:16 AM
We upgraded it now for Moodle 3.8

I am gettint the following error on the index.php page:
Before calling format_text(), the content must be processed with file_rewrite_pluginfile_urls()
line 1347 of /lib/weblib.php: call to debugging()
line 114 of /mod/journal/index.php: call to format_text()

Fix:

$description = file_rewrite_pluginfile_urls($journal->intro, 'pluginfile.php', \$context->id, 'mod_journal', 'intro', null);
