    The version numbers indicated are not consistent with what appears in the source code repository. I cannot find Build 35, nor does it appear in the GitHub repository. The file available via the direct download is also build 34, not build 35. Could this be fixed?

    I love the journal activity - its simplicity and ease of use being its main attraction. I am using the Journal activity on one project where I want to 'lock' the users responses - I want them to still see their entries, but not be able to edit them (or start a new one). I don't seem to be able to do this though, either by changing the settings or the permissions. Is there a way that this could be done? Thanks in advance.

    Hello Sir,

    I am in the process of upgrading to moodle 3.7+ and I would like to ask
    if there will be an upgrade of this excellent plugin for moodle 3.7+, or can I simply use the 3.6 version? Thank you very much.

    Hi Filippos, I am using the 3.6 version in Moodle 3.7. The only problem I see, is that if a user records a video, In their view it shows as center aligned. When the teacher sees it in the report view it is right aligned. Depending upon the theme used, some of the video may be hidden on the right side.

    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

    Looking forward to reading your input

    Thank you

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