    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.

    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.

    Hi David,

    In the journal function, is it possible for lecturers to have access to the editor tool bar when sending responses? They want to be able to italicise and bold the feedback etc. I sent this request to Pukunui as they are our host, and their response was to contact you and see if you would be able to do this. Amy

    Hello, I am using Journal with Moodle 2.6. We are thinking to update Moodle to 2.9/3 so I was wondering if the latest version of the Journal allows to insert media as (images and videos) to the entries? Thank you

    Hi Yazie, no, it is not supported, I've seen the same question repeated a few times , both here and in the forum, I've created to address it, it I can find time to work on this these next weeks I would backport the change to Moodle 3.0.

    This is great news David. I just downloaded and installed your master branch into one of my Moodle 3.0.1+ sites and admin, teacher, and students can all add pictures and media. So far I have added a picture, embed a video, and made an audio recording using PoodLL Anywhere and they all worked great. Looking forward to the official release version. Just wish I had the skill to help more with coding so we could get the same capability added to the feedback.

    Thanks for commenting AL. Yeah, that would make sense too (feedback with full HTML editor capabilities) feel free to open an issue and I/you/anyone can work on it at some point. It is basically the same than in but would require extra stuff, db structure change to include feedbackformat, an upgrade process...

    We're using activity completion and noticed that with the Journal the only option for automatic completion is when the user receives a grade. Could we have an option to have it automatically marked as complete when they submit something?

    I like this Journal Plugin. Each student / Participant sees his own journal entry. I am on Moodle 3 and installed the latest version of your plugin. As requested by everyone it still dosen't seem to have the file picker/ attach option. Can you add this functionality ? . Is their any other plugin that can be used to create this kind of a private document within moodle ? Can we have multiple journal entries per user

    Hi Rama,

    Thanks. The filepicker for the students submission editor will be a new feature in the Moodle 3.1 version of the journal module. There is a unique journal entry for each user, you can create multiple journal activities as an alternative, although not ideal I can not think of any other alternative using mod_journal.
