    I've noted that this plugin uses yui2 libraries.
    Do note that moodle version 2.4 (in development) has moved from using yui2 to yui2in3 as described by MDL-34741.
    Here is a link to using yui2in3 :

    I was translating the reservation plugin into spanish and noticed a possible typo in one English language string:

    2.3 [configlocations,reservation] "In this page you can magage standard locations for reservations in this Moodle site"

    "magage" should be "manage" (I think).

    Thank in advance for your help.

    Hello Roberto, thanks! for your 2.4 upgrade! Only one problem: our teachers have to assign the students, not the students themselves. However, when a reservation is still empty, there is no way to manually assign others. Only when there is already someone assigned, then you get the tabs with view and manage. Any Idees?

    Ciao Roberto,
    ho installato il modulo sulla versione 2.5 e sembra funzionare.
    Prima di passare alla piattaforma in produzione, volevo chiederti se avevi già fatto delle prove per questa versionedi moodle ed eventualmente riscontrato dei problemi.

    There is a little issue with this plugin: when it sends e-mails to teachers, then the sender is Moodle administrator (lib.php line 375).
    This is a bit confusing as the admin comes from get_admin() function -- witch is the first admin and may not be connected to the reservations at all.
    Users may also reply to this administrator e-mail, witch is not good.

    I suggest to make the sender to teachers the "noreplay" aadress -- seems much more logical.

    lib.php line 375:

    if (! email_to_user($teacher, get_admin(), $postsubject, $posttext, $posthtml)) {
    -> if (! email_to_user($teacher, $CFG->noreplyaddress, $postsubject, $posttext, $posthtml)) {

    Hi, first of all great plugin, easy to use.

    Quick question though - I need to create a lot of events with registration that will occur week after week and I am searching for the 'Repeated events' function from standard Calendar events - I can't seem to find it.

    Is it possible to make 'repeating reservation events'?

    Hi Roberto,

    I am wondering if there was a way to restrict the cancelling of the reservation if a teacher were to manually put a student in there. In other words, I don't want a student to cancel and teacher assigned reservation. Any ideas?
