    Looks great Carlos!

    If you don't mind, I have a few suggestions for a future release of this wonderful plugin. Would it be possible to:

    1) Have a dropdown menu containing a list of certificate templates so that they would not have to be re-created each time someone creates a course? That way one could load a certificate and then just make minor changes as needed.

    2) Have Moodle filter support? We run a bilingual (English/French) site where users would want their certificates to be created the in the current site language. The functions format_string() and format_text() would need to be applied. For more information, see http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Output_functions.

    3) Expand the fonts? No matter what I do, the font always seems to be narrow. I was also going to ask if it would also be possible to add more sizes so that I could make fonts larger but then realized that I could probably do that in HTML. Still, it would be nice to have sizes available up to 72 pt.

    4) Make the QR code in the Test Certificate verifiable? Either that or include a message somewhere that says it can't be verified. I spent some time testing the QR code with my phone only to eventually realize that it wasn't the Captcha I was typing that wasn't working.

    5) Give the code below the QR Code image a solid background colour in case it is printed over an image?

    That's it for now. Thanks again for all your great work!

    Best regards,

    Michael Milette

    This Simple Certificate activity is broken on SQL Server due to the usage of "LIMIT ... OFFSET". See https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=222296#p1112136 and https://github.com/bozoh/moodle-mod_simplecertificate/issues/76

    Using the QR code gives this error: error/Invalid certificate code

    I verified the codes automatically populated match what's in the original PDFs, so it's the code provided.

    Also having trouble with including a background image. The PDF keeps rendering the image then the text (if I position an image) or no background (if I set the image as a background). Will this be something to expected fixed in the near future?

    Olá Carlos, faço minhas as palavras do Mark, algum plano para o update para a versão 2.8?

    Hi Carlos, I will use Mark words to ask you, is there any plan to update this to Moodle 2.8?

    Até mais,

    Hi Carlos, I have installed this plugin yet, I can't seem to know how to put a border on it. I am thinking it could be done through codes yet, are there any more possible solutions so that it would not be that complex when the user is a non-techie one? Likewise, how would I be able to add a key signature? Hope more updates of this plugin will be release sooner. Thanks! smile
