Select Moodle version:

Activities: Stamp collection

mod_stampcoll
The Stamp collection module allows a teacher to give "stamps" (i.e. picture with a comment) to students so they collect these stamps. The activity can be used in many ways, such as motivative bonus marks, absence marks, certification records etc.
Maintained by: Picture of David Mudrák David Mudrák

The module uses capabilities to control who can collect stamps and give stamps. Therefore, student can be allowed to give stamps to other students, the stamps may be given to teachers etc. Teachers can setup the module to show all stamps to all students, to show stamps only to the individual student to whom it was awarded or to hide stamps completely.

    David, I'm in love with your plugin, but I need to things:
    1. To inser it into the forum (so every body can add stamps to classmates)
    2. That the number of stars appear with the name and picture, so every body can know how many pictures have this person.
    Thanks

    I am doing this manually using Google Forms to collect data, then entering it into my student grade sheets. Would love to have it all streamlined like this, with pictures and comments too. Any idea when 2.2 version will be ready? Can I help in any way?

    Hi David,

    There's a serious problem with the Manage Stamps page in IE 8. Your code is breaking the layout of the page, especially in the header area, but also effecting the sidebars. I've tested with multiple themes (all unedited, straight-out-of-the-box) and all have an issue here.

    I've been doing some testing to try and fix it and it appears to be a HTML issue, rather than a CSS issue. Maybe there's an un-closed element somewhere?

    The issue doesn't appear in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

    I can send you screenshots if that helps.

    We have many schools who really like your module, but they're also stuck using IE 8 (I know, I know, a hateful browser, but it's beyond my control to get rid of it). If the layout issue can't be fixed they won't be able to use your module.

    Hope you can fix this.

    Kind regards,

    Barry

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the fast response. I did some more digging and realised the issue isn't with David's original plugin – I installed a copy of that and it displays the 'Manage Stamps' page fine in IE 8. The problem is in Frankie's modified multi-stamp version which I got from

    http://www.moodlenews.com/2012/motivating-students-through-badges-with-the-stamp-collection-module-moodle-2-2-x/

    I'll email you both with as much information as I can gather.

    Kind regards,

    Barry

    Actually guys, no need to email. I've found the problem in Frankie's code. It's the first few lines of managestamps.php, in particular this code:

    [style type="text/css"]
    .expandedNode div{
    display: block;
    margin-left:3px;
    }
    .collapsedNode div{
    display:none;
    }
    [/style]

    Because this is outside the php and before the HTML element gets rendered it just gets dumped into the output before the HTML element, and this causes IE to freak out. Remove it and the page displays correctly.

    I guess you have three options:

    1) Use php to add it to the output in the correct position in the header
    2) Move it to styles.css
    3) Ditch it, and just display the stamp guide all the time

    I'm going to go with number 3.

    I spent hours yesterday trying to figure this out, this morning solved in an hour. It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for you.

    Kind regards,

    Barry

    NB Had to replace < and > with [ and ] to get the CSS code to display
