Question formats: Gift with medias format

Maintained by Picture of Jean-Michel Védrine Jean-Michel Védrine
Question import format similar to Gift and uses the same syntax, but instead of a text file it imports a zip file containing the gift text file and media files (images, sounds, ...);

Gift with media is similar to Gift and uses the same syntax, but instead of a text file it imports a zip file containing the gift text file and media files (images, sounds, ;..) in folders.
Images and medias included in questions are imported at the same time (see documentation to learn how to refer to media files in your questions)

    By the way does this plugin work for Moodle 2.3.x? Thanks!

    If you look at the "Download versions" page, you will see that there is a version for Moodle 2.3.x and as specified it only works with Moodle 2.3.4 and ulteriors.
    This is because this plugin is dependant of a change that I introduced in Moodle 2.3.4
    So it will not work with Moodle 2.3.1, 2.3.2 or 2.3.3, and in fact if you try to install it into one of these Moodle versions you will get an error message during installation.

    I love your gift media upload feature and used it heavily. I would like to upgrade to Moodle 2.6. Does this still work? Thanks for your work and help. Regards.

    Hello Madhu,
    Thanks a lot for your appreciation and use of this plugin. Yes it works with no problem with Moodle 2.6 and there is no need to upgrade it, the same version works.

    Hello Jean,
    Thanks for your reply. I installed moodle 2.6+ build 20131220 and also installed the gift media in the appropriate folder. It does not work. It does not work even in the degenarte case of pure GIFT with no media. My test file works fine with GIFT MEDIA on moodle Moodle 2.5.3 (Build: 20131111). Can you kindly verify? If you need a test file that I am using I will be happy to send you mine.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Madhu,
    Thanks for the report, it appears I have forgotten to upload the version for Moodle 2.6 and 2.6 to the plugin directory so in fact when you download it you get the version for Moodle 2.4 and it gives the errors you reported. I will correct the problem but if you are in a hurry, you can download the correct version from my github account You need to download the master branch version, click on the "Download ZIP" button on the right of the page.
    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks again for reporting the problem.
