    Just fixed a problem between Moodle and Googe Web Toolkit for languages to include country specific languages like es_CL, us_GB or pt_BR. Moodle treats these in lower cases, and GWT requires it with the country in uppercase, a little hack in the code did the trick in version 1.3.2.

    I would love to use this question type, but when my students submit a quiz containing this question, they get this error: An error occurred while processing your responses (Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Invalid database query parameter value). Click continue to return to the page you were on and try again.

    More information about this error
    Debug info: Objects are are not allowed: question_file_loader
    Error code: errorprocessingresponses
    Stack trace:

    line 476 of /lib/setuplib.php: moodle_exception thrown
    line 188 of /mod/quiz/processattempt.php: call to print_error()

    I'm using Moodle 2.5. Am I missing something I need?

    Hi Jürg and Kim,
    I just released a new updated version of the plugin, following all the patterns for Moodle 2.7+. I also tested it on Moodle 2.5 with no errors we could find. Please try the new version and let me know if everything is going well.

    Cheers,
    Jorge

    Will this plugin be upgraded to Moodle 3.2.1 etc ? It looks very interesting especially as the trend in teaching mathematics is to make students think of "consepts" and relations between elements of learning. Making consepts trees of geometry, algebra, trigonometry etc would be usefull exercises. I hope to see a new version of this plugin soon. smile

    Hi all, we are currently in QA for the 3.0+ version. Problem was that we got greedy and started adding new features. Stay tuned.

    We have been using this question type in 3.1 for the last two years and really like it. We are about to about upgrade to 3.5 and hope that a new version will be available. Would be a shame to lose this!
