    Hi everyone.
    I made a question using a picture that is a bit large and depending on the browser, it does not display correctly. Any tips?

    Hi. I have a situation where I am not drag-and-dropping a word, but I am drag-and-dropping a whole paragraph. The effect of this is the text box holder for the answer, and the text box containing the answer options are one long text box that extends beyond the left end of the monitor. A picture is worth a thousand words. So see: http://goo.gl/PBLLOM Any cure for this?

    The question type is not designed for that sort of question. Sorry.

    HI,

    Please, tell if the drag&drop plugins types support mass data input code like the standard Moodle quiz plugins do? It would open up quite new possibilities if they did!
    Thanks.

    Hi Edner,

    You might want to go ahead and update to the latest version of Moodle before installing the question type plug in. Then if you select the version of the plug in for your major version of Moodle ie. 2.5 in your case the plug in will install no problem. The plug in will probably install with older versions of Moodle.

    Hi Balázs!

    I think you are referring to question import formats that allow you to quickly author some question types using simple codes. The closest you can get for this for this question type is Moodle XML import, you could try exporting an example question and looking at the code that produces and then copy that.

    Thank you very much for your answer. Yes, this is exactly what I wanted to ask about. Should have thought about it myself: if the system can export in a format then it can also read in data written in the same format..

    I'm just curious if there is a timeline to upgrade the drag and drop question types to Moodle 2.6?

    When I get time. I don't think it is a big job. In fact, I think if you take the latest version from the master branch on github, then it will work. However, I need the time to prove that before I upgrade this plugins database entry.

    I have just tested, and the 2.5 version was working fine in Moodle 2.6. I have just updated the plugins DB entry to say that.
  • Just wondering . . .

    Just in case no-one ever says this Tim: *much appreciated* !!

    I did test things last year and they seemed OK. No I am back from a sort of a holiday and ready for an upgrade to 2.6. At least I'm nearly ready.
