    Please turn on Debugging. Then you will get an error message rather than a blank screen.

    Thanks Tim. Turned on debugging and found out that I was missing ouwiki and questionnaire. After installing these editdates works like a dream. A plugin that many of us needed very badly. Thanks a million.

    I am finding that the dates report does not show cut-off dates for assignments in Moodle 2.4.5. I have the 2012080700 version of the report plugin. I can edit the opening time for assignment submissions and the due date, but there is no interface to edit the cut-off date. When I do use the dates report to change the opening time or due date, the cut-off date remains unchanged, and can be earlier than the opening time.

    I just uploaded a new version of the plugin that should fix the problem you are seeing.

    Hi, we updated the plug-in today (moodle 2.4.5+), same error: blank screen, we have questionnaire installed, but no ouwiki. is it really necessary to have ouwiki one installed?

    It should not be necessary to have ouwiki installed.

    A blank screen tells us nothing. Please turn on Debugging.

    Ah, so the latest version only works on Moodle 2.5. Sorry.

    Hi, our 2.4.5+ installation prompted us to download and install this update, but it no longer works. With debugging turned up to full 'developer' mode, I still only get 'Server Error' in Chrome - no moodle call trace at all. Is it possible to ensure the 2.5 related changes only prompt 2.5 installations to upgrade?

    @Michael, read the three comments immediately above yours. (This was found and fixed yesterday. I'm sorry I screwed up. You need to go back to the previous version.)

    We love the report. Are there plans to be able to "VIEW ALL" using the activity type drop down menu so that instructors can see their entire semester of activities? We have had several requests for this feature. Thanks.

    For very large courses, the disabledIf conditions between the settings get very, very slow for large courses, so there is a limit. If you like experiment with editing REPORT_EDITDATES_ENABLE_FILTER_THRESHOLD at the top of index.php. You may find a bitter setting is safe. (If so, we might increase this setting for everyone.)

    Thanks to prompting from Charles Fulton and Kevin Wiliarty, I have uploaded a version of the v2.1 release that should be compatible with Moodle 2.2 - 2.4. That goes with the 2.5-compabilt version that was already there.
