Hi All

I'm using Mahara 1.4 on my server. I try to install CPD plugin from

I followed the instruction, to copy /cpds folder into /artefact folder. When I go to Site Admin --> Plugin Administation, I got an error message like this :

cpds/cpds Not installable! This will be installed as part of the installation of artefact plugin cpds

Anyone knows how to fix it?

Hi Pungki

The installation is a two-stage process. If you visit the Plugin Administration page, you should see a cpds installation link (bottom left as I recollect). Once this is installed (you may have to refresh the page) you should then be able to complete things by selecting  the cpds/cpds link.

NB This is from memory, so the detail may not be exact, but you should see two cpds-related install links that you have to select, in order,

Hope this helps


Note that the latest CPD plugin code is now at

So, if you continue to have issues, perhaps try this version. Download, unpack, rename the top-level directory as cpds and copy into your Mahara's  /artefact folder.

Hi Geoff,

Thanks for your hint. I was careless yesterday. It was true. There is an install link for cpds. The link was under "Plugin type : artefact" columns. Yesterday I just focus to the error message. When I tried to search keyword "cpds" from the browser via Ctrl-F, I found the link.

Now the CPD plugin is installed. We will try it to use. Thanks Geoff.

Anyway, the address of the latest code that you gave me, is asking a username and password. So I can't enter the link.

Hi Pungki,

I've just fixed the link in Geoff's message, it should work fine now. But here it is again, just in case:

(click "Download master as tar.gz" in the right sidebar)
