This  is a really useful plugin Gregor, thanks for putting it together. Seems to be working fine in 1.4.x too.

Gregor Anželj - 02 June 2011, 2:17 PM

Haven't had the time to test it against 1.4.x. Thanks. It is a good news.

I just changed over to 1.4, and although the extensions page listed embedly and it installed with no errors, it isn't showing in my options to drag it into a new page.

To Malcolm: You need to edit one word in lib.php:

    public static function get_categories() {
        return array('external');                                 // <----- this was   return array('feeds');

HI Gregor:

I love this plugin and use it all the time. I have one little wish for it...

Would it be possible to enable users to add an optional description as they're publishing the block? This would help learners say why the content is important in the context of the particular page...important for assessment and Recognition of Prior Learning.

I see this as over-riding the "Add description" option and maybe it could work like the Introduction Text in the Profile Block.

How can I download the latest available versión for Mahara 1.3.6?

Thanks in advance


Gregor Anželj - 29 February 2012, 2:37 PM

I think the latest version should also work under Mahara 1.3.6. I haven't tested it though...
