Moodle 2.7.1 Assignment Feedback Errors (Error 500)

>Over the past few weeks, we’ve been having quite a few problems with our assignment mod on our 2.7.1 Moodle install. The problem specifically relates to feedback given to students whereby upon attempting to get to the page where feedback is uploaded, that page will just wait, and wait and wait and….you get the idea. […]






How to Update Your Moodle to 2.7

>This morning, I managed to successfully update my Moodle 2.5.3 to the latest version of Moodle, version 2.7+. Just for the record, the update history that I’ve followed to get me to this point is 1.9 > 2.2 > 2.3 > 2.5 > 2.7. I had to upgrade both my PHP and MySQL installations to […]






Moodle 2.6 vs 2.7 (Part 2)

> Last week, I was torturing myself with the dilemma of moving our Moodle infrastructure to either version 2.6 or version 2.7. After having all weekend to think about things from a future-proofing perspective, I’ve decided that realistically the only way in which we can carry forward is with version 2.7. Much of the groundwork […]






Moodle 2.6 or Moodle 2.7?

>Ok, it’s been a long time since my last post here but I would like to share my thoughts throughout this year on our current version of Moodle, version 2.5. Version 2.5 has for us, been very stable. Don’t get me wrong in any way, shape or form, read through my previous posts and you’ll […]






Moodle – Word, PowerPoint, Excel (Office 2010, 2013) Login Page Shown on File Download Windows 8

>Yesterday, I spent most of my afternoon looking through the Moodle code to try to work out why whenever a file was downloaded in Moodle, the Moodle login page was shown within the document when changing from protected view. The behaviour is consistent across Windows 8 and Office 2010 and 2013 suites from what I […]






Moodle 2.5, IE11 JSON, TinyMCE, Upload Errors – Solved

>Now that I’ve made the plunge and updated to Windows 8.1, I’ve had no choice but to use IE11. Initially, everything appeared to be fine, until I started to upload documents and mess about with the files. Compatibility mode didn’t manage to fix anything and I’ve always hated using that as a solution to a […]






Reasons Not To Upgrade To Moodle 2.6

>Over the past couple of years, Moodle has been on a path to a rapid release cycle for their software releases which in many ways is on the scale of being both good and bad. The general pros of this approach, besides the the newer features and a host of minor impovements, is that everything […]






Moodle 2.5 – 3 Months On

>Three months into our upgrade from Moodle 2.3.1 to 2.5 and everything in all honesty has been excellent. As I’ve previously mentioned in my blog that I always thought that 2.3 codebase was very immature and there were lots of bugs that had yet to be resolved. Thankfully, I can say now that *most* of […]






Moodle 2.5 onwards: Too many users to show (x) – Updated Fix

>Those familiar with Moodle and managing users within Moodle will be aware that for some time now that the users are quite difficult to manage, especially if you’ve got several thousand of them. The task is already somewhat difficult, however to add to the frustration when you’re looking directly for users or adding users to […]






Moodle 2.5 Upgrade from 2.3

On Saturday, I had the unfortunate task of performing our Moodle upgrade from 2.3.1 to the latest version of Moodle which is currently 2.5.x. Just for the record, I always write .x on the end of the revision just so if there is a vulnerability in that version then I’m not telling the world what […]
