Moodle Hack/Doc: Day 2

The second day of Moodle Hack/Doc Fest saw a great deal of work squashing bugs, refining a new gradebook view, and completing TinyMCE 3 integration into Moodle 1.9.9+LAEv1.1.

Development

  • Anonymous Forums: Done, tested, and in dev branch. It will be “baked in” to LAE v1.1, but will be turned off by default. A converter for the older version of Anonymous forums (which was available as a separate download) is included, but needs to be tested.

  • Wiki Forward Slash Characters bug: Fixed, tested and in the dev branch.

  • Forum Q&A: Fix created, included in dev branch.

  • LAE Gradebook View: The hackers dealt with various issues regarding CSS/JavaScript and Internet Explorer.
  • Questionnaire: Fix implemented and reported to our tracker and Moodle tracker.
    • http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB-2162
  • Gradebook tweaks: Two patches were rolled for the gradebook — one that hides the role-renaming option in course settings and one to re-name and hide grade items on the grade category page.

  • Moodle 1.9.9. Import Bug: We discovered an import bug in 1.9.9 that was subsequently fixed in the weekly build. It has been rolled into the Dev branch.
  • Tiny MCE3: It is working and has been rolled into the development branch. We also need to create a list of default button and evaluate TeX editors as a possible replacement for the somewhat buggy DragMath used in Moodle 1.9.5+LAEv1.0. We┬áneed to see how it upgrades from TinyMCE2 to TinyTMC3

  • Simple File Upload: There was a bug single file upload fix. It needs to be rolled in.

Documentation

The Doc’ers finished evaluating Moodle 1.9.9+LAE and didn’t find any additonal bugs. They also also made 38 scripts for creating how-to videos, which will be shared out using Google Docs.
They also helped with testing the various hacker fixes and features additions and cleaned up the Documentation issues in the Redmine Tracker.
