  • Hi Ernest, so, it should not be a PHP version issue, but it sounds like a PHP error is definitely occuring. If your host will give you access to the PHP error logs, this ought to tell you something about what is going on. Share the relevant log entr…
  • Hi Andy, This module is maintained by @andystat, who may be interested in adding this feature, or who may be able to work with you to allow you to add the feature. Good luck! Ross
  • Hi pethkaqeni, you are most welcome : ) I am excited to hear that Gibbon is being used in Albania, I country I've not visited, but would love to one day. I've added the Lek to the Gibbon v18 development branch. You can take the changes shown in the…
  • Hi Ghulam, this feature allows you to preset a list of districts within your country, which should be offered to users as an auto suggest, to complement the text field. Thanks, Ross.

  • Dear Ghulam, Please take a look at the CLI script /cli/planner_parentWeeklyEmailSummary.php. This covers Planner, Behaviour and Markbook, but not not attendance. I run crontab -e on my Ubuntu Linux servers, and this lets me schedule when to run th…

  • Hi Ibraheem, I've never gotten to the bottom of it, but notifications on this forum are not 100% consistent. I'll try and take a look in the coming week. In the meantime, I've just seen and replied to your email. Welcome to the team! Ross.
  • Hi Mike, "Your request failed because you do not have access to this action." generally indicates that you've used the back button at some point, which invalidates the installer, in order to try and avoid more serious errors. If this is the case, t…
  • Hi diptiranjan, the MySQL username and password to use here will be set during the XAMPP install. The username is most likely root, and from what I've read online the password is set to blank, which Gibbon does not allow. I suggest you look at how …
  • Hi Ernest, I test-drove Jame's hosting service, but never really put any load on the server. It was a long time ago, and it looked promising, but I can't offer any guarantees.
  • Hi Roman, you are right, this would be a lovely feature, and actually not too hard to implement, as the Read Receipt part of Messenger already uses a short code with string replacement. However, at the moment we are flat out working on v18, and don'…
  • Hi Roman, Well spotted, as there has been a change in this regard. The current behaviour is that records are removed, only if it is the same person taking the attendance multiple times in a row. The aim here was to avoid overloading the Student His…
  • Hi Andy, At the moment there is no way to do this directly in Gibbon. You could amend the code to do this, but your changes would be lost, and have to be recreated, when you update Gibbon to the newest version. @sandra does have a very cool module…
  • Hi Andy, you are in good company here: we've all been a little numpty at one time or another! Ross.
  • Hi Ghulam, If you access the same version you are using from our GitHub repo, then you can download it, unzip it, and upload the /vendor file to your server. Thanks, Ross

  • Hi Ibraheem, Sandra's v17 work on changing from a single SMS gateway to having a set of options, might be a good model for you to take a look at. Good luck, and thanks for your willingness to get involved with Gibbon! Ross.
  • Hi Andy, Good progress! These buttons using JavaScript and AJAX, and so I guess it might be a client side issue. I'm not sure we've tested much on Opera. Can you try in Firefox or Chrome and see if that makes any difference? If it is not working in…
  • Hi Toby, You are most welcome. Often a blank PHP page is a sign that there is an error. Can you check your PHP error logs to see what is going on? Thanks, Ross
  • Hi Toby, Gibbon uses gettext() to perform translated string replacements, but in some Apache/PHP installs it is not enabled by default. The best bet is to do some online research to look at how to install GetText on your platform. The gettext func…
  • Hi Andy, You are right, Gibbon uses absolute paths (but not because it is for internal use). If you switch to HTTPS, or switch the URL, you need to update the absoluteURL (and sometimes absolutePath) settings with the System scope in the gibbonSett…
  • Hi Mackay, From memory, I don't believe those strings were ever wrapped up for translation. Can you try and surrounded the string in the __() function (double underscore) and see if that does the trick? We set up the Gibbon Core to be able to hand…
  • Hi Graham, you sound like you are doing everything right. One thing to check would be the file permissions: using ls -l can you see whether or not the world/other user category has view permissions on the pdo folder and its contents? Do you have PHP…
  • Hi Brian, Thanks for your kind words : ) If you go to Admin > Timetable Admin > Manage Timetable, and add a timetable, you will, after several intermediate steps, get to the point where you assign classes to rows (periods/lessons/sessions) …
  • Hi dgago, at ICHK we use Meet The Teacher, which is an external service. There is a Gibbon module that passes MTT the relevant data, and offers parents single sign-on. Email their support team and mention Gibbon, and they can help you get started. I…
  • Hi Ogol, that is very odd, as your role is Member, and this role does have access to create attachments: Can you email a screenshot of the error you are seeing to support@gibbonedu.org? Thanks! Ross
  • Hi Monica, good question! For a universities I've helped in the past we've variously used Year Groups and Roll/Form Groups called "All" to hold all students, and then basically ignored those groupings going forward. You could do Year Group as all, a…
  • Hi ogol, let's see what @andystat, the author of the Reporting module (which is an additional module in Gibbon, and so not included in the core) might be able to offer. Andy, is this something your Reporting module can do, either the open source ve…
  • Hi Monica, Documentation has never been our strongest point, but it is something we are keen to keep developing. The closest we have started to an overview of system concepts and terminology is our Getting Started guide: https://docs.gibbonedu.org…
  • @steuxnet, a fair alternative, but it will still be overwritten when updating Gibbon. You could always spin up a new theme, although this requires some maintenance too. Changes in the pipeline for v18/19 should overcome this issue, as themes will in…
  • In which case, try the following Google query, and you should find the relevant information: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=xampp+default+mysql+username+and+password Let us know how you get on.
  • Hi KPS, It depends on what server stack you are using. On Linux, for example, you are generally invited to set a password, whereas MAMP on macOS uses "root" as the default password (as it is only designed for local testing). What are you using? Ross.
