Hi Fidel, one of the implicit aims of Gibbon is to reduce harm to students. In the opinion of our developers, we see rankings as one of the most harmful educational practices, both in terms of student well being and motivation. As such, there are no ranking systems built into Gibbon. I am sorry if this causes you issues in using Gibbon. Cheers, Ross.
Hi Ivan, you've been really inventive here...but hacking the core like this means that your changes will get overwritten next time you upgrade Gibbon. You could contribute your changes back to the project, but in this case there is a non-programming solution. If you head to Admin > System Admin > Custom Fields, you'll see that you can add such fields to different parts of the system, including Course and Class. Let us know how you get on with this! Ross
Sounds like you've had your hands full: glad to hear that you got it sorted.
The installer has been completely rebuilt in v23.0.00 (due out on January 20th 2022), although I've not seen the issue you describe before on Debian-derived Ubuntu.
Thanks for the heads up on vendor/tcpdf, which has gotten the update treatment in v23 too.
