          I should add I'm using the latest version downloaded from the plugin page - version.php says 2011110106

          Hi Chris,

          Where did you download the certificate plugin from? Version 2011110106 is not the latest version. Please download the zip package from https://github.com/PukunuiAustralia/moodle-mod_certificate

          Regards,

          Mark

          It's the version you get from the plugins database : http://moodle.org/plugins/pluginversion.php?id=188&action=download

          Hi Chris, that is very strange as the version you stated is in your version.php file you received is an older version than the last few updates. Can you please re-download and try again?

          Hi Mark,

          I've just downloaded from the plugins DB again - it's definitely the older version.

          I can confirm that the version from your git link fixes the this bug.

          Thanks,
          Chris
