Add to appropriate places checks if a quiz has consecutive page breaks (attempt.php etc.) or page breaks at the beginning of quiz and clean them up before use.
I remember discussing this before with you but am not still sure how to solve it. I would appreaciate the regexp you used to find the places that need to be changed.
I added a parameter $removeemptypages to function quiz_clean_layout($layout,$removeemptypages=false).
This is now being called from quiz_create_attempt() ($attempt->layout = quiz_clean_layout($quiz->questions,true), but I am not sure where else it should be checked. Tim, my search of $quiz->questions returns over 200 hits - what was your grep like when you checked for possible places that needed a change?
- also related: if $questions is empty when $quiz->questions is not, should not produce a fatal error like it does now, since the situation where a quiz has only empty pages is entirely possible
- I am unsure about the tests in the quiz question listing for edit.php which test for both $questions and $quiz->questions before showing the exam. I removed the test for $questions, but I am not sure of the implications - why did you do this in the first place?
**Tim Hunt> I think you might be better leaving this until after you have merged to moodle 2.0 / I have completely changed the code that is run when a quiz attempt is started in MOodle 2.0 / And I think in HEAD there is one sensible place to remove duplicate page breaks. / Look at http://cvs.moodle.org/moodle/mod/quiz/startattempt.php?view=markup / You can either put the check there, or in the quiz_create_attempt method.
**Olli Savolainen> but I understood that when you grepped moodle's code, there were other places where this has to be done, too?
**Tim Hunt> Ah, maybe in the quiz reports. I don't remember the details now.
