      Description

      While developing an RSS feed for recent activity we altered the way the modules were getting and displaying their recent activity.

      The change was splitting up the $modname._print_recent_activity(..) function into a $modname._get_recent_activity(..) and $modname._print_recent_activity(..) so that the RSS feed could use the modules get function and the existing print functions could still be called from within course/lib.php for displaying the recent activity block.

      We would like to suggest this as a possible API change for Modules in 2.0.

      Attached is a patch for the suggested API change using the Forum Module, it is a follow up of the original Tracker issue #MDL-17045 and supplied patch.

      Thanks,
      Stacey Walker

            Reassigning this to moodle.com for the time being, since Mark Nielsen is not maintaining Lesson any more. Please comment/vote/patch any crucial bugs that affect you for 2.0 to help us prioritise fixes for the upcoming release.

            Wondering what the status of this is currently - had come to the same conclusion as it looks like I'm going to be writing an improved "Recent Activity" block.

            I see that the *_get_recent_mod_activity functions seem to at least be in the process of appearing. They're present for assignment, feedback, forum, quiz, workshop in Moodle 2.1 & 2.2, but this leaves chat, glossary, survey & wiki (& lti in 2.2), and a google search for any more information on whether this is/will be a reliable way to get the required information finds next to nothing.

            Removing the patch label, since the patch is ancient.
