New Plugins


Special considerations for plugins

To be removed in 2022

We are considering EOLing Open Forums (mod_hsuforum), as current core forums offer very similar functionality. This is being reviewed and scoped, since a migration tool will be developed for our customers.

From the 3.11 MP5 release no new clients will have the Open Forums (mod_hsuforum) plugin available by default.

We will also be in the process of removing Legacy Log (legacy_log) during this year.

This also applies to the plugin Progress Bar (block_progress). The creators of this plugin suggest the use of the Completion Progress block instead because it is faster and more efficient, easier to use, and more compatible with additional plugins. In Open LMS EDU we already have Completion Progress block, so we suggest you switch to it before the EOL of Progress Bar.
