SHA1: 6d43851950e7e7d029d2320f5641d9cb85c9ff16
MD5: d0575b4ba1ba6125dc8a5ed1e957b713

This patch fixes the exam mode in Moodle 2.3.x used with Safe Exam Browser: The navigation links to other parts of the LMS are not displayed during an exam. The fix will be included in Moodle 2.4, below you can find short instructions (for Moodle administrators) how to apply the fix on Moodle 2.3 versions:

  • Unpack the zip file.
  • The additional patch code passages are starting with // Voma add start and ending with // Voma add end, they are situated almost at the end of the files.
  • Since the attempt.php and summary.php files can slightly differ in varying Moodle 2.3.x versions, you should copy only the code between // Voma add start/end to the right spot into the two according files of a Moodle 2.3.x installation.
