    MRBS Producing extra Periods

    I have MRBS up and running and have managed to get it to switch over to periods (is there a document anywhere that lists all the config.inc.php commands for it? I have mostly got them from threads here on edugeek) but am having an issue where it is producing two extra time blocks named Period 1 and Period 2 before the ones I enter manually. Any idea why that is? my config.inc.php is below.

    so it says

    Period 1
    Period 2
    Before School
    Period 1
    Period 2
    Recess
    Period 3
    Period 4
    Lunch
    Period 5
    After School

    when it should say

    Before School
    Period 1
    Period 2
    Recess
    Period 3
    Period 4
    Lunch
    Period 5
    After School

    Code:

    I know that this is an old post, but I was curious to know if you were able to resolve the issue. I am experiencing the same issue.

    Thanks

    Sorry, just found the answer so I am posting it for anyone who encounters this issue. This system will not let me post the link to where I found the answer so I will just post what it said in brief.

    Enter the line,

    unset($periods);

    right before you define your periods and it will clear out the array and use what you have.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,

    I don't actually work in the position anymore as I am off traveling and working in europe, but I would just like to thank you for updating the thread when you found the resolution (I received an email when the thread was updated ).

    I will pass the solution on to the fellow who replaced me however. If I remember correctly I just utilised a work around by putting before school at the end of the list.

    Cheers
    Rhys

    Hi Rhys,

    Glad to be able to help.

    I was setting this up for my wife who is a librarian here in the states. I'm a developer and have been thinking about re-working the MRBS code base to make it a bit nicer...when I can find the time.

    Enjoy your world travels and best of luck to you!
    John
