Course presentation content displayed as [field:group:coursepresentation:presentation]

I upgraded h5p content to the latest version last night.

Some content types now dispay as - [field:group:coursepresentation:presentation] and are not editable.

I looked in h5p ibraries and found some had not updated.  Updating caused this error.


I have since updated all h5p installed h5p content types from the editor which allowed me to update the content libraries completely.

However still Course Presentation displays as below



Just to add, the error occured before I did the moodle and h5p updates.

Hi geckonet,

Can you try downloading and uplaoding this test content. If this doesn't work please check the following:

  1. Any browser console errors
  2. Any PHP errors



After saving I got this error page.

Exception - Call to a member function get_content() on bool

I now get a continuous "Now loading" message but it never completes.

We are having exactly the same problem as geckonet. One one the admins updated the Course Presentation, it seemed to fail during that process however we have not been able to recover from that or determine how to fix this component. 
We have downloaded the test course presentation and uploaded to a test course. The mesage was: Course Presentation was successfully uploaded! however there are still portions of this page not loading:

  • [field:group:coursepresentation:presentation]
  • [field:boolean:disposableBoolean:activeSurface]
  • [field:boolean:showWhen:summarySlideSolutionButton]
  • [field:boolean:showWhen:summarySlideRetryButton]
  • [field:group:showWhen:social]

Screenshot included.
