Moodle, meet Facebook.

Hi All
How would you like your Moodle 1.9 coursepage to be more like Facebook? Well it can now become a reality!
My vision is for Moodle to have better usability features and factors that will encourage student and teacher engagement around the globe. Enter the Moodle wall based on Srinivas Tamada's Facebook Wall Script 3.0 (FBWS3.0). I've spent hours working on this one. Hope you like it as I think it's a Moodle first of sorts.
I've adapted Srinivas' FBWS3.0 code so that you can have a single separate wall for each coursepage, and within each coursepage, a separate wall for each and every resource (label, webpage, book, etc.).
Here's my latest work for Moodle 1.9. Now your Moodle site can have multiple walls. One for each resource (label, webpage, book, etc.).

Like what you see? Here's another view:

Live demo site
Username: studentscm
Password: studentscm

Try entering text with http:// links. Youtube and video urls with the http:// prefix will embed a video window within the wall.

I'm in a dilemma. Should I give the code away for free, and benefit, what, thousands of educators and students to advance education in institutions that use Moodle 1.9? Or resell the code at a profit, with permission from the original author who gets a cut of the profits, or just charge for installation work for educators and teachers who are just too busy to set it up on their Moodle sites? Maybe you can suggest something here. Login as studentscm and use the password studentscm.

If you would like to have the Wonderwall installed on your Moodle 1.9.x site, just send me an E-mail. If you're a for-profit big corporation, I'll charge by the hour. If you're a K-12 school or an institution that's really cash strapped, I might just send it to you for free - and install it for free too. Just contact me:
