I have admin rights on the moodle course i work on. I recently trained staff here on 'what is new in Moodle 1.5' and was blabbing on about how great these rss feeds are. The staff loved them and left the session wondering what feeds they might use. Because i have admin rights on the site, when go to set up an rss feed, i see a screen that has a ' Configure this block ' and ' Manage All My Feeds', the teacher see this also. Where my problem is is that when a teacher ie. only teacher editing rights, tries to 'manage a feed' and add one he/she gets an error message saying 'sorry, guests are not allowed to post. You are not allowed to manage feeds at this time'.
Have i installed the rss block featuring incorrectly?
Can people with teacher editing rights manage feeds, if so, how do i as admin enable this feature.
I would really appreciate your opinion on this.
You can change this setting in admin -> blocks -> RSS: you can choose for admins or teachers and admins. Is default on admins only
Thanks for that.
I've made the change but still get the same 'Guests cannot make these changes' or words to that effect even though the person is logged in as a teacher.
Possibility we might be caching somewhere but I don't know where or why.
We've put a few bits and bobs together re: Rss feeds.
Feel free to steal!
Can your teachers add their own news feeds or only select from the list that the administrator has already added? Do they get a message about Guests not being allowed to do that?
Not sure about the message I'd need to check.
I think I would rather have the patch as I don't particuarly want to upgrade production systems mid term - I might be shot if it all went wrong! That and I have about 16 of them!
It was in the testing of a tutorial (we have a trial copy of Captivate that we were trying out - I have to say I like it even if it isn't open source!) that we discovered that the teacher can't do it, only an administrator.
Many thanks it is always good to see how others do things.
My Moodle is 1.5.2 (2005060220) - does anyone know if it works on that one?
