Help! I'm confused!
I am using Moodle 1.9 and I want staff to be able to view hidden resources in a course, but not to have any editing rights. I also don't want them to have any rights in the news forum.
I have created a new role with Teacher (non-editing) as the Legacy Role and taken away certain forum permissions on it. I saved it as 'Staff'.
I then assigned the users to this 'Staff' role on the required course. They are not assigned to the Teacher (non-editing) or any other role on the course.
Now when they log in they cannot see the course on their list of 'my courses'.
Is this how it's meant to work? Should they be assigned to the Legacy role as well as the new one? Or have I misunderstood the roles system?
Any help would be appreciated.
You may want to check if you have the moodle/course:view set to allow.
