Testing and QA
You may be right but the "Turn editing on/off" button, IMHO, should be everywhere or nowhere. Here but not there is not a good policy.
the button has been replaced with the link in the Settings block as Tim noticed above. The fact that the button still appears at some pages is actually a bug, caused by legacy code.
i agree with removing it on the main page, but keeping it in the courses, at least for now.. teachers have a lot to cope with, with all the new changes, taking away that edit button just adds to their troubles..
Hi, I'm new to the forums, but have used Moodle for about a year now.
I suggest, make it a 2 choice checkbox option:
- Button on Front Page
- Button on Course menus
[default is both checked]
I mean, this isn't Clippy from Microsoft, which everyone hated (well some hated). This is a very well liked feature.
I know this is an older thread, but I still can't figure out why the decision was made to remove the edit mode button and ask users to scroll down and go to Settings to turn it on or off. From an ergonomic standpoint, having a previously fixed function constantly move up and down the screen (as the navigation block displays a variable number of items in its menus) is counter-productive. Even more so when editing content pages.
Is there a way to modify a standard 2.x theme to include the button?
I very much agree - When looking at the code in Firebug, I notice that the navbutton div is still there, but greyed out. Is there any override renderers I can use to turn this back on?! Or something I can add to a layout php file? Like general.php?! I want that button on all the course pages, not just that first page.
What theme are you using? What pages do you not see the button on?
I have the turn editing on button on my theme in my course pages
I have it on the main course page, but not any of the subsequent pages that you go into - books for example. I want it in the navbar wherever you are - going into the settings menu is not intuitive, especially when you have the button on the main course page.
