i changed "Default role for all users" from !Authenticated users" to "moodstudents" and now admin is locked. When admin logs on on left bar there is only USERS, FRONTPAGE. Most of the links are gone, somehow i managed to reset back with adminfix.php.
This is what i want:
We are a small college, therefore we have some students, lecturers and IT Administrator.
Our users (students) are pulled from windows active directory, so these students when logs on to the moodle for the first time, their users account will automatically be created in moodle systems. When their users accounts are created they automatically can do lots of things in moodle like creating blog, create new tags, access chat, add news, forums. We dont want these users to do these sort of things, so all we want them is to click on course and enroll and go thru the notes, syllabus. So what do i need to do to achieve these tasks.
This is how im doing now but its taking lots of time:
I have created a new role name "moodstudents"; this role is duplicate of moodles native student role. In this new role i have edited to prohibit things like creating blog, create new tags, access chat, add news, forums. And from the USERS->ASSIGN SYS ROLES->MOODSTUDENTS and added all those users pulled from active directory. BUT is there anyway this things can be done automatically or is there any better way of doing it.
Roles and permissions
automatically assign all users to particular role
