We've been experimenting with Moodle 2 locally, and I've noticed the URL
resource requires a comment. Why is that? I'm aware I can doubtlessly just go into the code and stop it doing so, but I'd like to know the reasoning before I do so, and ideally see this changed in core so I don't have to maintain extra patches for local
It seems odd to me; many (most?) of the links staff provide are self explanatory, require no more explanation than can be provided in the name, or are explained by use of labels on the page. Is this just us? There have been cases where staff have wanted comments on URLs, and I'm glad they're an option, but required seems odd.
On a related note, presumably to show the comment, getting in to a URL always requires clicking on it twice (once on the course page, once on the next page that comes up). Any chance of a "Just get on with it" option for when URLs are clicked?
Am I missing something obvious?
