Correct me if I am wrong.
I go into any course. I make a Glossary. In the settings for the Glossary, I check the box "Is this glossary global?" (YES). Glossary Type is set to Main glossary. I press save a return to course.
Now, I go into the main front page of my moodle site. There, it displayes a list of all my Courses and Course Categories. I click on the right tool bar "Blocks", Add Random Glossary Entry. I then press Configure for the Random Glossary Entry. For the "Take entries from this glossary:", I should be able to see my Glossary I originally made in my other course. But I only see "choose..."
I read on this forum some problems similar to this. Some of the solutions were to either install a patch, or make a glossary on the front page.
I dont understand how I could creat a glossary module on the front page. It doesnt have that ability. Does anyone have a clear cut way to make this work? Technically what I have done should have let me choose a Glossary, but it doesnt. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
