I would like to use the new to 2.0 Comments block e.g. on a Quiz's Review (i.e. Final) Page, for students to write their comments about the quiz they have taken. But I would like those comments to be only displayed to a) the student and b) the teacher, i.e. not visible by the other students.
In that Comments block settings, it would be nice if a new feature (a capability) were added to allow this feature to be switched ON or OFF. Something like "View own comments only / View all comments".
If you are interested, please vote for MDL-25580.
PS.- By the way, when creating a new block, is it possible to add a list of capabilities? It seems that the only capabilities available to blocks by default are Edit block and View block.
Though I haven't seen that "in action", we can also benefit from a feature like that, as long as the lecturer get to see all the comments on a specific question at the same time.
I am not sure 'all the comments at the same time' necessarily works. There might be a lot - and I am not sure if the comments system can cope with that if you also want to be able to have separate comments for each student.
For the teacher, you probably need a list of student names, with the number of comments, or something like that, then you can click on any of those to see the acutal comments. Well, that would be my first guess at a UI design.
I would just like to know where the Comment block settings are. I'm in 2.2, and the icon to edit only lets me choose where on the page I want it. and Display on page types.
On My Moodle, the comments block only shows MY comments.
On the Plugins Overview, comments can only be on or off. And the Comments block there shows my comments and another admin person, which is different from elsewhere.
The comments made by sts are not visible to me as admin.
In the process of writing this, I've just added a new Comment block on my (admin's) Site news page. Previous comments are not visible. And when I return to My Home, the comment I just added in the new Comment block do not appear.
Could the owners of this Comment block describe it on their page?
