I assume you are talking about the"left menu" that can be turned on in the Lesson settings. You know that every Theme will/can display this block different via its theme/mytheme/style/***.css files or its parents found in theme/mytheme/config.php.
I am not the code person and know just enough about CSS to be VERY dangerious. (ie, it takes me a long time to do anything custom).
I did look at mod/lesson/ renderer.php which is new in 2.0 as a standard file. There is a bit there that says "Returns HTML to display a page to the user". You are welcome to back track the php code from there
I did note in the page source code that the body had an id <body id="page-mod-lesson-view" ....>, so my CSS guess is you could write a subclass in your theme for just your lesson pages associated with that id.
It would seem to me by creating a CSS subclass in a custom theme (see Themes FAQ for some clues), you 1) would only impact the lesson module display, and 2) you will not have to mess with the /mod/lesson code. Custom themes survive Moodle upgrades than having a list of display codes you placed in the core moodle code, IMO.
Hope this helps and someone who knows more about CSS and php can enlighten us further.
I've attached a screenshot to try to make it a bit clearer. Both the elements are within page-view-lesson and within that they're both in the same div so unfortunately that doesn't help.
I want the lesson title (red circle) to be formatted differently to the page title (blue circle) but as they're both h2 class=main there doesn't seem an obvious way to do this.
I can't find a pagetype for "content" and searching the files for h2 or class=main hasn't thrown anything up.
If anyone can advise where this page content gets built it'd be much appreciated.
These headings will be output by calls to $OUTPUT->heading() (or possibly $renderer->heading()) in the lesson code. I guess one needs to be changed to h3, or we need to add some more class names to one.
In the Lesson activity, page titles are only displayed for pages of the "content page" type. Page titles of the "question" pages (multiple choice, etc.) are not displayed.
Anyway, a quick and dirty solution is as follows, if you are willing to hack your moodle core files.
Edit mod/lesson/pagetypes/branchtable.php file, line 113 to replace
$output .= $renderer->heading(format_string($this->properties->title));
$output .= '<h3>'.format_string($this->properties->title).'</h3>';
Even better to replace it with $output .= $renderer->heading(format_string($this->properties->title), 3);
Perfect - thanks Tim
Is there a way to display page titles for question pages? IT would be great if it could be inserted into the empty legend tag that is already rendered.
(FYI: using Moodle branch 2.3.2)
Glad you did the screen shot. Tim and Joseph know the code.
No place to slip in some CSS code tweaks, unless you want the entire site changed. Chris
