A quick check of the existing threads on this tells me I'm not the only one confused by the new way of making blocks "sticky" (in the 1.9 parlance). However, I seem to have a different issue to others.
We are in the preparation stages of moving from 1.9 to 2.2 and my colleagues and I have been tasked with setting the configuration. We want to keep our settings as similar as possible to our current 1.9 instance to minimise confusion and, therefore, training required. We currently have a number of sticky blocks on course pages (e.g. Calendar, Activities, Administration, People) and I can find no way of replicating this setup without adding these blocks to a level above the main course page. It seems to do this I must add the blocks to a category or the site home (if I want them to appear in *every* course), but firstly this does not compare well with our current setup and secondly many of those blocks are not relevant outside of the course context.
Can anyone tell me how to do this without changing core code? I should also note that we don't want users to be able to move or delete these blocks.
Any advice much appreciated. Steve
