I really would like it back the way that it was: that topic= or section= does show just one topic on the page when in "Show all sections".
My real question for Dan is: "is the change, is the current behaviour (ie single section vs all in one set at course level) an intentional change, or an oversight?"
The new format has some navigation at the top in the section zero area. But there are only two options: "next section" and "previous section".
It has the "Go back to course home" at the bottom.
- There is no drop down list, set of links etc to choose any other section
- You need to scroll to the bottom for the Got Home link
- . . there is the nav menu, often too this is a scroll down.
It doesn't cut it for me. I have got into the habit of keeping any course design I engage in with a small number of sections, and creating manually a menu in section 1
Just like has been described in a myriad of Scroll of death posts in youtube, blogs and here.
If there are a LOT of course sections I create a menu in a top left HTML block. Manually.
Regular navigation inside a course from section to section (when it is not the next or the previous one) doesn't really come part of the section area. Is there a plan for this? Otherwise, I'm back to a seach for the best course format plugin.
For instance, I'd love a setting that says "Insert section navigation in section zero" (Which I know would be interesting to code)
Something like this, which I know is pretty clunky, but let someone loose on it who knows CSS and it could be tidied up):
