Moodle 2.4 - Settings block not showing for one student
 

Hello,

I have one student (that I know of) who cannot see the Settings Block on the course page.  As a result, he is unable to view his grades (Settings - Course Administration- Grades).  All the other Blocks are showing for him.

I have 2 test accounts as a Student and I have no problem seeing the Settings Block, so I can't figure out why he can't see it.  I can also see it in my own account when I switch my role to student.

The Settings Block is configured to Display on page types: Any page. (I have just now set "Allow user to dock this block" to No.)

I don't know if this is related, but I recently changed my Navigation Block so that "Generate navigation for the following" was set to Everything.  I don't see how that could have affected it, but perhaps it did?

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Nicola

Have you actually seen first hand the course page with the student logged in? And although I know you changed the docking, are you absolutely sure he hasn't docked it before and it is still docked?What if for a short while you allow user themes and he changes the theme - does that make a difference?

I think he did end up docking it without realizing.  He sent me screenshots but I couldn't see the edge of the screen, so I couldn't see that he had done it.

I told him about the docking and now all is well.

On another note, though, it seems I can select No for "Allow user to dock this block"  for Navigation and Settings, but not for other blocks, such as Messages, Recent Activity, Online Users etc.  (The option is not available.)  Any reason for this?

Thanks.
