It's been almost 6 months since i started using moodle now. When i get lost in the maze of forums, i suddenly bump into a brilliant block which has long been created but would never turn up in my searches because of the vastness of the English language. Take a look at this table :
Name of the Block
Keywords used for search that never showed up the block post
|Course Main menu||module Activities block, module block, add modules in block,|
|CMS like||website block,page in block, home pages, etc etc ...this one is naughty, never turns up whatever u do unless u use the exact CMS word or "site navigation"|
|Objects||insert modules, readymade module insert, upload content|
|Myfiles||user files area, upload personal files, store files online, area for file storage etc..|
Now i have a feeling that there are a 100 other blocks hidden deep inside Moodle -- to deep to extract till you're lucky.
I suggest that in the Moodle download page, just the way we have an option to download Modules, there should be an option for Blocks - along with the development status. If the Block is a contrib or under trial, so be it - it should be mentioned so.
