Is this the right thread to post in, I'm asking about Fordson 3.3
I'm playing catchup with developments in this wonderful theme. We can upgrade to 3.3 next week, and I'm just trying to get clear on the new features of Fordson.
A few questions. From the diagram below. Done a bit of searching, but I still am unclear.
- I thought these items were able to be removed with a setting somewhere. Is this true or not?
- Is there a setting to reduce this space?
- The course management tab. I assume this in replacing "This course". Are there any other options of where to put it?
- I used to use Course Menu. https://moodle.org/plugins/block_course_menu.
I'd like to try with just the Boost drawer. However, the menu items are spread out quite a lot, and if I have more than seven sections the bottom ones are off the bottom of the page. Is there a simple way to cramp up the boost menu items, and yes I do know this breaks the nice spacious look. Just thinking.
- THE AIM OF ALL THIS.
Two things: see the yellow bounded area - I'd like to reduce as much as possible the height of the material at the top of the page to have as much of the page as possible for the content.
Also the Drawer section navigation: I'd like as simple and uncluttered section navigation in the drawer.
That's it for now as far as my questions go!!
Other random stuff
I'm using the Atto snippets to get some nice tabs.
I have not quite sorted out if I want background images yet in Fordson.
I'm assuming (Below)I can get the tiles to align with increasing/decreasing the text length:
Little things: I like the dropdown in the home page icon menu. "Slider toggle" will be a "start here" link.
Also nice having a built in "Site message" - I will style this to stand out a little more maybe.
Really like the "Course Management" tab. Next thing to do: check the student course view a bit more.
Well done and thanks Chris and Dearborne team!!
