I find a number of discussions where new users have raised queries but with no replies to guide them. Can some experienced people take the lead in replying to the queries, please?
This comes up every so often. If a post in those forums has 0 replies and I possibly can I will reply. However, if I can't (and nobody else can) then it's generally because the post is so unintelligible that I don't know where to start. This can, unfortunately, be due to English not being the OP's first language or it can simply be due to the lack of effort in asking a sensible question with some background information - "It doesn't work".
The flip side of this is that I often reply to a posting and never hear anything ever again. That's pretty frustrating.
I completely understand your point. I have a couple of my queries unanswered and I am not able to move forward. If you think you can answer them, I request you to do so. If not, I would appreciate if you can suggest someone who will be able to answer them.
I agree with Howard. Because a post has no replies it does not mean that it's not been seen by Moodle experts. It's just that for whatever reason (understanding the problem as described, specific knowledge or simply the time to reply) is left. Sometimes I may not notice a post in another forum for my plugins (themes and course formats) for weeks or months, then come across it and if I have time, reply.
I could only find two posting...
One was about removing certain items from the UI. It's entirely likely that nobody has ever done this. It sounds like an unusual requirement. Hence no answers. However, I have moved it to the Themes forum. My starting point would be to see if these elements can be 'hidden' with some custom theming.
The other question I found was about Woocommerce. Again, it's possible nobody here has any relevant experience. I know there are some commercial solutions available but nothing I can recommend.

*One option is to bump a post.
*It's also worth re-reading the post to see if there is an issue, lack of clarity (etc) that is causing a nonp-response.
*We are pretty well all volunteers here Rameshwar - and even the paid folk have no obligation to respond.
*Things move at their own pace. Sometimes it is just chance that a post is not answered.
In actual fact, no-one has any obligation to do anything here. No-one has a right to expect an answer. If you want to be helpful, then you can bump someones post, or in your case here, you can let us know specifically what threads and non answered posts you are referring to. If I see a bump, or a request for response to something, most of the time I will try.
At any given time in the last few years I have had 3-9 posts languishing for lack of a response. Sometimes people are just busy, not interested, or they disagree with me. Ce la vie.
My 2c worth.
I completely understand that all of you are selflessly helping users. No two thoughts about it. I am sure all those who raise queries are thankful to those who solve their problems.
Let me also mention that though I am a new user of Moodle, I do make it a point to visit the forum to consciously attempt to answer the queries raised by others.
Thanks for all your effort, once again.
