Adding/removing topics

Hi!

In 3.3 Moodle, there is no more "-" sign to remove topics at the bottom of the page. Does anybody know how can I delete topics? I used Orphan topics quite often I find it very useful. For instance, if I hide topics, and students can't see it, but he/she can see on Course overview block that he/she has 60% work done, because Moodle calculate also hidden topics. But with Orphan topics that was not the case. So, does anybody knows how get to orphan topics again.

Thank you.

Ivica

The option to delete a topic is in the edit drop down for the individual topics.

If you are used to using orphaned topics, then please read the documentation on Stealth activities which is the New, Improved orphaned topics smile

Hi Mary,

I wonder if you still think this is an improvement? I like the idea of the stealth activity but not at the expense of easily controlling the number of sections. It seems that we can now add as many sections as we like but can only remove these sections one at a time! Given a choice I would switch back to orphaned sections until this problem is resolved.

There is a tracker related to this issue:

Thanks,

Jim

I was about to post this same thing, Jim!!!!  Why can we no longer tell the "edit settings" area how many sections to show??????

I like to do my courses in units.  Some have 4 units and some have 10.  Having to delete sections one at a time to clear up clutter is so cumbersome.  

Is it possible to just add that feature back into the Edit Settings area?  Please!!!!
