We are running Moodle 3.4. I have turned Stealth Activities on at the site level. However there is no access to this feature within courses.
You can hide a resource in a section but the Make Available option is not there.
Yep. I have read the documentation and watched the videos. I have just checked again and nothing is hidden.
Very strange. I suppose I sort it out it will turn out to be something simple but at present I cannot see it.
Is there any possibility of a conflict with plugins?
That is exactly it. I have turned on Stealth Activities. As I understand it it is a simple process. I have some scree shots of what I have done.
Turned stealth on
Hide a resource
Go back to edit and select Make Available
And this is were I have a problem. I cannot see "Make Available". I only get the same options again
Am I missing something simple?
We have made some progress
We have found that Hide but make available appears if the course is set to topics format but not grid format.
Still not solution but we progress,
Solution (I think)
When I read the documentation closely I read this
"From 'Advanced features', administrators may 'Allow stealth activities' in courses. Teachers will then be able to make activities (or resources) available to students but not shown on the course page. This feature is supported in "Weeks", "Topics", "Social" formats and on the front page. Other course formats may or may not implement it."We are using a grid format across the entire college and it seems that Stealth is not supported in Grid format.
I wonder if any future upgrades to either Stealth or Grids format might be going to fix this?
Or if there is a work around? Abandoning Grid format would cause a riot.
Ok, I've come across this via https://github.com/gjb2048/moodle-format_grid/issues/69 because I've been told about it. Please, please, please post in the Moodle forum appropriate and I'll see it - i.e. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=47. It is your duty to do so via the 'Forums code of conduct' - https://moodle.org/mod/page/view.php?id=7080 that you've signed up to by using this site.
And currently I don't have an answer.
I could replicate this issue. It seems to be a combo grid format/adaptable theme.
I was reported that stealth mode was not available in a course using grid format. I tested with a different format and it was working fine.
Then I found this topic and recognized Adaptable theme in the screenshot above. I switched to Boost and tested again in a course with grid format. Stealth mode then worked with newly added activities under Boost but not with previously added activities.
Our Grid format plugin is 2016111505. Oups!
Upgrading the grid format plugin fixed it.
