If sections are moved or if new sections are inserted between existing ones, the sections are renumbered and links to sections become incorrect because they are not automatically updated according to the new numbering.
Is it possible to keep the correct links to the different sections of a Moodle course even if sections are moved or new sections are inserted?
It would be nice if the sections could have a user-defined name, much like in a wiki, which would allow maintaining links to them.
Hello Emma and Gareth,
There are literally hundred of tracker issues with the keywords "section, link". I installed CONTRIB-6782 Plugin approval: Section names auto-linking (filter_sectionnames), but I do not know how it works and if it's even relevant.
In any case, I opened the Tracker issue MDL-62323 Preserve links to sections.
Thanks. I just discovered that links were broken when rearranging sections (pretty sure this wasn't a thing before) and hd to go through and re-link all my sections. Anyone else find a better workaround or fix?
