I am still hopeful for a world where one section per page actually means that. Is that a thing anywhere or likely to be?
A number of years ago I was lucky enough to win some of Gareth Barnard's time and he edited a course layout that stopped the General section from displaying on every page and made a course display only one section per page but sadly that course layout is quite dated (v2.6).
I have been working on trying to bring Moodle into my current workplace because I'm a fan and have developed a training course for staff but despite choosing the Topics format and Show one section per page it still shows all sections on the course landing.
This has never made sense to me; the whole point was to cut down the scroll of death, not be bombarded with content, and to cut down loading time (why download all content at once when I have selected not to?).
I know that once you click on a section its one per page but it seems counterintuitive.
I've found other posts in the past of people asking the same thing but I still have yet to see a solution to what seems more like a bug than a feature.
I have too much content for the Grid format and I tried Collapsed Topics but it's a little dated looking - I'm loving Moodle 3.5 and Boost and the topic format works for me in every way except that. Sadly my php skills don't extended far enough to build my own course formats.
Has anyone else found a workable solution?
Maybe you can try this course format (https://moodle.org/plugins/format_collapsibletopics). It doesn't have all the options that Gareth's collapsed topics offers, but proposes a simple collapsible behaviour to sections.
Hi. I did mention above that I tried Collapsed Topics
I've moved this post to the Courses and course formats forum as that is a more appropriate place for it.
Have you considered advertising on Moodle jobs for someone to help?
Perfect! Setting it to hide tab bars and section 0 to be displayed as a tab gave me exactly what I wanted. Much appreciated, thank you
