Hello! I'm wondering if someone could point me to some "how to" documentation or other help resources regarding the "Use topic summary as template" and "Show icon in resource links in summary" options that are available in the Course settings when OneTopic is selected as the format. I'm using Moodle 3.5.3 but I would think that the general function applies across versions. Also using the Altitude theme, but can certainly use Clean or Boost to test it out. Browser is most recent version of Firefox.
The idea sounds interesting, but I'm having trouble understanding the exact intent of the feature as well as how to properly configure the topic sections as described in the help topic available via the course settings (see image below). I know the first two sentences of the help is trying to explain the intent, but I am simply not grasping it. I've tried searching for information on this option, but haven't come up with anything (hope I haven't missed something obvious, and if so, my apologies in advance!). Any guidance (or an example of use!) would be appreciated...
My English is not good, but I am going to try to explain the "template" functionality.
The template is useful when you want a different layout, not rows like moodle is by default.
The template is the HTML in the topic summary and you can insert the resources into the HTML with your name between double brackets, por example:
Next an example:
This example template use a three columns layout. Resources are inserted
in the diferents columns and the completion "check" looks with the
resource (this is not posible with the "activities auto link" filter).
You can chose if the icon looks with
the activity name: option Show icon in resource links in summary.
In edition mode, the course looks like the next image.
I hope my explanation clarifies things a bit.
Ah, perfect. Thank you so much David! That helps tremendously, and I now have a working example to experiment with.
Your explanation is very appreciated!
