Be able to select site look options via multiple tick box selection (instead single dropdown selection) so you could potentially have Announcements AND Resource/Activity drop downs on the main page or any combination of the current three options.
From the interface, you can select the order of each possible options displayed on the front page, or just hide it.
Have a try and you will see how it works.
There also seems to be some bug with this feature because I am getting two "Available Courses" sections on my site page unless I choose "Hide" in which case I get one. This of course added to my confusion about what these numbers meant.
If you don't have any other course categories than "Miscellaneous", and you are displaying both "list of courses" and "list of categories" on the front page you will have two "Available Courses" on there.
This is bacause if there are no other categories in the system the category block will default to displaying courses.
I think I can fix that.
You say that the list of categories may show courses in each category as well. Will that not be a problem on large sites with many courses?
Is there any way (other than hacking the code) to achieve the same look than in version 1.5.x with a list of Course categories (and subcategories) but WITHOUT the huge list of our courses?
If you have more than 20-30 courses on your moodle, the front page looks VERY bad this way, and it is very long too, which is not desirable.
TIA for your answer.
*waiting and hoping,
so I want to replace just the necessary files.
I just upgraded to 1.6.1 and have the new look on the front page. I too would like the old look of the categories/subcategories list. However, I am a total novice at this and don't know how to code. I am hoping it just requires changing a setting and you can indulge me with very specific steps to do it. Thanks, John
We are having the problem that we want to display the category the course is in as well for the list of courses the student is in. I though this was a combo list but when i select combo list it just gives me another list of categories that shows all the courses in that category. We are using 1.8.2
