    WONDERFUL! BUT... Every time (Logging Out), i'm unable to see "Home Page!" Once installed, this plug in redirect automatically to the Login Page! Bad idea... Uninstalled!

    Hi Vincenzo,
    Thank you for the video you have send me. I had to check it a few times, and then I realized what you did.

    You placed the block on the Moodle Site page, and it is not what it has been developed for.
    It is been developed for being a block with in a course page.

    As we said it gives the "ability to navigate more easily inside a course."

    It does not give this result when using it in a course. So I will have to check with the Developer on this issue.

    Thank you so much for finding the problem and give me a video.

    Well done! Great Plugin.
    The display modus gives us the choice for activity pages only. Have you considered to make block and sidebar appear in other pages, too?

    Hello Xavier,
    You can change the display choice when you are editing the block. Click on the cogwheel and you can change the display modus, you can see it in the English video at 1:35

    Hi Maimouna,
    I asume you / the teacher has added items to the block to appear. Please check the block setting (see video 1:35) if this is correct.
