You can now activate enhanced features for the Collapsible Topics Course Format https://moodle.org/plugins/format_collapsibletopics designed to provide a seamless and powerful integration of theme and course format. Fordson provides an enhanced user experience based on this course format.

  • Fixed course completion bar showing when not logged in https://github.com/dbnschools/moodle-theme_fordson/issues/73
  • Modified and enhanced activity completion bar on topic and weekly course format. Set the course format to show one topic/week per page and enable activity completion to see the progress bar for each topic on the course homepage. The new look is clean, slim, and modern looking.
  • Changed permission to get Site Admin button to "has_capability('moodle/site:configview', $context)". Previously we used "is_siteadmin()" to check for permission to show the button. This will allow more flexibility in allowing quick access to site admin area without having to make a user a site admin. you might only want to allow a user to manage badges. By giving them this permission they will get a link to site admin which will show them what they have access to.
