Blocks: Login / User info

Maintained by Picture of Eiz Eddin Al Katrib Eiz Eddin Al Katrib
Moodle block which provides all functionality of block_login and displays additional information (username, avatar, logout button) as soon as the user is logged in

The block_login_userinfo plugin has two views: As long as the user is logged out, it displays a login form just as block_login does. As soon as the user is logged in, block_login dispears. In contrast to this, block_login_userinfo displays pleasant information about the logged in user like his/her username, his/her avatar. Additionally, it displays a logout button where the user expects it to be: exactly at the position where the login button was previously.

Furthermore, for teachers and admins, block_login_userinfo shows exactly the same information as the login info section which is normally found in the top right corner of your moodle page - especially information about role changes and about failed user logins.

    Quick status update from me concerning the plugin adoption programme:

    * I am still happy to hand over the plugin to another developer, but I realized that the adopting developer should be reasonably experienced to continue the work.
    * Chintan wanted to come back to me with more information in May but I haven't heard from him since then.
    * Vikram, I don't see any proof of experience from you here on Please send me a private message with more details if you are still interested.
    * I have another request from another developer, but have to discuss some more details with him.

    Hi there. I am a new user so if I am missing something obvious, please excuse me. I installed the block, no issue with the installation. Problem is, it does not appear under the 'ADD A BLOCK' block. Running Moodle 3.0

    Hi Henry,
    You need to go to the home page (Site home) and add it from there.
