Legacy course files

From MoodleDocs

Moodle 2.0

In Moodle 2.0 onwards, files are stored in separate areas, rather than together in the course files area. See Course files for a detailed explanation.

Note: It is recommended that teachers make use of the new repositories in Moodle 2.0 for storing course files, rather than saving them in a course files area.

In Moodle 2.0 the course files area has been renamed 'Legacy course files'. By default, this area is not available in new courses.

Enabling legacy course files areas

To enable a legacy course files area in a new course

  1. Enable the legacy course files repository plugin in Administration > Plugins > Repositories > Manage repositories.
  2. Check the legacyfilesinnewcourses box in the Manage repositories common settings then click the 'Save changes' button.
  3. Set 'Legacy course files' to Yes in the course settings.

A legacy course files link will then appear in the course administration block.
