Default feedback setting

We have had two Lesson forum posts in the last two week about this subject. I made an edit but did not go into conditions that caused what might be considered a bug, just what to do if there was a teacher custom feedback that was being over ridden by the default response. I will come back and put the link to where to change the default feedback responses. If I have the time I may gather the facts from the forum and see if this has been put in Tracker --chris collman 06:58, 3 April 2008 (CDT)

Page name

Humm. This page is really about "Lesson Settings".

There should be another page about adding "adding a lesson" which obviously should reference this section.

I will set a redirect for a page on "Lesson Settings" as a quick fix until we/I figure out how to straighten this out. For the record I do like it and would like to link to sections when we are talking about scores, dependencies and flash cards for example. --chris collman 03:20, 5 May 2006 (WST)

Hi Chris, please note that the reason this page is named "Adding/editing a lesson" is because there is a link from a page in Moodle 1.6 with the same name. All other modules have documentation pages named "Adding/editing a ...". --Helen Foster 05:39, 7 May 2006 (WST)
Hi Helen, thanks for explaination. Works for me. Figured there was a reason, not my reason but a reason :) So the redirect is a good solution for the newbie who is trying to find something on lesson settings.--chris collman 06:32, 7 May 2006 (WST)
