Legacy course files
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Legacy course files.
In Moodle 2.0 onwards, files are stored in separate areas, rather than together in the course files area. (See File handling 2.0 for details).
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
- Enable the legacy course files repository plugin in Administration > Plugins > Repositories > Manage repositories.
- Check the legacyfilesinnewcourses box in the Manage repositories common settings.
- Set 'Legacy course files' to Yes in the course settings.
A legacy course files link will then appear in the course administration block.
