Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Database templates.


tag usage

To use the tags found on the left side... use the HTML viewer, place your cursor in the text area of your target edit and then click on the tag you want to place.

##Edit## - > launches the edit interface when viewing
##More## - > don't know
##Delete## - > challenges before deletion
##Approve## - > Allows admin/teacher to approve the database entry 
I find no relation to any grading or scoring for the person who submitted the entry... so teacher approval doesn't translate into any student reward? Tough sell to get younger students to do this exercise without direct translation into tokens for their grades. Pedagogy aside, tokens is how most of the capitalistic world functions and most lower grade students understand grades as a calculation of points.--Dennis Daniels 20:16, 25 May 2006 (WST)

list template tab

Defines browsing interface for multiple entries


single template tab

Defines browsing interface for a single entry.

add template tab

Defines the interface when editing entries What does the reset template do? No challenge before resetting so be careful...

RSS template tab

Defines appearance of entries in RSS feeds


CSS template tab

Defines local CSS styles for the other templates How is stuff being saved? And, wouldn't an existing CSS pre-loaded by nice? Hand coding CSS? Copy and paste? mod/data/templates.php?d=1&mode=csstemplate

Usage Issues

Can't tell how or where the templates are being saved or what the tags do.--Dennis Daniels 16:16, 25 May 2006 (WST)

I personally think each php with a "mode" should have its own help page...--Dennis Daniels 16:14, 25 May 2006 (WST)

AJAX anyone? Seems like a great place for it... :)

It occurred to me that setting up templates could be a matter of copying and pasting HTML with the database tags ... testing the idea now... --Dennis Daniels 19:35, 25 May 2006 (WST)


Are there multiple templates allowed? Can't find any interface to suggest more than one template...
