Template:Forums The news forum is a special forum that is automatically created for each course and for the front page of the site, and is a place for general announcements. By default, only teachers and administrators may add news or reply to news. By default, everyone is forced to be subscribed to the news forum.
The Latest News block displays recent discussions from the news forum. A course may only have one news forum.
Removing the news forum
The news forum may be removed from a course as follows:
- Delete the news forum from the course homepage
- In Course settings set "News items to show" to 0
- Delete the Latest news block
- Upgrading to Moodle 1.8 for steps to enable logged-in users to read the site news
