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, it is placed in the top of the center section and 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.

  1. Delete the news forum from the course homepage
  2. In Course settings set "News items to show" to 0
  3. Delete the Latest news block
  4. Alternatively - hide the news forum
