Activity names auto-linking filter
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Activity names auto-linking filter.
The Activity names auto-linking filter is a site Filter that will create links to an activity whenever the name of the activity is written in texts within the same course in which the activity is located. This includes forum postings, pages, labels etc.
Site Administration settings
Activity names auto-linking must be enabled by an administrator via Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Filters. This Filter can be enabled by selecting either On (where activity names will be by default auto-linked) or Off but available.
Within a course, the filter settings may be changed by navigating to Course administration>Filters
In addition, you can apply this filter to Content or to Content and headings within a course. Please note applying filters to headings as well as content can greatly increase the load on your server. It is recommended to use the 'Apply to' settings sparingly. The main use is with the multilang filter.
Using the up/down arrows in the Order column you can specify the order in which each of the enabled Filters are applied.
