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: Navigation.

Please refer to these notes before editing this page.


In Moodle 2.0 onwards, there are two standard blocks on every page:

Navigation and Settings blocks

Navigation block

The Navigation block provide easy access to view various sections of the Moodle site and includes

  • My home - a personalised home page displaying links to the courses a user is associated with and activity information (such as unread forum posts and upcoming assignments)
  • Site pages - links to site pages and resources from the front page of Moodle
  • My profile - quick links allowing a user to view their profile, forums posts, blogs and messages as well as manage their private files
  • My courses - lists (by course shortname) and links to courses the user is associated with. Click the course's shortname to view the front page of the course or use the arrows to navigate quickly to a specific section, resource or activity.

Settings block

The Settings block provides you with easy access to change various settings of a Moodle site. This block shows contextual settings (the settings for a forum when you are viewing it as an editing user) as well as settings for anything else you have permissions for. All users have access to edit their profile and message settings from this block as well as their Blog preferences.
