Main menu block

The main menu block can be added to the front page of the site by a site administrator. Resources and activities can then be added to the front page,( for example to create a side menu for your Moodle site.)

The main menu block as a side menu

It is possible to use the main menu block with Moodle pages to create a side menu for your Moodle site, instead of or as well as the custom menu items at the top of your site. Thus you could have pages "About", "Contact" and so on.

  1. Turn on the editing on the front page
  2. From the "Add block" dropdown, add the main menu block if it is not already present
  3. From "Add an activity or resource" choose Page and add your information.
  4. Repeat for other pages.

When the editing is turned off the menu block appears as in the screenshot below:
