Default block layout for new courses

To amend the default block layout for new courses in Moodle 1.5, add one or more of the following lines (omitting the forward slashes) to config.php and amend the block names as required.

// These variables define DEFAULT block variables for new courses
// If this one is set it overrides all others and is the only one used.
//      $CFG->defaultblocks_override =    'participants,activity_modules,search_forums,admin,course_list:news_items,calendar_upcoming,recent_activity';
//
// These variables define the specific settings for defined course formats.
// They override any settings defined in the formats own config file.
//      $CFG->defaultblocks_site = 'site_main_menu,admin,course_list:course_summary,calendar_month';
//      $CFG->defaultblocks_social =  'participants,search_forums,calendar_month,calendar_upcoming,social_activities,recent_activity,admin,course_list';
//      $CFG->defaultblocks_topics =  'participants,activity_modules,search_forums,admin,course_list:news_items,calendar_upcoming,recent_activity';
//      $CFG->defaultblocks_weeks =  'participants,activity_modules,search_forums,admin,course_list:news_items,calendar_upcoming,recent_activity';
// These blocks are used when no other default setting is found.
//      $CFG->defaultblocks = 'participants,activity_modules,search_forums,admin,course_list:news_items,calendar_upcoming,recent_activity';</pre>

Resetting the block layout for existing courses

The block layout for existing courses may be reset by copying the following script into a text file, saving it as resetblocks.php, copying it into the Moodle root directory, then visiting
http://yourmoodlesite.org/resetblocks.php
. Please note that a database backup is recommended before using the script. ;-)
<?php
require_once('config.php');
require_once($CFG->libdir.'/blocklib.php');
$courses = get_records('course');
foreach($courses as $course) {
   $page = page_create_object(PAGE_COURSE_VIEW, $course->id);
   blocks_repopulate_page($page);
}
print_heading('Done!');
?>
