Administration block

From MoodleDocs

The administration block is used to provide context-sensitive links to settings pages when using the Clean or More theme, or a custom theme based on Clean.

(The Boost theme in Moodle 3.2 onwards uses gear icon links to provide access to settings pages rather than the administration block.)

What appears in the administration block depends upon where the user is and what role they have in that location. For example, a site administrator on the front page will have Front page settings while a teacher in a course will have more options in Course administration than a student.

Here are examples of the Administration block:

Note: In Moodle 3.2 onwards, the Competencies and Grades links have been moved from the Administration block to the Navigation block (or nav drawer if using Boost) so that the Administration block does not need to be shown to students.
