Course/site summary block

From MoodleDocs
Note: The Course/site summary block is disabled in new installations of Moodle 4.0.


Enabling the Course/site summary block

An administrator can enable the block from Site administration > Plugins > Blocks and opening the 'eye' of Course/site summary block.

The block provides a summary and/or description for your course as contained in the summary text of the course settings.

Note: The front page summary, accessed from Administration > Front page Settings > Edit settings, can appear as a side block similar to the course summary blocks. Alternatively, if you want your front page summary in the centre of the front page, check "include a topic section" in the Edit settings page and instead of using the summary block, type your front page summary text into the topic section.

Note: Images cannot be added to the site summary block via the file repositories - although a URL reference to an image can be used here. Some people use the "include a topic section" mentioned above to add images to this block.
