Añadir un bloque a una página

Para añadir bloques en una página, se debe activar la edición y seleccionar la opción 'Añadir un bloque' del menú desplegable correspondiente.

En la sección Bloques se puede dar una ojeada a la lista de los disponibles en una instalación estándar de Moodle. En un sitio se pueden incluir bloques de terceros o quien lo administre puedo haber deshabilitado determinados bloques específicos. Se debe tener en cuenta que la capacidad para añadir bloques está controlada por la de "añadirinstancia" (block/comments:addinstance), que por defecto está permitida para quienes detentan el rol docente.

Acciones del bloque

Después de añadir un bloque, haga clic en el ícono para editar en el encabezado del bloque para configurarlo.

Configuraciones del bloque

Algunos bloques, como el Bloque HTML, permiten que se configure un título del bloque y más.

Donde aparece este bloque

Depending upon the context and user permissions, this area determines where this block will appear. See this forum post explaining block contexts for more information.

  • Original block location: provides information about where the block was initially created.
  • Display on page types: allows the user to set the context that the block can appear in. These options will vary depending upon the permissions of the user. For example a site administrator might see a setting that will allow the block to appear on Any page, or any type of course main page, while a teacher may only see the option to place it on every page in the course.
  • Default region: Usually a right column or left column option
  • Default weight: Where in the column do you want it to appear if there are other blocks in that column. -10 will put it at the top, 10 will put it at the bottom. A zero is neutral.

'Sticky blocks'

The term 'sticky' block was used in older versions of Moodle to mean blocks which the admin added either site-wide or to the Tablero and which could not be deleted by regular users. Although the term is no longer used, it is still possible to make blocks 'sticky' and in a wider variety of locations.

If an admin deletes a "sticky" block in a course, they receive a warning of the site-wide consequences of this action before it is deleted.

Here are a few examples:

Making a block sticky throughout the whole site

The Moodle administrator might wish for example to display support contact details site-wide using an Bloque HTML called 'Helpdesk':

  1. As an administrator, turn on the editing on the front page and add the block you wish to make sticky.
  2. For Where this block appears > Page contexts, choose 'Display throughout the entire site'.
  3. Decide other settings according to your preference and save.
  4. The block will now appear on all pages of your Moodle.

Making a block sticky throughout a course

A teacher might wish to display a block, such as the comments block, on the course page and all activity pages.

  1. As a teacher in the course, turn on the editing on the course main page and add the block you wish to make sticky.
  2. For Display on page types, choose 'Any page'.
  3. Decide other settings according to your preferences and save.
  4. The block will now appear on all pages of the course.

Making a block sticky in a category

A user with category rights might for instance wish to display a [[Bloque de canales RSS remotosin all of the courses within a particular category, such as a Head of Science adding Science news feeds to the Physics, Biology and Chemistry courses.

Making a block sticky in a resource or an activity

A teacher might wish to display a block in one particular resource or activity, for example a Head of Faculty might make create a Book for departmental policies and wish to add the comments block to every chapter/page of a book so colleagues can give quick feedback. (Note that such a comments block would be the same block on each chapter/page)

  1. As a teacher in the course, turn on the editing and click into the resource/activity -in this case a Book and add the block.
  2. For Display on page types, you will see (for example) 'mod-book*'
  3. Decide other settings according to your preferences and save.
  4. The block will now appear on all related screens.

Block permissions

To change role permissions for a block

  1. Turn editing on in the course
  2. In the actions menu in the header of the block, click Permissions'.
