If you want to create a new page for developers, you should create it on the Moodle Developer Resource site.

Usability issues - Upload

From MoodleDocs

First some screenshots of the pages with an upload file option have been researched through Moodle:


Upload Wiki

File database


File exercise



The pevious screenshots can be clasified in a table:

Upload screenshots classification
ID Screenshots Variables Buttons
1 Wiki and other activities and resources Image, layout, spacing, size, etc. Create folder, zip, unzip, rename,etc.
2 Files, Frontpage Site Files Browse, upload and cancel.
3 Import, Frontpage Questions Browse and import groups / Choose or upload a file and import this file.
4 Upload users / upload user pictures CVS, enconding, overwrite, etc. Browse and upload user (pictures)
5 Upload a file / picture in database and exercise activity module Title Browse and upload


Ideally it should be only two types of uploading files:

  • The simple one: that would be applicable to Files, Frontpage Site Files, Import, Frontpage Questions and Upload users / upload user pictures. This interface would contain:
    • An indication of the max size with a help question
    • Browse
    • Upload
    • Cancel
    • [Other information depending on the type of upload file]
  • The detailed one: that would be applicable to wiki pages and other activities and resources (should not be changed)
