I'm really not sure what this means. Does it actually mean "do not create elements that are conditional upon the values of other submitted elements" as opposed to not creating conditional elements at all?

There's items on here (e.g. 'duration') that are 2.0 only. Please can people adding them mark them as such to avoid confusion. Ta --Howard Miller 11:42, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi Howard, You can just add {{Moodle 2.0}} to those items. I did that for 'duration'. --Frank Ralf 11:54, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
