Moodle Help & Support 


This refers to Moodle 3.10 from August 2021 onwards

Block settings explained

You may want to amend the settings of a block to make it always appear in a certain place for instance or to show on every page not just the main module page.  Below is a screen shot of the settings for the People block (they should look similar to other blocks apart from RSS feeds and HTML).

  1. In your module click on the Turn editing on icon (top right) 
  2. In the relevant block click the 'Cogwheel' and select 'Configure [Name of] block' from the drop down menu

Finding the configure option in the block's cogwheel menu

Where this block appears

    • 'Any page' (changes nothing)
    • 'Any module page' (any page in current module)
    • 'Any type of module main page' (main module page only)
  • "Default region": leave as default ('right')
  • "Default weight": help moves the block towards the top (-10) or bottom (10) of the block column
