How to move items around the Moodle page
You can easily drag and drop items to move them around a Moodle page. To do this, click on the 'Turn editing on' button (top right).
Click and hold to drag the 'Crossed arrows' icon next to the section or resource you'd like to move. (indicated on the left of the screenshot below)
'Cross / Crossed arrows': Click on and hold down this icon to drag items around the page
'Pencil': This will edit the title of the resource. Make sure you press Enter to save your changes.
Click on the word 'Edit' to the right of a particular resource or activity and it will give you the following options -
'Edit settings': This will give you access to the full range of settings for the resource or activity.
'Move right': This will indent an item towards the right hand side. (Once the 'Move right' option is used, the 'Move left' option will be added to the Edit drop-down menu)
'Hide': This makes the item unavailable to students. (The other options are Show to make it fully visible or Make available which hides it in that particular spot but makes it possible to link to from elsewhere in the module, in the way that orphaned activities used to be linkable: now called stealth activity.)
'Duplicate': This copies the item, which will then appear below. This is useful for creating multiple items that might share similar information.
'Assign roles': By assigning a role to a user in a context, you are granting them the permissions contained in that role, for the current context and all lower contexts. For example, if a user is assigned the role of student in a module, they will also have the role of student for all activities and blocks within the module .
'Delete': This removes the item. Be sure that you wish to delete the item, as it can be retrieved only for a limited time after deletion. It is kept for 24 in the Recycle bin and after that time is gone for good (please contact email@example.com with any problems)
To restore an item from the Recycle bin
If an item is accidentally deleted, wait a few minutes for it to appear in the Recycle bin.
- Click the 'Cogwheel' and scroll down to select 'Recycle bin'
2. In the Recycle bin, you will see the deleted item(s)
3. Click on the 'Arrow' to restore
4. The item will reappear at the bottom of the section it was deleted from
