      Description

      When admins check the allowvisiblecoursesinhiddencategories setting, students are still not able to access visible courses contained in hidden categories.

      Two possibilities:

      1. the setting only works for some roles different from student role. In this case the description accompanying the setting should be enhanced to better explain what roles are affected.

      2. if all roles are affected, the setting does not work properly.
