      Description

      The current Front Page Settings page has this set of options (for the Front page items when logged in config) :

      News items
      List of courses
      List of categories
      Combo list
      None

      These are a very limited set of options:

      We suggest the following options that cover the funcionality most required by our clients:

      News items
      List of all the courses
      List of my courses
      List of all the categories
      List of my categories (categories with a course where Ii'm enrolled)
      Combo list
      Combo list with my courses (only showing categories with a course where I'm enrolled)

      And the possibility to link the user's system role to a frontpage configuration in a matrix:

      Front page items when logged in, for example:

      System Role | Admin | Course Creator | Teacher | Non editing teacher | Student | Guest | Auth user|
