      Description

      Ben Reynolds sent me a question about the welcometocoursetext string in /lang/en_utf8/moodle.php which is currently defined as:

      $string['welcometocoursetext'] = 'Welcome to $a->coursename!

      If you have not done so already, you should edit your profile page
      within the course so that we can learn more about you:

      $a->profileurl';

      The phrasing suggests that if you edit your profile page it is for that course; however, it is really for the site and thus I agree that it is slightly misleading as someone might believe that they have a course profile page or a profile within a course. I think it would be improved by simply removing 'within the course'. I'll attach a patch. Thanks for considering this.

      Peace - Anthony

        Thanks for this Anthony.
        I aggree the word "course" is not doing anything usefull there. Thanks for the patch - handing this to Helen since she does English.
