    Description

      If a site admin creates a global glossary in a course and then wants to use the glossary_random block to display random entries on the frontpage it is not possible because currently only glossaries of that course are displayed; however, I would expect a global glossary to be visible and usable as well. This issue was raised in http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=108686 but never responded to. I now have a client that wants to be able to do this so I am looking into it. Peace - Anthony
