"topic 1", "topic 2" etc. is next to useless - allow them to be changed to a custom title for the topic or allow them to be switched off

      Description

      I've always thought that topic numbers where less than useful. We find that most customers hate them and ask for them to be removed (unprompted). Shock horror - in Moodle 2.0 they become even more prominent in the navigation block. IMHO, non-mutually exclusive options:

      • Make 'topic n' editable so it can have a proper title. Perhaps editing the header for the topic can have an additional "short name' that becomes the topic name in navigation?
      • Allow them to be switched off altogether.

      Same applies to the "Topic outline" text at the top of a course. Major source of complaint.
