      Go to the course default settings page, and see if the new "'Maximum for number of weeks/topics" setting is there.

      Set that setting to something different.

      Create a new course, and/or edit an existing course. Make sure that number of week/topics option goes up to the maximum you set.

      Description

      There are occasions when more than 52 sections can be needed in a course, yet there is no way to create a greater number of sections except to directly modify the code--if one has the necessary permissions to do so. Could there be a setting in the site level course/course default settings page called "MaximumSections" which could have as a default "52" but which would allow the site admin to manually enter another number if required? I think that a simply text box entry would be preferable to a pulldown selection for this.
