          Ralf, thanks for your report. Assigning to Sam as navigation component lead.

          I'm sure I came across another similar report before, but I've searched and searched and just can't find it! If anyone does, please link the issues.

          Hi guys,

          I found 5 minutes free and created a setting that turns the sections in the navigation into links.
          Please please please if you want this to go in vote for it, otherwise as it is introducing a section and not all people like this functionality it may not be accepted.

          Also I need a peer-review and someone to test wouldn't hurt.

          Cheers
          Sam

          Hi guys,

          I noticed this enhancement has disappeared in version 2.3 - it's a great feature!
          I did a bit of digging into the git repository and noticed the 'navlinkcoursesections' entry disappeared from the admin/settings/appearance.php somewhere around between 2012-March-11 and 2012-May-04.

          Does anybody know why?

          Thanks!

          Cheers,
          Andy

          Hi Andy. Apparently it's because it is now always on - see Michael's comments in another tracker issue here MDL-34424
