      Description

      I have created a quiz with all the questions displayed on one page and I want the Quiz Navigation block to scroll down as the students scroll the quiz window during a quiz attempt. This way the countdown timer in the Quiz Navigation block is always visible to the student making it easier to keep track of time. But apparently the Quiz Navigation block doesn't have a ID so targeting this block with .css is difficult. Can this ID be added?

      A Using Moodle discussion about this issue: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=171630

      The solution that John proposes in that thread works quite nicely, but it also makes the quiz Settings block on the Quiz Preview screen (/mod/quiz/attempt.php?attempt=12345) scroll, which we don't want.

      Will adding a classes or ID as John suggested in that forum discussion solve this problem?

        I thought that all blocks (and fake blocks) on a page automatically got given an ID. For example, have a look at the PHPdoc comment on the $skipid field in block_contents in lib/outputcomponents.php. Sadly, that comment seem to be a lie.

        Fixed. I used mod_quiz_navblock on the grounds that that would probably not clash with anything else.
