      Description

      I'm currently working on a course on digital photography. Our students are divided into groups and are using the Moodle blog as a progress diary.

      Currently the blog menu block gives students and teachers the possibility to see all blog entries, the users entries or add a new entry about the current context, ie. the block has no notion of the course's group mode.

      I therefore propose an extension of the blog menu block to give the user the option to see all blog entries by members of the users group.

      Edit: The provided patch also solves a bug that causes no entries to be selected when filtering both on module and group.

        Hi, Erik.

        Thanks for sharing your patch.

        This would hide links to blogs in a course according to group, but I assume it would not prevent users from accessing blog entries at the site level.

        You seem to be relying on the capability mod/assign:grade. I don't think that's appropriate.

        I don't see this being integrated into core soon, but I will leave this entry here in case others are interested in the same functionality.
