      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.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
