      We used to link to hidden Moodle pages to be able to add links to our Moodle pages in blocks, labels, etc., but it is no longer working.

      I get the following error:

      Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: PHP catchable fatal error

      Debug info: Argument 3 passed to global_navigation::load_activity() must be an instance of navigation_node, boolean given, called in [dirroot]/lib/navigationlib.php on line 1205 and defined

      I thought perhaps there was an issue with our Moodle code, or database, so I reinstalled Linux and Moodle 2.5, and tried again, to no avail.

      To recreate the issue I create a Page within a course, copy the url, then make the Page hidden, then link to the page from somewhere else within the site. As an admin, it works just fine, when I switch my role to a student it gives me the PHP error.

      This had worked in past iterations of Moodle.
