      1. Go to Site administration > Appearance > Default Dashboard page and turn "Blocks editing on" (button in top right).
      2. CHECK that you can Delete and re-add the timeline block to the page (Timeline will normally show by default.)
      3. If the Timeline block exists on the page (default) press the cog on the timeline block and make sure the option to "Delete timeline block" is available and it deletes as requested.
      4. Re-add the block back to the page by using the "add a block" link to add the Timeline block back to the course.
      5. Test that you can add a new "HTML block" to the page and then delete it.
      6. Go to a course page and make sure editing is still on, then check to make sure that the "timeline" block is not available to add as a block to the page.

      Description

      The Default dashboard page ( /my/indexsys.php) no longer allows the adding or removing of  dashboard specific blocks.

      For example:

      "Course overview" block cannot be deleted from the default dashboard page.
      "Starred courses" cannot be added to the default dashboard page (but can be added to the users own individual dashboard.)
