Affects Version/s: 3.9.4
Fix Version/s: None
Literally everything in Moodle is SLOW.
Hence it becomes even more important to avoid unnecessary page loads.
The UI could be streamlined in so many places. Consider adding a simple URL link to a page, e.g., to some external reading material.
Right now, you need to:
- Realize that you cannot edit
- Scroll all the way up
- Click "enable editing" and wait for the reload
- Scroll back down
- Click add activity
- Scroll the nested list until you finally find Link/URL quite at the bottom, despite being frequently used
- Scroll the outer window to reach the actual "add" button
- Wait for another page load
- Click on title, because the cursor is not pre-placed
- Type Title and URL
- Scroll down
- Open "presentation" fold
- Change the incredibly stupid default "automatic" to "open"
- Scroll further down
- Finally save, and wait for another page reload
- Repeat for the other 10 URLs for this week
That is why everybody complains that Moodle being slow and complicated. Navigation is this complicated everywhere, you need way too many clicks and steps to reach anything.
Recommended workaround by IT support: put everything in a single text label; but then you don't get access counts for the URLs.
