On my test Moodle I have a user assigned at site level as Course Creator and Teacher - the roles are unmodified.
Whilst logged in as this user, when I turn editng on at site level the administration block (when expanded) is empty. In 1.6.x this displayed a "Courses" link to http://mysite/moodle/course/index.php.
I can access http://mysite/moodle/course/index.php by typing the address but how can I get the "Course" link to show as before, alteratively what is the replacement mechanism to allow those allocated as Course Creators to access the Create new course button?
This site is an upgrade from 1.6.1.
There is no link in either the Administration or site Administration blocks.
