      1. Create a course with several sections
      2. Click the actions menu (right side of the section headline), the popup must have a new "External section link" item.
      3. Click on this, a modal shows up with the link to the section. Copy it and open it in a new window.
      4. Move the sections in the course, so that the order differs.
      5. Repeat step 3. on the same section and you should get still the same link.

    Description

      Moodle has a way to generate two types of links to a course section:

      • Using the section number: course/view.php?id=XX#section-NUMBER
      • Using the static section id (permalink): course/view.php?id=XX#sectionid-ID-title

      However, using the interface it is only possible to get the first one based on section number. This means only teachers with HTML expertise can get the section permalink address by inspecting the page.

      It would be great if the section actions dropdown has a way to get both links visually. In many web applications, it is quite common to have a "share" options that open some modal to get the sharing URLs. This modal could also have some warning alerting the teacher if the section is hidden from students (so the link won't work for them).

      This will require some UX work to figure out which is the best approach.
