    Description

      The footer displays two links to the "Services and support" (currently it leads to https://moodle.com/solutions/certified-service-providers/) and "Contact site support".

      "Services and support" is hardcoded and can't be configured, which is problematic especially for Moodle Partners since it actually leads to the link to "Find a Moodle Partner".

      This ticket is to add a new setting to configure this URL in "Server / Support Contact" (/admin/settings.php?section=supportcontact)

      Our suggestion:

      • Change the string of the "Support page" setting to "Link to 'Contact site support'" and a change the help text (see below)
      • Add a new setting for the 'Services and support' link (see below)
