      Description

      I have attempted to modify the Course Creator role to allow them to create, delete, and update categories. No matter what I do, the option to create the categories does not appear. Currently, I have the options setup according to:

      moodle/category:create
      moodle/category:delete
      moodle/category:update
      moodle/category:visibility

      If, I modify the option for "Change site configuration" to ALLOW, then the categories can be setup. But, this allows gives full capability to modify the front page, server settings, etc. This is totally unacceptable. Please help resolve this issue, or give some direction of where I might find a solution. Thank you!
