      Description

      If you open some ofthesub pages the tab My Courses is not visible.

      Most of them are pages with other Moodle systems or from docs.moodle.org
      Others are some of the download pages.

      This behaviour is not expected and may be confusing.

        Ralf, thanks for your report.

        As you've noticed, the My Courses dropdown menu is only available within the moodle.org Moodle site, and not for the other moodle.org sites (tracker, Moodle Docs etc.). It doesn't appear at all for people who don't login or who use guest access.

        I can't decide whether it's more confusing for it not to appear for other moodle.org sites, or whether if it did, this would also cause confusion. I've added Martin as a watcher for comments.

        Well, it's damn near impossible to allow those courses to follow one around the other sites, they are completely different technology (eg tracker is a Java program on another server) ... I'd like it to as well, but, well, it's an open problem.

        We all know that there are different systems behind the dropdown menus. But millions of moodle.org users don't know this.

        I think it is a very small aspect of the general usability discussions. There are other places to discuss more intensive

        Samuli, thanks for your comment. I've found the same. Hopefully Martin can fix the problem soon.

        This seems to be corrected now. Should we close it?

        Nicolas, you're right, Martin has fixed the "My Courses" menu. Thanks Martin

        I'm resolving this issue as won't fix though as it seems almost impossible to have the "My Courses" menu on other moodle.org sites.
