So one of the tasks I’ve been given to do in my new job is to check out Moodle and find a way to give users the ability to get notifications when something changes in their classes weekly board.
I did some research and came across ‘notify-changes‘ on SourceForge.
It was pretty simple to install, just unzip it, drop it into the ‘blocks’ folder inside moodle and thats the basics of it.
Then you have to install it through moodle in Site Administration – Notifications.
So far it does seem to work, though I have noticed that the ability for users to enable/disable notifications disappears for no reason, or rather, doesn’t appear initially. It seems to be fixed by enabling in the blocks Administration and disabling it again, then re-enabling it.
After all the modifications I’ve been making to my website, I figured I had better make sure that it’s all still W3C valid. XHTML, yes, CSS, no.
Apparently the CSS element which I used to round the borders on tables, border-radius, isn’t included in the CSS2 specification. So apparently CSS3 is the way to go.
Unfortunately the link on the banner they give you only refers to the CSS2 specification. I can’t remember the specific website I found this link on, but a quick Google will found it: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer?profile=css3
So basically all you need is to add ?profile=css3 to the end of the normal URL they give you.
