Managing filters


Managing filters at course or activity level

To enable/disable filters in a course or activity:

  1. Go to Administration > Course administration > Filters or if we are in an activity Administration > Activity administration > Filters
  2. Set each filter on or off as required
  3. Click the 'Save changes' button

Managing filters at site level

A site administrator can enable filters for the site in Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Filters > Manage filters.

Certain filters have additional settings, which can be accessed via the links in the settings column.

Tip: The 'Off but available' setting is useful for example if you only want emoticons for use in social forums.

Filters capabilities

There is just one filters capability, Manage local filter settings, which is allowed for the default roles of manager and teacher.
