    Moodle & Sub Categories

    We have just setup moodle as our VLE. Have just noticed a problem that we are going to have down the line on the front page. We want a structure that will look like this.

    ICT
    Upper Sixth
    Lower Sixth
    Year 12
    Year 11
    Year 10
    Year 9
    Year 8
    English
    A-Level
    GCSE
    KS4
    KS3
    etc

    As you can see that the front page is going to get messy, after two subjects. I would like to hide all subcategories on the frontpage. But can't see how you do this.

    Is there a piece of code that must be edited??

    Moodle Forums

    Quick search on the Moodle forums does the trick:

    http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=33090

    Looks like you can change the depth of display.

    [edit]Try this also:

    You need to select only List of categories in Front page setting and if you want to display only part of the category tree, try add this line
    $CFG->max_category_depth = X;
    (X is number, try various values) into config.php in root of your installation on the server.[/edit]
