    help with centre section in moodle

    does anyone know how to create the centre section of a moodle site front page as text only? no forums, news or category lists. I just want to have a general welcome massage. what I've found on moodle hasn't been too helpful.

    Hehe a massage is always welcome ...
    Sorry couldn't resist. The easiest way to do this may just be to create your own block with yu static text in. I created a simple block before i went away for easter, looking at it know and i haven't a clue what any of it does! Still not quite got my head around a lot of what moodle does yet.

    That's easy enough

    Admin => Site Settings => Front Page Format => Show Arbitrary HTML or activities

    You can then edit the content from the front page if logged in as an admin.

    I don't have Admin => Site Settings => Front Page Format => Show Arbitrary HTML or activities. My list contains News Items, List of Courses, List of Categories and Topics. I'm using Moodle v.1.5.3

    Does he mean go to the actual page and start removing the blocks after sticking it in edit mode?

    It seems your list is slightly different to mine, I get this (I'm also on Moodle 1.5.3):

    So you're after Topic section, then go back to the front page, turn editing on and edit away
