Office 2007 icons in Moodle
Our ICT teacher informed us that the icons don't appear for office 2007 based file types (given the extension changed and there is nothing in the server for it). I have seen 2 options:
- Upload the new icon sets for office 2007 and edit the necessary files to look for these
- Add entries for docx/pptx etc to copy their respective doc/ppt etc icons
Trouble is, our moodle is hosted externally and we don't have direct access to the server, so I don't know how we should go about trying either of them!
I've got the above info from this moodle forum topic.

I've had this several times.
Just browse to ....MoodleInstallationDirectory\Theme\ThemeYouAreU sing\pix\f\
then locate the appropriate icon file, copy it, paste it and rename it to whatever the shortcut wants it to be (i.e click on the dead link / red cross icon on your moodle page, choose properties and see what the file should be called)

Our county hosts the moodle so I don't even think we have ftp access (as far as I know, we just have admin access to our moodle installation, via moodle)!
Is the only way to do this by having some sort of access to the installation directory? Can we not edit/modify the necessary files/folders via moodle?

Moodle won't give you access to it's file structure no.
You'll need to get in touch with them and exaplain the problem as above with the solution I gave. If they aren't happy to give you access (which I'd fight for if I was you!) then they could follow the instructions themselves to correct the issue for you.
