    Strange Moodle problem - Teachers cannot add resources or activities to new courses.

    This is strange.

    Over the last few days we have noticed that teachers cannot add resources or activities to newly created courses. They do not see the 2 drop down boxes at the bottom of each section. They do see these drop downs in courses that were created previously

    Admins are unaffected. Other teacher editing rights within a course are uneffected.

    Nothing has changed recently on the Moodle server.

    Moodle 1.9.9+ (Build: 20100707)

    Thanks

    Do they definitely have the role of teacher within the new course? Are any role override permissions in place on the new courses?

    If you're connected to Darren who posted on moodle.org then as I said to him, happy to take a look if you want to DM me a login - can't promise anything but sometimes 2 heads are better than one and if I can't see anything obvious then at least it will rule out edited permissions etc within Moodle.

    Yes, Darren and I have fixed it:

    "Phew. I've fixed it. I got the mdl_courses table and went through it looking for differences and found something like restrict modules was set to 1 in new courses. Changing this to 0 fixed everything!

    I found the setting in admin and changed it back to 'no courses'. It turns out somebody was trying to restrict access to the chat module but either selected everything or nothing.

    Hope this helps anybody searching in the future.
    "
