create-page-no-course-1-begin-moodleBy default, Moodle 2.3 will show courses and categories on the Front page. This can be removed to display the home page as a website, instead of a list of Courses and Categories. That way, when the website is visited, the Front page will display information about the Moodle site, instead of activities a student would need to see. In this tutorial, the Categories and Courses will be removed from the Front page and replaced with HTML, images, and a table.

Creating a custom Front page

  1. Log into the Moodle Dashboard

    Important! Keep in mind that Editing must be turned on in the Settings section in order to edit any of these options.

  2. create-page-no-course-1-select.-moodleNavigate to Front page settings > Edit settings in the Settings to the Left.
  3. create-page-no-course-2-front-moodleOn the Front page settings page, Select None for the Front page and the Front page items when logged in drop boxes to remove the Categories and Courses from the Front page.

    Click Save changes.


  4. create-page-no-course-3-edit-moodleNavigate to the Home page. With editing on, the Edit summary link will display. Click the Edit Summary link.
  5. create-page-no-course-4-summary-moodleOn the Summary of Site page, the Front page can be customized with the WYSIWYG editor. HTML code can also be inserted into the Summary section with the HTML button in the WYSIWYG editor.

    Add images, text, tables, and more to customize the Front page. Once done, click Save changes.
