The Moodle Frontpage is the home page that all visitors will see. When setting up a Moodle site, the Frontpage can be edited to display nice HTML formatted content. By default, Moodle has no text on the frontpage summary. This tutorial will explain how to add content to the Moodle 2.3 Frontpage.

Adding content to the Moodle Frontpage

  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. edit-frontpage-summary-1-click-moodle Click the Edit Summary edit icon at the top left of the Frontpage.
  3. edit-frontpage-summary-2-site-moodleOn the Summary of site page, fill in the information for the home page content. The Use default section namebox should be unchecked in order to add the Section name.

    The Restricted access section will allow the Frontpage to be viewed during certian dates, grade conditions, or hidden entirely.

    Click Save changes.
