Moodle 4.0 allows site admin to group courses into categories. A typical Moodle course category’s URL uses the following format: (the number at the end of the URL corresponds to the course category’s id)

In our latest premium Moodle theme Edutor, there is a frontpage categories section where the site admin can add and configure up to 20 category blocks and link them to the existing course categories. It’s the perfect section to showcase and provide quick links to your top course categories.


To configure the section you need to go to: Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Edutor > Frontpage Categories

Basic Settings

You can add a section title and a call-to-action button at the end of the section.



Category Blocks
