Moodle filters – auto linking course activities

Here’s a quick brain dump post on a feature of Moodle that I had overlooked.

When the Auto-link activities filter is activated, you don’t have to use absolute links in a book or page on the Moodle course to link to an activity. You just need to type in the activity name verbatim and it will create a relative link.  Beautiful for when you restore a course and don’t want to make substantial changes.
