When we set the templates up, the template files for the discussion and
assignment areas were missing. To that effect, we just copied the
"outline" (schedule) template over for use with the assignments,
discussions, etc. pages.
That said, I just went in and updated the "Discussions" template, making
the template tags point to "Individual" archives instead of "aily"
archives, so that the tags now read like this:
<MTEntries category="discussions" sort_order="ascend">
<p><$MTEntryDate format="%m/%d/%y"$>: <a href="<$MTEntryLink
...where archive_type had been set to "Daily". This can similarily be
done for the "Resources" template. In the case of the discussions page,
you might also consider adding an excerpt for each posting, using the tag:
More template tags are available in the documentation:
I also set the title for the discussions page to be "Course Discussions"
instead of "Course Assignments".
