Moodle FAQ

The following is a list of commonly asked Moodle questions. For other inquiries not found on this list, please contact the ITS Help Desk at (603) 535-2929, via email at, or visit them at the Lamson Library front desk.


Why did the spell check feature disappear?

Google has stopped providing service to its spell checking service, so Moodle developers have removed the icon to avoid any confusion. To replace this feature, users will now rely on their browser's built-in spell check capabilities to check for spelling (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.). Next time you see a red squiggly line indicating a misspelled word, hold down the Ctrl key and right-click on the word (Mac users will press the command key). Your browser should provide a list of alternative spellings to choose from.


Why do I receive an error each time I try to paste something?

Moodle's text editor does not allow for pasting items via right-clicking. However, if you use common keyboard shortcuts, you can still paste items:

  • PC users: Hold down the Ctrl key and press V
  • Mac users: Hold down the command key and press V


How do I change my default Forum tracking and Forum auto-subscribe settings?

There are a number of options within your Moodle profile that you may find interesting. Settings such as Forum tracking, or displaying any unread messages, and Forum auto-subscribe, changing the default behavior of forum posts, are the most popular questions folks ask about.
