Centralised User Profiles

From Joomdle
Jump to: navigation, search

Joomdle allows for the centralisation of the user's profile data ensuring consistency of information between Joomla / Moodle extensions. With Joomla 1.5x, only the user name and password can be managed by the users themselves. Thus Joomdle leverages third party Joomla extensions to allow users to enter / change their personal details. Currently, these extensions include:

  • Virtuemart
  • Jomsocial
  • Tienda
  • Community Builder

The figure below shows the list of user fields that are centrally managed. You may configure Moodle to lock one or more of these fields.

To configure Moodle to disable users from editing their profile details directly in Moodle refer to Installing Joomdle in Moodle

What if Virtuemart or Jomsocial is not installed on my Joomla site? In the future additional third party extensions that support user profile management will be integrated. However, if you prefer to manage the user's profile through Moodle, then ensure that the fields listed above are not locked.
