Remove EducationProgram "did you know" user preference
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The EducationProgram extension currently adds a user preference under the "Misc" tab:

  • Show the "Did you know box" on your courses page.

I think this user preference can probably be safely removed. Users who really don't want to see this "did you know" box can presumably hide it via per-user CSS.

A second approach would be to turn this into a hidden user preference (add a small close icon to the "did you know" box that toggles a hidden user preference). We'll just need to figure out how to un-hide the box if a user has hidden it (perhaps via a sidebar link from "Special:MyCourses").

A third approach would be to move this user preference under the "Appearance" user preferences tab.

I agree. There's no need for this to be a preference.

Tony, if you're interested, this is another easy win. :-)
