Administration Features 
    
Filters: Moodle has a number of special filters (Fig. 71) built in which an admin can enable, including: 
Glossary Auto linking: When active will create a hypertext 
link within a course activity created with  the  HTML  editor             
(e.g. Assignment, Forum, Quiz, Lesson etc.), that will display 
an associated glossary entry in a pop up window. 
Resource/Activity/Wiki Names Auto linking: When active 
will  create  a  hypertext  link  within  a  course  to  resources,             
activities, and wiki entries with this value. 
Algebra/TeX notation: When active allows math expressions 
to be entered in the HTML editor, when surrounded by special 
charters (e.g. $$   see page 36).

Multimedia Plugins: When active media resources like Flash, 
MP3, Windows Media and QuickTime files will embed their 
players within an activity created with the HTML editor (see page 15). 
Word Censorship: Moodle allows an admin to censor inappropriate words that students might use in 
forums mostly, when this filter is active. A few basic words are included in the filter by default, and the 
admin can add to this list by simply editing the filter.php file located in the /filter/censor folder of your 
Moodle installation. This file can be opened and appended in any text editor (Notepad, etc.). 
Multi Language Content: This filter looks for  tags in your HTML which indicate that a text  
contains multiple languages. It then selects and outputs the best language for the current user. 
Email Protection: When active, your Moodle site is protected against spam bots and webcrawlers 
that search out e mail addresses for harvesting. This includes such services as Google, Yahoo etc.  
    
Backup: Moodle can be set to 
automate 
site wide 
backups        
(Fig. 72) using this property. It is 
important for the admin to set a 
schedule of nightly backups for 
Moodle, and to encourage their 
teachers and course creators to 
perform backups of their courses 
(see page 42).  Select the items 
you wish to backup (defaults), 
and choose Yes from the Active 
drop down list. Next, click the 
days you want Moodle to perform 
backups, and an Execute at: 
time. By default your backups will 
be stored in the moodledata 
folder 1 backupdata directory.

Click Save changes when you 
have set properties to your liking. 
    
Editor Settings: These properties allow you to control some features that are available within Moodle's 
built in HTML editor. For example, you can add more fonts to the default list that appears, and if Aspell is 
installed on the server you can enable the spelling dictionary. 
Users 
    
Authentication: By default, Moodle creates a 
New Account
 on the site using  Email based authentication , 
unique for each student user (Fig. 73). This means that users will create their own accounts and will be sent 
an e mail message that contains a link back to the site, which completes  the  authentication  process.                    
On subsequent visits the user will just Login at the site prompt.
