Re: Explanation ID

Again, we can implement the simple work-flow via "display-number" as the
matter of choice for authors and teachers... if we decide to do so. As
of today I thought all topics are displayed in a course contents
(subtopics, problem blocs, etc.) as links and thus can be reached by a
student in any order he wants. An author may imply and recommend certain
order of studying, but he could not enforce it thus far.
