<div>So, I need to always check the Blocking this link if false. OK, I can =
deal with that.<br><br>Do I only get one statement? For example, does the f=
ollowing work?<br><br>$a =3D 2;<br>$b =3D 4;<br>$a gt $b<br><br>For just ch=
ecking &amp;EXT values I imagine a single (perhaps complicated) expression =
should be fine, but I can imagine wanting to do some logic first.<br><br>An=
d, where is Problem Grades? I'm sorry, I know I saw this once before, but I=
 can't find it anywhere. I have looked in "Modify user grades for this reso=
urce", but it seems to want an actual student. I looked around in problem p=
arameters with no luck; I don't see anything in the Main Menu that sounds r=

&nbsp;<br>&gt; from the course and re-add it as a new resource. How do I cl=
