I'm using Moodle 1.9.4+ (Build: 20090429).
When I try to import some multiple choices questions from the GIFT format, the first question is not imported and of course doesn't appear in the quiz.
This bug only appears when all the questions are of the same kind (for example : only multiple choice, or only true/false).
But if the first question isn't of the same kind as the others, it works...
Any idea ?
Is it possible to use the Notepad included in Windows and make it use UTF-8 ?
The questions are made in one line. (1 line for each)
The easiest way for us to help you is for you to attach your MCQ GIFT import file to your post so we can examine it.
Your GIFT test file was encoded as UTF-8(BOM), which causes problems upon importing into Moodle.
Using one of the many "advanced" text editors available on the Internet, (the excellent UniRed), I was able to a) detect your BOM encoding and save it with a new UTF-8 (non BOM). I am attaching the correct file.
It would have been easier to understand your sample file if not all the questions had been exactly the same.
PS.- For more info about that silly UTF-8(BOM) problem, see Problems with Swedes: Uploading users via text/csv and also Display problems caused by the UTF-8 BOM
the file you attached uses "END OF LINE" Windows format.
it should not.
do you use Notepad++ ? it has UNIX file format feature as well as UNICODE (UTF-8) encoding. both, are needed to be set if you are uploading text files into Moodle.
i am attaching a working example.
btw, your GIFT format is fine. as far as i can tell (tested on Moodle 1.9.4)
I'll give a feeback soon.
Thanks a lot !
