thanks Elena for your clear information.
I was wondering if things have changed any way in the past 2 years? I am using WebDav and can link/use this repository well. However, in some cases, I wish to link (from an external source) to a URL (eg a player.html or index.html which starts an Articulate or web page/site) and because I cannot find the absolute URL for the file in the repository, I have a problem. I have external linking enabled, but as you say, for file/folders - this does not help...
So I'm wondering if I have any alternative now in 2013 - except to use the old style Course-level files?
If there are any alternatives now, I would be delighted to hear thanks!
