I have some random html, CSS, JS, video files, etc that somebody has used to build a static 'website' consisting of multiple pages, links, and so on.
We would like this to be served from our Moodle 2 behaving as a basic (rather slow) webserver, i.e. students can click a link to the html and it appears in their browser (with no Moodle navigation or anything like that - just like if they had the html file on their hard disk and double-clicked it).
In Moodle 1.9 you could upload the files to the Files area of the website and then link to it. Pretty crappy but it worked.
In Moodle 2 I thought I could use the Folder tool, upload these files to it, and then link to it. Well, I can put the files into the Folder (one at a time) but cannot link to an html file in there to view it, it always downloads (even if I manually remove the forcedownload=1 from the URL).
IMS Content Package would work and it is definitely helpful to be able to upload an entire zip of files at once EXCEPT that in this case we need to be able to add the videos separately because they will total more than 105MB.
I'm sure this must be an FAQ - if so, could somebody point me to the relevant documentation (I couldn't find anything about Folder on moodle docs) or previous discussion, please? Otherwise what's the best approach?
I don't particularly want to do development just for this, I guess I could if I have to.
A backup plan is for the people who want these to stick their 'website' on some other random web server, meaning that it won't be properly supported and will probably be overrun by hackers, viruses, etc...
