I am REALLY new and not very technical (but trying!). I've created a page in Dreamweaver, using a downloaded template. I've viewed the page in a couple browsers, and it looks fine. When I upload the file into my Moodle course, all that is there is the text...no nice banners or anything. What am I missing? Please help!
The file you are talking about, is that an HTML file? I'm guessing you uploaded the HTML file but did not upload any of the images, banners, etc. to Moodle as well.
Thanks, Marty. I'm not going to try to figure out which files I also need to upload. I had downloaded a template, and there's TONS of stuff in the folder. So much to learn....
All of that stuff needs to be uploaded. Think of the file you uploaded as the coach of a team and all those other files as the players and sports equipment. If you only brought the coach to a game, he/she would be barking orders but there would be no players there to execute those orders.
Specifically if you had an image in your Dreamweaver version of the code, it was pointing at the local image file stored on your computer. Then when you copied your code into Moodle, it was still pointing to that filepath on your computer but that image file was not in Moodle.
So to make it work, you can create a ZIP file of your entire project and then upload that to Moodle so that all the pieces are then in Moodle for your code to point at.
