Hi. I am in the process of rebuilding my very old Moodle site to a fresh 2.2 installation and am trying to "do it right" with the file repositories (I still don't like the way it works, but I'm trying to learn to love it).
My host (a Moodle Partner) set up a fileserver repository (in moodledata) for me to FTP my zipped course backups...and restore from there. Seeing that folder in the file picker inspired me, so I created my own repository for site-common files.
My problem: As soon as I did that, the first folder (with the course backups) disappeared from the file picker:
If I delete the Zebra repository (from site admin>manage repositories), the original one (Uploads) reappears in the file picker:
Here is how it is set up:
I added a THIRD repository, went to the file picker from "restore", "insert image", and "insert media"...now only this last repository shows in the file picker. It seems as though the last one I've added in is the only one available even though the "manage repositories" settings indicate "3 site-wide common instances".
Thanks in advance for ideas...Penny
That is definitely a bug you've found there (I can step through the code and see exactly where it is going wrong).
I'm going to see if I can put together a fix - in the meantime you can follow the issue here: http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-31541
Thanks, Davo! You are the BEST!
I have noticed the same issue.
they are enabled:
only one repository shows up in the file picker.
I'll be watching this issue closely; I may have to roll back to an earlier version because of this, but I REALLY don't wanna...
I can confirm this is fixed in March 1, 2012 build. I experienced the same problem back in February. But now it's working.
