Sorry if this a duplicate, but I am trying to use folders to group links of similar URLs. Do any of you have a quick answer for how to do this using the folder resource?
Hi Michelle. Just wondering why it needs to be folders - is it for aesthetic reasons? I can only really think of using the page resource. Folders are more for files and would make it difficult easily to click on the URL to access the website.
It’s possible to add url in folder? Some teacher need to have url link and files together in folder. Please advice.
Was this ever actioned in the end? I really need to be able to do this too, and can't see a reason why it wouldn't be possible. A page is too much of a 'single entity', whereas I want to link off to *different files* (= URLs) -- they just happen to be situated on other websites.
Me too. And on top of that, pages cannot be put in a folder too.
My problem is that I need to group student access to learning materials, and this is best done with folders. But I cannot put URLs in the folder, nor pages.
Have a look at the Open University's sub-page module : https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-mod_subpage and here is an old video from a couple of years back showing it in action http://www.moodleblog.net/2012/01/14/sub-page-module-yet-another-way-to-avoid-the-moodle-scroll-of-death/
To put URLs into a folder:
Create a shortcut on your desktop to the URL (Windows) - not sure if this could be done with a Mac.
(Right click on your desktop then 'add new shortcut')
Then drag and drop the shortcut into the folder.
Adding an internal Moodle page to a folder:
Presumably if one creates a shortcut to the page internal link, the one could drop that in as well.
Hope this helps, although long after the original query!
This adds a text file to the folder that does not open the link.
