Hi Ralph. If you are using the URL option then I think you need to have website-repositories like Flickr or Wikimedia enabled, as Helen suggests, because they are places you can "choose a link" from. If you want to display files from the repositories you mention in your post then you would select the "file" option.

Hi Mary,

Thanks.  I was able enable Wikimedia and that worked, so now I have a better understanding of that function. 

I think you are right, what I am really trying to do is use the File Resource, and I need to get my head around the whole Repository system.

What I am trying to do is upload zipped files which contain an e-book.  I also need to address the restrictions on upload file size restrictions.

Thanks for the direction.  I will keep pushing forward.

Ralph

Mary & Helen,

First, thanks for the help.  I tried using the file resouce rather then the url.  I uploaded my files (a group of files I use for the my e-book that is displayed using flash).  I succesfully use the file rescourse to find the index.hmtl file in the folider.  When I click on the file link in the classroom this is what I get:

I do have the flash player installed in the web browser (chrome).  Not sure what to make of this.

Regards,

Ralph
