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.
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.
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.
