Hello to everyone
I have to bother you with my question as I cannot seem to find an answer.
I have been trying to use aliases to duplicate an html (HotPot) exercise file located in My Private Files, to create exercises with different settings, the idea being that I could update the file once and have the change shown immediately in the various places where I have deposited the aliases.
It doesn't seem to work, and I have to add again the alias for the change to be reflected.
Still working with the original alias, if I download the alias, I get the new version. But it will not be displayed by Moodle. I have thought it might be because of the browser's cache, and cleared it, but no change (it did seem to work a couple of weeks ago for another file I would be calling with an absolute URL, as I wrote in another post.)
Now, here is the strange thing: if I open my Moodle exercise link (still with the original alias) under an obsolete IE6 (I (I work with Firefox and never downloaded the new IE), it sends some error messages, but it does show the new version of my file... So I thought I was onto something, but again, IE8 on another computer will display the old version.
Is there any way to force the update of the aliased file?
Thanks for any help or explanation.
