Thanks so much for your response.
I'm positively sure that the files are in the server. What puzzles me is why Moodle is creating a temporary file, Here is what I do:
- write the text for the link
- Select the text
- click on the button "select/edit link" and the window to select the link appears
- click on the icon "browse"
- click on the menu option "upload file"
- select the file from my computer
- click on the button "upload this file"
And then the url appears in the "insert/edit link" window:
(if I include http:// in the url I wrote in the previous line, then I can see in this very message the Stridor.mp4 file. Isn't this ironic? You can try it in your computer and see if this also happens).
Unfortunately, in the previous message I sent an example with the only file in the activity that has a space in its name. None of the rest have it.
If I click on the button "manage embedded files" I can see all the files embedded in the activity. Unluckily, I can't see the path to the files. When I right click on any of them I see this window:
By the way, when uploading this image, I noticed that the Moodle we are using for this forum, also creates a draft file url:
Is it going to change after closing the editor?
My site never has had a domain name. I need to make an annoing paperwork in my University, so the students have to use the ip address,, and can be accessed from everywhere (check it in your browser). But if you think assignining a domain name can help, I will do it.
I can check in the server where the files are located, just tell me the name of the folder where Moodle keeps all the embedded files. Also, can you tell me what I need to do to have the url to the permanent file?
Thank you so much for your patience and hope we can solve the problem.
