I expect I am missiong something obvious but...
We are using Moodle V1.4.3+. I downloaded the hotpot.zip file. Unpacked it (BTW, Enzip couldn't seem to open it - I had to use the WindowsXP unzipper) and looked at the README.TXT contained therein.
After copying the folder to the moodle box, I came to step 3:
3. copy and set up the file icons
[This step is not required for Moodle 1.5 and later, and is optional for Moodle 1.1 to 1.4]
(a) copy the files in the "mod/hotpot/pix/f" folder on your Moodle site to "moodle/pix/f"
So, first off, why is the step optional? what happens if I try to skip it?
Secondly, there is no folder hotpot/pix in the unpacked stuff. Nor in fact are there many of the other folders mentioned.
When I log in to my moodle system, there is no trace of anything to do with hotpot. I do not see it in the admin|config|modules screen and I cannot add anything to a course.
What do I need to do (other than get more sleep)
