I'm trying to produce a system that allows a registered user to email a link so that a prospective employer etc can see their "profile" on the moodle site. I'm fine with the Moodle certificates but my block currently allows students to upload external certificates as PDFs.
When the student views their own external certificates they can see them but giving the same URL to someone else that person cannot see the files.
For example - I can see www.moodlesite.com/pluginfile.php/2/block_cpd/attachments/0/BlankPDFFile.pdf
However when the same URL is sent to a fellow student or an employer with no Moodle access they get the error message: "Sorry, the requested file could not be found".
- Is this a permissions issue?
- Or is it an issue with the way I'm doing the file handling?
