If there is a solution or workaround, it would be most welcome.
As an example, we have a course where we have included PDFs to official documents. Our PAGEs are full lessons, with these documents embedded at certain points, so the user can scroll through the document in the embed window, or continue on scrolling in the main window. To link to the documents, they have been uploaded in a hidden topic area in the same course (hidden but available).
When we create a new offering of the course (course copy), the embedded links don't update. This is presumably because, globally, they are not linked to the course ID but instead to the overall resource list (the 9474 below).
So, when this course is copied, the 9474 persists but a new resource is created in the new course. From the new course, a student can't see the 9474 resource because it is in the new course. I'm certain many of you are familiar with the linking issue, but I suspected that Moodle would see that it was linking to a resource within the course, and update the resource to link to the equivalent resource in the new course.
Is there a solution and still achieve the same presentation? Is there a workaround?
Thank you for your time.
