Yes, I am aware that Howard is a "Particularly Helpful Moodler". To be honest Howard, I thought exactly that when you came back to me so quickly yesterday. I am extremely pressed for time (being an eLearning department of one, without any technical team) which was the main reason for the brevity of my question. However, I got the distinct feeling that you replied to my question above without taking time to think about what I was querying and I'm sorry to say that, yes, your reply does come across as terse and implies that I haven't got a clue as to what I'm doing. Yes, I should probably have been clearer in what I was trying to say but why not simply say "I'm not sure what you mean." instead of "Unlimited questions option? What unlimited question option? I'm unsure what you are doing." One thing, Howard, that I would certainly never have done is called you a prat.
Here is the drop down box that I am referring to on the 'Add a Quiz' page:
Here is what is bothering me:
Other than the unlimited option, the number of questions per page that it allows goes up to fifty. I have mine set to 'Unlimited'. When I try to import 87 Moodle XML questions from a quiz that was created on my 1.5.3 production server, it will only allow me to upload 49 questions. I am aware that this particular option should not have any effect on the importation of questions but this is happening on both my Windows Test Server and my current Linux production server (with completely different quizzes that are also over 50 questions), both running Moodle 1.7. I find it strange that, in every case, it is limiting me to an importation of 49 questions and am wondering if it has some connection to the "Questions per page" option.
Or is it simply an incompatibility with questions imported from 1.5.3?
