That's weird. The check boxes should retain the value you set.
> However, Moodle still thinks the dates are disabled.
That doesn't seem weird to me, because unchecking the boxes means you are disabling the dates (remember the boxes are enable boxes)
I experimented with the check box settings on my Moodle 1.8.2 site and the checkbox setting was correctly remembered from after clicking "Save changes" on the "Editing a Hot Potatoes quiz" page, and to the next time I visited the page.
Would it be possible for me to come and look at your site? Please could you set me up as a teacher on the course you are having trouble with and email the access details to me at : gordon at-sign kanazawa hyphen gu dot ac dot jp
Alterntively, please could you log into my Moodle 1.8 server, and check whether the checkboxes behave as expected in your browser. Here are the access details:
- URL: http://bateson.kanazawa-gu.ac.jp/moodle/18/ms/
- Course: Course Fullname 101
