We have our courses setup so that members of the same faculty can share documents fairly seamlessly using a couple of "shared" folders, which are actually symbolic links to master folders in a separate course. This works very well for the most part, but I've noticed that our linked folders are not shown (or any of their sub-folders) for selection when choosing "Display a Directory". Please see screenshots for more details.
Has anyone else come across this issue with symbolic links?
I'd really appreciate any help! Our Moodle version is 1.8.2.
Has anyone got any ideas?
