Hi Julie,

If you login to the management page at http://XERTESITE/management.php (replace XERTESITE with your URL) then you can change the base URL there.

Subject: [Xerte] External access

I have only just recently found out that learners cannot access the Xerte XOT learning objects when logging into Moodle from home. I have the settings set to public and have added the weblink in the appropriate place on Moodle but as soon as the link is clicked on by the user, the path changes to Xerte.oldham.ac.uk instead of Moodle.oldham.ac.uk. Is there a further setting I need to change as this course is about to go completely online and is obviously no use if not accessible? (I have just tried embedding the iFrame code but noticed the same path – Xerte…so am doubtful that will work either)
Any hints please?


Kind Regards,
Julie Harding
