    Moodle 'Save as'

    Anyone know how to get moodle/browser to save documents?

    when in browser right clicking on an uploaded document only lets me download a view.html file that links to the file

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-frameset.dtd">
    <html dir="ltr">
    <head><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /><title>9A-IN4: Assignment One</title></head>
    <frameset rows="130,*"><frame src="view.php?id=461&amp;type=file&amp;frameset=top" /><frame src="http://vle.example.com/file.php/1559/Year_9/Assignment_One.pdf" /></frameset></html>
    I want the students to be able to right click and save the file as IE seems to be broken and can;t handle it if teachers upload too large files,

    TIA

    Re: Moodle 'Save as'

    I found some solutions:

    1) change IE
    2)
    Try using the forcedownload parameter. I have used this with mp3's successfully. After you choose the file to link to, add "?forcedownload=1" to the end of the link. It would look something like:

    http://yoursite.com/file.php/2/filen...orcedownload=1

    This parameter can be very handy.
