 Holly Carley - student's hard copy WeBWorK 2  8/18/2004; 2:37:04 PM (reads: 1154, responses: 4) In WeBWorK 2, why is it that a student can get a hard copy of problems that are not 'visible' to them? Worse, if it is not visible and the answer date is earlier than today's date then they can get the answers. So the first priority should be to move the open date, etc., to the future. I still wonder if there is anything I can do about this. Holly <| Post or View Comments |>

I've patched the file ..... webwork2/lib/WeBWorK/ContentGenerator/Hardcopy.pm revision 1.47.2.1 if you are hooked up via the CVS you can go to ..../webwork2/lib/WeBWorK/ContentGenerator/Hardcopy.pm and type cvs update -r 1.47.2.1 Hardcopy.pm to get it. (You may be using wwcvs if you have set up anonymous access to the cvs). This will update just the one file. If you want to download the file by hand look at: The essential change was to replace @sets = grep { defined $_ } @sets;by @sets = grep { defined$_ and ( $self->{permissionLevel} > 0 or ($_->published and \$_->open_date < time) ) } @sets; in line 289. There were some other minor changes as well. Thanks for the report. <| Post or View Comments |>

This didn't seem to fix the problem. What am I missing? Permissions are set exactly as for the old version of the file. Ben Pollina <| Post or View Comments |>
