We have been using WebWork (v 2.8) at our campus for about two years now. Things have been going smoothly since the installation. Just recently, we migrated to use HTTPS/SSL. I am not sure if this is causing the issue, but that has been the only main change as of recent.
I do not work directly with WebWork, but rather am in IT and have set it up for our math department. One of the professors stopped down to show me an issue today.
He created a course 'Test'. Inside that course, he attempts to add home work sets. He goes to the library browser, picks a target set then chooses a subject. Normally, once the subject is picked, it refreshes with chapters he can choose on the next drop down. This is no longer happening. Nothing will auto-update. Instead, he has to go to 'Advanced Search' and hit 'Update Menus' every time he changes a drop down.
The other issue he is having is once he finally gets to problems he wants to add, if he clicks 'Add,' he doesn't get the normal confirmation which would typically appear in the white space across form the add button. Instead, all the way at the top of the page, it will say 'Added one problem to set xxxxx' with a green background. However, when you go look at the homework set, there are 0 problems added.
So not only are the drop down menu's not auto-refreshing, but we also cannot add problems to homework sets.
Any help is appreciated!
