 Bill Ziemer - strange behavior  9/23/2001; 1:55:17 PM (reads: 1264, responses: 3) Problem set4 runs fine on the private course, tar it to the public course, build the set as usual, choose the problem set and welcomeAction.pl only displays the top line. (logo, Problem Set 4 from ma112 for Bill Ziemer, problem set button) Going in as other students, the problems are built and scoring, but inaccessible through welcomeAction.pl. Deleting the set and rebuilding didn't fix it. However, copy the set4.def file to set44.def, build set44 and all is fine with set44! (rm set4.def, and cp set44.def set4.def, build set4, still no display of problems in welcomeAction.pl) Any ideas? <| Post or View Comments |>

 Bill Ziemer - Re: strange behavior  9/24/2001; 11:14:36 AM (reads: 1480, responses: 0) Except that set44.def is a copy of set4.def (cp set4.def set44.def). It seems there is some reference to set4 that lingers after "Delete Problem Set" is done, I don't know how else to explain it. <| Post or View Comments |>

Another possibility is that this is a problem with latex2html cached images. "Delete Problem Set" deletes all cached images, but maybe if this wasn't run (which contradicts what is implied by the above message) or if permissions were such that this failed (which would be very unusual), then maybe some bad cached images of the screenHeader verbiage are present. This would cause a problem (assuming $htmlModeDefault= 'Latex2HTML';) when trying to view the list of problems. Try two things. The easist would be to go to where the cached images are kept and remove all screenHeader files rm -r (tmpDirectory)/l2h/set4/screenHeader-* (be very careful). The other thing would be to edit your webworkCourse.ph file temporarily changing$htmlModeDefault= 'Latex2HTML'; to \$htmlModeDefault= 'HTML';) If the latter works, the solution is to do the former and change webworkCourse.ph back to the original setting. <| Post or View Comments |>
