If you want to ask a question, you would do better posting in an appropriate forum, e.g. Blocks should be backed up and restored.

Thank you for your comment, Tim. Actually, it is not appropriate to post this in forums for a few reasons. Right now, we need this following line added in the Backup and Restore FAQ:

"Standard blocks usually are backed up except for HTML blocks (you must copy them manually to the new course)."

I read through all of Backup and Restore Docs and found no mention of this. So I think this would go well in Section 5: What is not contained in Backup. Best regards, --Don Hinkelman 02:08, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

I am pretty sure you are wrong - I remember fixing a bug where any URLs in HTML blocks were not rewritten when restoring to a different site. I can't think why it would be inappropriate to post something in the forums if it is OK to post here. If you are unsure about something, post in the forum to learn the answer, then add definitive information to the docs. I don't see how adding speculation to the docs helps anyone?--Tim Hunt 03:27, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I was wrong. Very sorry about that. The reason posting in forums is not always useful is because they are often ignored. See: Second, I was sooo sure, that my information was definitive. I had three people telling me that for over a year. I try to encourage users to post questions or subtitles of sections in the Docs pages I am responsible for. It really helps me understand what is missing from them. Cheers, --Don Hinkelman 09:04, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
