I am frustrated trying to import my old images glossary into my new glossary with XML

Here is a workaround, there has to be an easier way but

  • Create a webfolder that you can link to. For example call it "images"
  • Add images to that folder
  • Export your XML file and edit it
  • Change the src="@@PLUGINFILE@@/ to something line src="Mydomain.edu/images/ for every entry in the file.
  • Save the XML file with a different name
  • Import that new XML file into your new glossary

Now when you use the course import feature, your glossary will work in the new course.
