hia, maybe not a bug but the front page for public tests in 1.6.2 cannot be linked to unless the user has the AtutorID session cookie set. see:

www2.helsekompetanse.no/atutor/125/tests_surveys/270/ - if the cookie isn't set this redirects to the course front page.

these two work fine without the cookie:

www2.helsekompetanse.no/atutor/125/tools/take_test/tid/270/ (first question in the same test)

www2.helsekompetanse.no/atutor/mpw1/content/2385/ (a different content page)

This is however a part of a bigger issue with the unique URLs, as they seem to be dependent on cookies some way or another. you can see this in different ways:

Google does not index public Atutor pages:
www.google.no/search?hl=no&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-GB%3Aofficial&hs=yBE&q=site%3A+www2.helsekompetanse.no&btnG=S%C3%B8k&meta=

the W3C validator cannot validate them:
validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww2.helsekompetanse.no%2Fatutor%2F125%2F

and if you disable cookies in the browser, Firefox will give you:

Redirect Loop

Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked.

The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

* Have you disabled or blocked cookies required by this site?

* NOTE: If accepting the site's cookies does not resolve the problem, it is probably a server configuration issue and not your computer.

looks like you have fixed this: www.atutor.ca/atutor/mantis/view.php?id=3696 - in which case, cool! smile

but will there be a patch that fixes this in the current version, or can you describe what I need to do to make this work?

Hello Vegard,

Yes, I will make a patch for it. I am going to test it a bit more before making the patch though, just incase I missed a few testcases.
