How do you do this? A couple times for different reasons I've wanted to change the image for a quiz and while I follow the directions, it doesn't change. Anyone help?

Once I put a image that wasn't what I thought it was, so wanted to change it. The other time my quiz was rejected said it was a "duplicate" tho that's a whole other complaint there, and totally changed the quiz to another topic, therefore the image had nothing to do with the quiz.

Thanks for any help here!

If you have already put an image on your quiz, then to change it:

Find the new image.

Upload it.

Close your browser.

Re-open your browser and go to your quiz.

The new image should be there.

(It is an issue with your browser. It thinks it already knows the image and doesn't look for the new one until you close and re-open)

You're talking to a computer illiterate here

I have the images loaded on the desktop and get them from there

So to get the new one I have to close my browser, isn't that this window where I see Sploofus? If i close it, then I have to reload it and sign in again? Is this what you mean?

Sorry to be so dense on this. But I do appreciate the help!

This is the same as putting up the first picture.

GO to 3 (Image)

Browse and find the new picture and click on it to get it in the position for adding it.

Click "add Image"

wait...then it will come up with the same old picture, like nothing changed.

Now, completely close Internet Explorer, or whatever browser you are using.

Restart you browser.

Go back to create a quiz and the picture should be changed

It may also work to hit the "refresh" button while holding down the shift key. This trick tells most browsers, including Netscape and Internet Explorer, that you want to completely refresh the page, not just check whether it's been changed, which is what the "refresh" button usually does.

Yep, sounds like a cache issue. The image HAS been changed on our file server. If using Internet Explorer, just go to the menu at the very top of your screen and select "Tools" and then "Internet Options" and click the Delete Files (also offline files) and clear your browser history. Next, click the Settings button and make sure that "Check for new versions of visited pages" is set to "Every visit".
