Parser Warning

Nov 19, 2013

On a regular review of a course, I made one change to a module (edited the title on the player), published and zipped it through Storyline publish function.  When I SCORM tested it, I got the Parser warning "The Sequencing Control Mode 'Flow' was detected on a leaf node, but is only applicable to cluster nodes." and it won't move the course to completion.  How on earth could editing a title on a player cause that change?  Because I did nothing else, honest!

This has been bothering me so I followed up with Rustici (makers of SCORM) and they provided a solution.

You must open the imsmanifest.xml file and change line 25:

Find this:

<imsss:controlMode choice="true" flow="true"/>

and change to this:

<imsss:controlMode choice="true" flow="false"/>

I have opened a support ticket because this needs to be fixed by you guys so users don't have to do it manually!

Best wishes,
