Resources tab dropdown not showing

Feb 03, 2017

Someone who is testing one of my courses has complained that when he clicks on the Resources tab, the dropdown menu does not appear. Instead, two up and down scroll arrows appear beside the word "Resources" and he has to click down to see the menu items-- and they only appear in the tiny space where the word "Resources" used to be.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Hello Adrienne - I have seen this behavior reported when a user is viewing the HTML5 output in an unsupported browser. You can check out our full documentation here and I'm included supported HTML5 options below:

  • Windows: Google Chrome (latest version)
  • Mac: Safari 7 and later, Google Chrome (latest version)
  • Mobile: Safari in Apple iOS 7 and later, Google Chrome (latest version) in Android OS 4.1 and later

While this post is a few months old, I was hoping I might be able to get some help too. I recently starting experiencing some issues with published courses regarding resources as well. It seems that the resources are appearing when using Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Explorer as browsers but they are not working in Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. I tested on a PC and MacBook Air. Any tips or ideas?

Hi Alyssa,

Thanks for responding. I appreciate your help! We are using Storyline 3. We publish to LMS with the Format set to Flash with HTML5 fallback. The zipped output is housed by our LMS provider, so I'm not sure of the details on that. After researching further, we've learned that this is now happening in all courses published, not just the most recent one so we are unsure of the cause. Our LMS provider has said that this is affecting all player tabs and not just Resources.

Thanks again!

Thanks for those details, Jenna. It's worth testing the file in another LMS environment, for comparison's sake. SCORM Cloud is a good option--it's industry standard, and it's free! 

I'd be happy to help with that testing. Simply attach your file here, and I'll do the rest. If you'd like to keep it private, use this form instead.

I'm not sure if Jenna is still subscribed to this discussion, but you could always use the Contact Me button on an ELH users' profile to reach out to them directly. Also, what LMS are you using? Hopefully, folks using the same platform can point you in the right direction! 🤞

Best of luck, and we're here if you need anything!
