How do I un-hide (show) hidden files or folders in Resources?

If you have hidden files or folders to prevent student/member access to them, you can un-hide (show) them to allow access.  You can select multiple files or folders to show on the main Resources page, or you can edit details on a specific file or folder to show it.

Note:

  • Choosing to Show a hidden folder automatically makes available the items within it, unless those items have been individually hidden.
  • Folders that are hidden but allow access to their contents can only be shown by editing each folder's details.  See Edit Details to modify visibility of a specific file or folder.

Go to Resources.

Select the Resources tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Select the file(s) or folder(s), then Show.

  1. Check the box(es) next to the hidden file(s) or folder(s) you want to show.
  2. Select the Show button at the top of the Resources list.

Note:

Select Show to confirm.

A confirmation page listing item(s) to show will display.  Select Show to make the file(s) and/or folder(s) visible to site participants.

Note: If you show a folder, all of the files within the folder are automatically visible, unless they have been individually hidden.

Any selected items are now visible.

You will be returned to the main Resources page with the selected items visible.
