      Description

      Issue: Every time you upload a file to Resources via the elFinder, TWO automatic email notifications containing links to the newly uploaded file are sent to the entire site. There's no way to turn off these notifications.

      Solution: elfinder should NEVER invoke a notification.

      If you create a folder in Resources set to Hide this folder but allow access to its contents, and upload a file to it via elFinder, students can access the file via these links. This is a problem because the feature Hide this folder but allow access to its contents should be able to be used to store content (e.g. images) that an instructor embeds in an exam. Students should NOT have access to anything in a hidden folder that allows access to its contents other than by a link to an item in that folder which the instructor provides to the students.

      To reproduce:

      (First 5 steps are to demonstrate why this is an issue for a hidden folder)

      1. In a site with at least one student added, go to Resources, and select Actions > Create folders.
      2. Enter a Folder Name and click Add details for this item.
      3. Select the option Hide this folder but allow access to its contents.
      4. Click Create folders now.
      5. The folder should display as grayed out in the Resources list.
      6. Go to Samigo (or see below for an alternative)
      7. Either Edit an existing assessment OR under Create from Scratch, enter an Assessment Title and click Create.
      8. From the Insert New Question drop-down, select any type of question.
      9. Click the Show Rich-Text Editor (and character count) link above the Question Text box.
      10. Click the Image icon to add an image, then click Browse Server.
      11. Select the hidden folder you added. Click the Upload button and upload your file.
      12. Click OK and you'll see your lovely (not yet fully created) question with the image.
      13. Check the student's email box. Much to the instructor's dismay (if they knew), the student has received TWO emails with links to the image the instructor just put in the quiz question. The student can access the image via the links.

      If you dont use SAMIGO

      1. Go to Resources and create HTML page
      2. opt to insert an image
      3. select 'Browse Server'
      4. opt to upload a file: Click the Upload button and upload your file.
      5. Click OK, return to the HTML page
      6. Check the student's email box. Much to the instructor's dismay (if they knew), the student has received TWO emails about the new file
