Issues after adding 'html' Output path and Completed URL

Hi there,

My experiment was working completely fine and I was ready to sync it with Prolific.
However as soon as I updated the the ‘Online’ tab in settings:

I ran into some strange issues:

  1. I get the following error

  2. it no longer shows “downloading resources” or “all resources downloaded”. Sometimes is dat conditions file and sometimes an image resource.

I tried to add these resources in ‘Additional Resources’ but that did not work

Now even if I clear the ‘Online’ settings, the issue remains. The only way to get it back working seems to be deleting from Pavlovia it and then re-syncing a previous commit from gitlab. But I need it working with Prolific.

There seems to be many related issues on the forum but I can’t find the solution.

The project is here:

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Kind regards,

Does this help?

Yes great, that works for getting it back working.

But what I need to achieve is getting it working with Prolific and therefore I cannot have the Output path/Completed URL sections blank.

Every time I add those, the resource error returns.

Why can’t you have the output path blank?

Good question.

I was simply following the documentation. In which the Output path is set to html.

Being the programming noob that I am, I just followed the page verbatim. But it turns out that’s what was causing me this issue I’ve been struggling with for the past few days.

I also followed the 3-day workshop with @Becca and @suelynnmah and we had also set this to html. Am I okay to assume I can leave it out?

I’ve just been given the job of removing html from that screenshot (which will be good practice for updating other documentation).

Ah, great.

Thanks so much for your help :slight_smile:
