Files not uploading

I'm trying to upload H5P files I created on PressBooks to the H5P website, but when I try to upload, the file never loads even though it says upload. I'm using Chrome.

Hi soueid,

Prior to me answering, just a suggestion when posting in forums to provide as much information as possible. Luckily I read your initial post before you edited it.

To summarize your issue you uploading into contents that you created in PressBook/Wordpress. This is so that you can embed them into Canvas. But it keeps loading and never stops, you also tried saving it prior to finishing the loading and you do not see your contents.

  1. First is a test site and we do not suggest using it to host "real" contents. The site have very limited resources and we cannot guarantee 100% uptime.
  2. It is possible that the content you are uploading is beyond the limit of the site which is 16MB.

What you can do:

  1. The plugin for Wordpress already have the option to embed H5Ps so you should be able to embed from PressBook/Wordpress to Canvas.
  2. You can opt to use if you don't want to host the contents yourself. Not only does it provide hosting and embed features, also have a seamless integration with Canvas through LTI 1.1 or LTI 1.3.

I've had all kinds of issues with integrating WordPress H5P activities into Canvas. I'll give a try. Thanks!
