|Summary||14320: Copying survey does not copy images from description / text fields|
Copying survey does not copy images in the description field and keeps the source code which will display a placeholder.
<p><img alt="" src="/surveys/upload/surveys/123456/images/SurveyWelcomeImage.png" /></p>
|Steps To Reproduce|
Copy a survey that contains an image in the description or probably any text fields.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Complete LimeSurvey version number (& build)||3.15.1+181017|
|I will donate to the project if issue is resolved||No|
|Database & DB-Version||MySQL|
|Server OS (if known)|
|Webserver software & version (if known)|
It was never the case, like export/import or export lsa.
I just tried to copy survey, it works as expected.
Please click on "Source" button on text editor.
If you have a survey with survey id at 1234 with image source
New survey is is 4321, new image source was
But image was not copied :) in the new survey directory.
@markusd1984 : if you set Convert resource links and expression fields? to off it was not the case when copying : url stay same.
just as DenisChenu mentioned
Copying the resources over for the new survey is crucial to avoid conflicts when changing content, ie. otherwise when disabling "Convert resource links and expression fields?" and deleting the image in the original survey it will become unavailable in the copies!
The only reason practically I can think of why i would want to disable it is if I want to duplicate a survey ie. to create different versions/alternatives with the aim of deleting the original/some of the copies to work with one of them as the final master.
But NOT for using it as a means of templates to create a new survey, which is why I'm mainly using it for since there is no build in function for this yet and otherwise requires users to import files. (see feature suggestion https://bugs.limesurvey.org/view.php?id=14329)

we now have a parameter to use a single upload directory for all surveys. That's a way to fix the problem.
