[BUG] Unable to download without 'www' appended

Postby Jacky » 06 Sep 2009, 20:34

I was downloading some stuff at the NFS4 utilities section.

I find that if I have accessed the page as "nfsunlimited.net" instead of "www.nfsunlimited.net", clicking on the download link will redirect me back to the front page.

From what I understand this is a direct linking protection so that the links cannot be accessed outside NFSUnlimited.net, but I suppose Bojan forgotten that with or without the 'www' actually does make a difference to the rules (when it comes to coding). ;)

If this is Greek to you, never mind, here comes the example.

Go to http://nfsunlimited.net/files/view/68 and try to download the file.

Now go to http://www.nfsunlimited.net/files/view/68 (noticed now there is the 'www' appended) and download.

I'm actually able to download from both the URL's you provided. Notice that the download URL link and the website URL linking to the utility are both different links. Regardless of the 'www', you'll still be brought over to the same page.

Should all else fail, use a different browser perhaps? I'm on Safari.

A moment ago I checked and yes I am able to download from both links.

Either there were technical difficulties yesterday or it was fixed, because it didn't happen to one utility, but two.

If you accessed that page without the 'www', the download link would also be without the 'www'. Vice-versa if you accessed the page with 'www'.
