  • Apolyton Directory download links are broken

    It looks like all downloads that have a question mark in the download link are broken.

    For example, see here:
    http://apolyton.net/dir/index.php?id...ts=6696&cat=57

    If you hover over the linked title on that page, you'll see the actual download link embedded in there: http://apolyton.net/upload/view.php?file=10252_Civ2Booklet.zip
    (note the question mark in the URL there)

    But when you then actually click on the link, you're forwarded to:
    http://apolyton.net/upload/view.php?file=10252_Civ2Booklet.zip%3f
    ... and get to see the message "File doesnt exist."

    Manually removing the %3f makes it work again.

    This happens with all download links with question marks in them (as far as I've tested). They get the %3f appended to the end of them. Note that %3f happens to be the URL encoded version of a question mark...

    Could you please fix this?

    Thanks!

    Hmmm... odd. I can certainly replicate as well as identify the problem, but have been unable to determine how to correct it. I have alerted our tech. crew to this.

      People use the directory? I've stopped a long time ago. You NEVER, EVER find what you are looking for(it's usually somewhere on the forum, in a sticky, and ALWAYS over at CFC). And if you are lucky enough to find anything, it's probably outdated or unavailable.

        It's presumably something in the PHP ... possibly related to exploit-prevention. Gramphos or I will be able to figure it out (him certainly, me perhaps if he's busy )

          Well, one thing I can say is that the question mark embedded in the link to the download link shouldn't be there. That one should be URL encoded already... But I don't know if that's what's tripping it up or not.

            Should be fixed from the directory at least.
