Any tips on getting the file sharing site to work?

Post by kbxkbx10 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 2:36

Hi all! I'm new here, but have been lurking for some time. I'm slowly working on a port with some cool features.
I absolutely cannot get the file sharing site to work for me! Many Doomworld and ZDoom threads point to files on, and when I click on them, the resultant page shows "DOWNLOAD FILE" with a down-arrow link, a "File details" link, and a "Show more" link, none of which seem to be functional.

At the bottom, a text label states "Download Here", and "Please Wait 0 more second(s) to download", without an obvious link.

I'm using XP SP3. Here's some of the things I have tried:
* IE7: Reports "Done, but with errors on the page". 3 errors are listed on various source code lines of the HTML page. I traced these errors to Javascript lines that start with "$(document)."
* FireFox 3.5.7: Same as IE7, but without reporting the errors.
* Uninstall and reinstall of Java Runtime JRE 1.6_020.
* Cleared cache
* Tried to "find" direct links to the files
* Naviagted to the root page: This returns the following error:
"XtraUpload requires you have version 8 (or higher) of the Flash plugin installed. Click here to install the latest version of the Flash plugin."
* Followed the link and installed Flash v10.

Has anyone had the same experience? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

OMG! your the first person whos having the same problem as me, although I seem to be able to get it working on Firefox, however I mostly use IE so it is an inconvenience. I reported this error on the Zdoom forums but no one had the same problem.

Internet Explorer is *NOT* supported.

I provide little more than minor compatibility support for it, but since I did not write the file-sharing script, it's pretty much moot for me.

If it works, great, if not, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it...
