Forum OpenACS Q&A: Downloading with the Download package
I use the Download package with openacs 4.6.1 to offer texts (mainly PDFs) to our students. When you hit the "submit and download" button, the browser tries to load Acrobat Reader and open the file in the browser window, but it this seems it doesnt work in all cases. Some students have trouble with that.
Is it possible to change the download page so you can start a "normal" download ("save file as") instead?
Sorry, poor knowledge ...
Maybe I'll play with the download page template and try to show the actual link to the file instead of the "submit" button.
You might also file a bug report.
Just a vote for the ability to wget files.
