As IPS Beyond used to have its own download manager, all the files that were there got added to the resources site. I noticed earlier that if you click a link to an old IPS Beyond hosted download, you get taken to the resources site but almost 100% of the time, you are shown a 404 Not Found error.
It appears to do this because the URL you get redirected to at the resources site is incorrect. For example, take this URL (saw it in a signature here):
That will redirect users to the following, which is incorrect:
The resources site doesn't use automodule, it uses appcomponent. If you replace the automodule part of the URL with appcomponant then you are immediately taken to the correct file:
I just noticed this and thought that maybe it should be looked into to help people to locate the things they have links to back at the old IPS Beyond site...
I think its a .htaccess file which redirects IPSB to IPSR, but I suppose legacy links could be added.
Actually, we had support in the htaccess for the autocom links, but not the automodule links. Fixed. :)
I'm assuming the problem was that you just didn't know about the problem?
Exactly. ;) Like I said, it supported the old autocom=downloads links, but not automodule. Easy fix (now that it was pointed out).
