Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3932) Download page on site, links don't work when google analytics is blocked

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-3932:
---------------------------------------------

bq. How do they not work?

Left-click does not result in any observable action by the browser under these circumstances
(verified on latest Chrome and Firefox).

bq. Can you open up the browser's console and see if there are javascript errors?

Tried that. No errors in the console.

bq. Or, you could user the debugger

There's little debug output available, since the plugin (in my case, Ghostery, but could be
different in others' cases) blocks the outgoing request to Google's server.

bq. IMO, the first question to answer is whether or not we want the site to work w/o JS being
enabled.

That question is moot for this issue. The page works fine with javascript disabled. The links
will go to the mirror redirector page by default if javascript is disabled. The mirror-selection
drop-down and direct links to the selected mirror only work when javascript is enabled. This
particular issue occurs when javascript is enabled, but the outgoing request to google-analytics
is blocked.

> The links on the download page don't work with left-click if google analytics are blocked
with a plugin (like Ghostery).
> Right clicking to download with "Save as..." does still work, but that won't work if
scripts are blocked entirely. When scripts are blocked, the mirror selection is not done automatically,
and the links take you to the mirror redirector page, and not the direct downloads. So, right-click
won't work in that case, and left-click is pretty important.
> We could probably make our links a bit smarter, but I'm no JavaScript expert, so the
fix is not immediately obvious to me.
