Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3932) Download page on site, links don't work when google analytics is blocked
Date Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:48:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3932?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14615381#comment-14615381

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

Sorry for the confusion. When JS is disabled, you can't right click for a different reason:
the links take you to [an html page|http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi] to select a mirror
instead of directly to the files. You'd be saving HTML and not the target file.

This would mean that your options are:

When JS is disabled:
* left-click, select mirror to download file
When JS is enabled:
* left-click to download file, or
* right-click to save-as
When JS is enabled, but google-analytics is blocked (or perhaps broken temporarily):
* right-click to save-as

This leaves no consistent way to download that works for all three situations. Left-click
should work in all cases (though, I'm fine with its behavior being slightly different in the
JS disabled case).

> 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.
