#1 Postby Dellow » Sep 13, 2009 5:39 pm

Hello,

i find this problem in my site and try it in demo site and find then same .

let's talk about demo site:

when i create folder and list folders:
http://upload-pro.com/?op=my_files&fld_id=0
there will be three folders
111
sss
سامي

when i login to any folder of these
like this:
http://upload-pro.com/?op=my_files;fld_id=174
i can see the files on the folder
but when i click on public link:
http://upload-pro.com/admin/174/111
i recive the error message file not found

so users can't list the files on the public folder

why? and how to fix it?

Hello

there is another bug i think also

when someone try to download file it will generate temprory direct link , most users copy the temprory durect like and post it in forums, but when this link expired users will get error message that file not found. while it should take him to the file download page to see the banners and then generate new temp link.

how to fix this ?

You shouldnt publish direct links because: a) they're expiring b) they will work for your IP only.

You should publish links which are you seeing right after upload.

Thank you Admin, Yes you are right , but the users don't know and they copy that link and post it on forum , then users on forum reply that the file not found .

other file hosting works like this :

when someuser upload file he will get the file link like this:
http://upload-pro.com/rgsmwv0mtegl/logo.jpg.html

then some users by misstake copy this direct link :
http://www.upload-pro.com/dl/5/9no4699678ssit/logo.jpg

they think this is the link , the site should take then to download page.


i don't think this is big deal . but it is helpfull .

this has already been answered before, if this is done it will increase load on server when used with file download managers

would even crash server in some cases

i don't want it to be used to download the file, i want to just to forward the visitor to the download page . then generate temp direct link again for the new visitor.

if some user try to open this link by download manager he should recive html page with the original download url rahter than "page not found"

this:
http://www.upload-pro.com/dl/5/9no4699678ssit/logo.jpg
should forward user to this:
http://upload-pro.com/rgsmwv0mtegl/logo.jpg.html

then he can generate download link again for him self.

same thing , download manager will try multiple slots for n number of times and server wil try redirect & hence causing load issues
