Ticket #1729 (closed: knowledgebase)

wrong file linked to download button

Reported by: err Owned by:
Private: no


Project is jvi. On the page http://sourceforge.net/projects/jvi/ the "Download Now!" button shows and downloads the wrong file. It is one of the "Additional files:" for the project, it should be the "Primary download file:".

In addition, with the new/better scheme (having download on the main project page does seem like a good idea), the additional files are not listed along with the information provided by the old download page; I guess I can take care of some of that with the intro text just above the new download button. But it seems like the old download page(s) should still be accessible. The jVi project had the old "Download" menu for one of three download pages. The menu item name (download page release name) was useful for directing jVi users to the correct version of jVi to plug into their target environment.

Perhaps the "View all files" button next to the "Download Now!" button could list the available download pages like the old download menu. There is still the "Files" button which takes you to the "browse files" page, so the "View all files" button is really redundant.

Additionally, the "Browse files" page, http://sourceforge.net/projects/jvi/files/ does not have a way to enable a "number of downloads" column.
