Testing the download behavior for val, vit, txt, and pdf files

susan.vit (6.1 KB)
EasyTeeShirt.val (22.0 KB)
Easy_Tee_Shirt_instructions.pdf (712.4 KB)
test.txt (25 Bytes) (25 Bytes)

I just tried clicking on them all. pdf and txt were handled appropriately. .vit and .val appear to be treated as txt


#3

Still not working right.
The .txt file should be downloaded, should NOT open in a browser tab.
Same for the .vit and .val files.

I thought that’s what Right Mouse -> Save link as… is for? :slight_smile:

Anyhow… the links lack the download in the href tag. ? Interesting… I added the option below and it gets stripped out by the server ???

test.txt

This is what I attached…

And it doesn’t even open the file in a NEW browser tab! It opens in the forum tab, so you have to “arrow” back to this page!!! It’s not doing something right…


#6

It opens in a new tab for me… I’m using Chrome.


#7

(Is it my imagination, or is there no place in this forum that says what software is running it?)


#8

You’re correct. I’m starting a thread on this, to document the admin info, in case I get hit by the banana truck.

Download bvehaviour This is typically a result of the .extension_name not being present in the mime.types file on the host server or a .htaccess file/some such similar override

I think it should be something like
application/valentina+xml val application/tape+xml vit

Thanks @bamba, I’ll look into this!
