(Re-sending this, as it doesn't seem to have appeared.)
For a wiki that I administer, I have direct downloads turned off,
for security reasons, to ensure that only authorized users can
access the wiki and download files.
This means that the download links are like this:
This works fine if someone clicks on the link, one gets the file and it
downloads as the correct file name and all that.
However, if someone does a right-click "Save as" then the file name
that they get is "Releases.htm" rather than the actual filename.
This is understandable, since the URL before the QUERY_STRING is
However this is really confusing and annoying to our users.
Is there some way of making the non-direct download have a nicer URL,
so that right-click Save-as will work?
Maybe something like the following:
But I don't know if this is possible, or how to make PmWiki do that.
Yes, if I enabled direct download, that wouldn't be a problem, but
direct download is *not* an option.
