Download button doesn't initiate a download the first time
« on: November 23, 2018, 09:19:27 pm »
First of all, sorry about the formatting but the WYSIWYG editor is stripping my carriage returns for some reason. I'll try typing html carriage returns in to fix it.

Download button doesn't initiate a download the first time.

I just downloaded and installed 5.0beta, filename DownloadsPro5.0beta.zip

Unrelated to this bug report, it says the following in the Settings area:

Your Version: 5.0beta Latest Version: 4.1.11 Your downloads system version is not up to date!

Now, on to the bug...

I believe this also happened with the previous version 4.1.11

I have it set to Show Download Link in the Category Display Settings. But I have noticed that the first time a user clicks on the download button it doesn't download but enters the file properties as if they clicked on the filename. All subsequent clicks of the Download button in the Category Display initiates an immediate download as it should.

After the user logs out and back in the behavior repeats.

Edit: Apparently just the preview stripped carriage returns and the final message displayed all of my "br" html tags. Edited and removed.

I can't make it happen here on your site. But it happens on mine with latest FireFox and IE.

Also happens with 4.1.11 after a downgrade due to errors in the log after the 5.0 beta. (Will post that on another thread)
