Wiki downloading files
« on: November 10, 2011, 10:55:08 am »

About 20% of the time when I use the wiki, it goes through times when everytime I try to go to the wiki or just click on a link to another page of the wiki, it'll attempt to dowload a file of the page instead of actually going to the page. Why in the world is this happening? It's just for the wiki, no other sites.

Some examples of the files:

Digging_deeper.gz
download.gz.crdownload
40d-Magma.gz.crdownload
index.php
Farming.gz.crdownload
etc.

Basically whatever page it is. I haven't opened them or anything, I cancel them every time. It's getting really annoying.

That incident was really what clued me in to the depth this game can offer, though that one time I made a fort of 150 dwarves suspended over a gorge and cut it all loose was pretty fun too.

Old versions of Google Chrome are known to not work correctly with MediaWiki 1.17.0 - if you're not using the latest version, then upgrade.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

I am using Chrome, but I just checked for updates and there are none.

It's happening with Firefox, as well.  Don't tell me we're going to have to use IE to view the wiki *shudder*

I'm looking into this, no solution yet but we will find one.  Sorry about the issues. :(

Do any of you people have Avast antivirus?

Apparently Avast Antivirus is actually the culprit here, not your browser.  A bit crazy, I know.

I have avast, and I've never had any issues with the wiki. Then again, I haven't checked recently. I'll go do so now.

EDIT: Yeah, nothin. Visited about ten seperate pages through the random page link, and a few pages by search engine and nothing.

Well it doesn't happen too often, just every once in a while. And it'll do it for a few minutes when you're trying to figure something out, which is pretty annoying.

Edit: I'm assuming it has something to do with the site advisor, right? Maybe there's a way I can exclude it from checking the wiki. That might solve the problem.

Just tried it today with Chrome.  Not fixed.

What I always do is just spam click the link/press esc key until it breaks through, and the page loads properly.  I suppose with everything else about Dwarf Fortress being about menu meta-grinding, it would only make sense that the wiki would require you to grind in order to make it work, too.

And you're not using Avast or similar software?
