[Resolved] Download Monitor does not show a save dialog

  • I suspect this is just a problem of me not setting the download up properly –

    When I download a file it opens the target application – like for instance a pdf will pop-up opened. What I need is to get the dialog to just allow the user to save the file. It just seems to want to open everything in a new window.

    Ideas on what I have missed? I have been other wp sites and there seems to be no problem.

    Thanks,

  • It seems that my ISP had set of file types predefined. Even though I was defining the files I was usint the pre-defined ones would override mine.

    Anyway my problem was solved you using my ISP’s program on my control panel have them do an equivlent of an
    .htaccess
    AddType application/octet-stream gpx

    It is my understanding that it is a security issue when the correct MIME type is not available to the server and the browser “guesses”.

    My stuff works now, so I am happy.
