Support » Plugins and Hacks » [Plugin: Download Monitor] incorrect redirects

  • I have been using Download Monitor for a long time. I don’t know if this is a new issue, or one that I never noticed before.

    I can’t seem to find any similar threads that solve my problem, so I ask your help.

    Today I uploaded a new file, which I only do occasionally, and I noticed that when I view the file in the browser (in this case it is a pdf file), the url is not displayed as I expect although the correct file is shown.

    WP and all plugins are up to date as of today.

    The url form download monitor is : http://www.site.com/downloads/filename.pdf

    But in the browser, this shows as:

    http://www.site.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/filename.pdf

    My expectation is that the browser would show it as:

    http://www.site.com/downloads/filename.pdf

    My wordpress is in a subdirectory (public_html/wordpress)

    My .htaccess in public_html is:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    #RewriteRule ^downloads/([^/]+)$ http://www.site.com/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=$1 [L]

    RewriteRule ^downloads/([^/]+)$ /wordpress/wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=$1 [L]

    </IfModule>
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Any ideas of how to have the correct (or expected) url display in the browser?

    Thanks everyone in advance!
