Can't download SMF?
« on: January 13, 2021, 04:40:16 PM »
I didn't scour the forum, but every time I attempt to download SMF (either version, full install), I get a message that the source file is not found.
I've tried multiple browsers, multiple computers, same results.
Did I miss something with a maintenance?

No, apparently there's some sort of a problem... probably server side, but let's wait for an official response from the team. Same thing is happening with attachments on the forum :-\.

Meanwhile, you can download it from here ;).

I believe it is a known issue being looked into. Fails for me as well in Firefox, Chrome

Yeah, but it didn't fail in Linux and Pale Moon ???. Tried it like an hour ago.

Ok.  Thanks for the alternate link -- I used to have a copy of it on a flash drive, but for the life of me I couldn't find it.

It still fails for me in Windows, under Firefox and Chrome.

I appreciate the quick replies, though!  Hopefully it's something easily resolved.

Looks like it's resolved now ;). Seems like someone was working while we were moaning :P ;D.
