I agree, we need something more attention-grabbing and the front page would be a start.
Nothing some simple PHP cant do... ;)

The download link on the homepage should point to http://ahkscript.org/download/ and not to http://ahkscript.org/download/ahk-install.exe.

That's one opinion.

I suspect most people will want the installer. There should be a link to "other downloads" but at the moment there is only the link to the old archives, at the bottom of the page.

You're right. I tend to forget that most people are not like me and don't want to read a bunch of stuff first.

I'm afraid not. I redirects to it but doesn't link to it. Move your mouse over downloads or view source, the link is to l.autohotkey.net.... once there you see a page (briefly) which redirects to ahkscript.org/download so you end up there but that isn't exactly the same.

@ahk7 oh i know, give it a while it while comeback, it either your browser's cache or the server, probably your browser's cache memory :P

Oh man the download links are not consistent anymore...
there's a link to:
- http://ahkscript.org/archives/Download.html (the header image still has the xmas hat, and the image should be a link back to the homepage like the downloads' page)
- http://ahkscript.org/download/ahk-install.exe (this link goes directly goes the installer, ok thats fine but,...)
- http://ahkscript.org/download (...but there's not one single link that leads to the "other" download options, this link : the download page)

:? :|

No I'm afraid not. Look at EACH AND EVERY PAGE ON THE FORUM - there is a navigation row at the top and bottom of each page:
Board index » AutoHotkey Foundation » Welcome - IRC Channel | Commands | Tutorial | Download
the download link there is http://l.autohotkey.net/AutoHotkey_L_Install.exe - if you click on it it will take you to l.ahk.... which shows a page which redirects you to ahkscript.

What I suggest is that the link is changed to go directly to the download page http://ahkscript.org/download

ahk7 is right. There are still a few kinks in the system.

Somebody keeps putting back old copies of the homepage as the link to the changelog remains going to l.autohotkey.net etc - then its fixed to the changelog here on ahkscript but the next week its back to l.auto... I suggest you track down all the copies of the homepage you have floating around and then do a global "replace all" for the changelog link to solve this problem once and for all :-) Thank you.

Maybe we should use a "double" button, like a lot of website with miror or archive option, else we have to scroll the main page and losing time for find what we need or give up...

Code: Select all

Interesting idea... A more downloads link would be nice, because I have to manually navigate to that page : /download/

I spent some time thinking about this. I am all enterested in unity and continuity but i just dont think this one would be productive and actively self support our cause. I am open to a rational discussion to sway my opinion

Thanks for the changelog fix.

Two other minor issues:

1) missing word here:

Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces and menu bars.
See GUI for details (you can a Gui editor).

should probably be:

Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces and menu bars.
See GUI for details (you can use a Gui editor).

2) The more info link of iWB2 Learner (aka iWebBrowser2) now goes to autohotkey.com again and I thought it went to a local copy on ahkscript.org ?

re 2) it was a folder on the ahkscript.org domain so not a forum post - tank would know - or perhaps the local copy was removed and the link put back as it is now.
