Problems with links to Stronghold Nation

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have seen before that I have some issues with Stronghold Nation links, but I wasn't sure was it about SHN or about the browser or email client. Now I figured out what was the issue. When you give us a link like this:

 

www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/367-a-kings-game/

 

sometimes it loads the link without "/" at the end (like this: www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/367-a-kings-game ). When the page loads without the "/" symbol, error 404 shows up.

 

I still don't know if this is something that needs to be solved at Stronghold Nation, but I'm just letting you know. :)

I've never experienced this error before. Could you provide me with an example of some sort?

For example, if you simply copy and paste a link for a map submitted to Stronghold Nation at Stronghold Heaven forum (that is without using the url bbcode tags), and if you later click on the posted link there, the visitor would get error 404 - the same one as you could see if you click on the link above without "/" symbol. Obviously it's not just me, It happened to PCdania at Stronghold Heaven as well in a tread for off topic stuff. Only I fixed the link yesterday. It was in this tread.

Btw, it happens in different browsers like Edge, Firefox, Chrome...

That's a problem with the Stronghold Heaven forum rather than the site. It's not paring the URL properly.

I agree, it should be putting the "/" together with the rest of the link within url tag. I just meant to let you know - in case you could implement some kind of forwarding. (I don't imply you should do it, but we could expect that issue like this appears somewhere else too.) I have similar issue with Outlook mail client for Windows 10. Regarding Outlook, I will write a feedback to Microsoft about that, this app it's still being developed, so it might be fixed.

There was forwarding in place for old URLs for a period of time, but I removed this eventually. I don't see any benefit in adding forwarding for this; although it is only a single line it's to fix a problem with an external site.

 

I think you should get in touch with technicians at HeavenGames and ask them to fix the problem. Whether it will actually be fixed though, or if you do get a reply, is a different matter.

I get this is now 4 years hence, but I have added in URL forwarding to fix this problem. The new system I've built has allowed me to easily do this without impacting anything else on the site in terms of speed or efficiency.

      I recently got a new computer, and I decided to give Stronghold 2 another go. I didn't play it a lot originally because I played the original and Crusader first, and I didn't really like the added complexity of Stronghold 2 at the time. Once you get into it though, it's fun in its own right. I've been playing through the war campaign, and I've gotten pretty far. Today I finished Chapter 11 (Treachery).   This level is really difficult at the beginning. I tried keeping the original layout at firs
