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.

    • Need Help Running Stronghold 2: Deluxe Version 1.31

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls

      I was recently playing Stronghold Crusader 2 after upgrading my hardware and it has made me want to play stronghold crusader even more. Which reminded me of stronghold knights and a lot of their old stronghold content from Stronghold to Stronghold 2. I was wondering if anyone either had any copies of the many skirmish maps for crusader that were once part of SHK before its downfall.  This is a real shot in the dark but i was wanting to use the maps for old nostalgia as well as to store them
