I created my fairly simple site (http://galvanicmac.com) in FW Pro 3 or 4 with a provided template and have successfully migrated it to FW Pro 5. On my Links page, I want to create a link to download an application rather than to go to an external site.
I could either A) have this create a new page that tells the user that it’s downloading, or B) just have the download start without leaving the links page. I’m having trouble doing either of these.
The reason I can’t do A is that when I’m in the Edit Hyperlink dialog, (Internal tab) and I choose “new page” it creates a new master that has a text overflow that won’t publish. It’s in the top left button that is part of the template that I didn’t make. It’s like my Master got corrupted or something. I’m worried that this is going to be a problem going forward for any new page try to create!
The Problem with B is that I just don’t know how to start a hyperlink download without jumping off the page. I’m pretty sure that this is simple but I can’t figure it out. Is it in the Target part of the Edit Hyperlink dialog? I have created an external link that points to the file on my server and I’ve gotten the download to work. But It jumps to a page that gives a 404 error. How can make the page stay put and just have the user see their downloads window pop up?
