WIKI FAQ

Post by alecjames » Wed Apr 08, 2020 8:43 am

https://wiki.freecadweb.org/

When I try to view the FAQ my browser downloads a file instead of opening the page. Is this just me or is it broken?

It appears the href for that is simply /FAQ

It is apparently a file that contains:

Code: Select all

The MediaWiki FAQ can be found at:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:FAQ
Which is a link to the MediaWiki manual FAQ.
Maybe either the link has been buggered accidentally or the file is not the correct format. :?: :?:

I assumed this was a freecad FAQ, is it?

The link in the file is to a wiki FAQ, not what I expected.
