V2021.4.5: Bug with Download Button and previous file  en

Autor: Axel

Hello,

With the object download button there is this bug.

If I change the download file name for a new one, during the export the previous file is exported too.

So the file is put on the remote webserver with no usage and uses some space disk for nothing.
Should be nice to have juste the configured file exported !

Hope a quick fix.

Enjoy!
Axel

Hi Axel,

that seems to be nor bug. You have to delete the old fily by using the right mousebutton and 'delete'. Than you have to type in the new file.

Same functionallity than in other cases ... like picture pbject.

BR, Klaus.

Hello Klaus,

Ok. But if you have many pages with a download button and you forgot to do that... !!!! After it is not possible to fix the issue. yell

And all old file are exported too.

So it is necessary to have a way to stop this export and not by hand to try to find into directories where is hidden the file.

It should be automatically done by the software when you change a filename...

And it is not documented nowhere and there is NO DOCUMENTATION and RECOMMENDATION for any additional object.

So for me, I persist, it is a bug because the software does not do that automatically.

It so evident !

Enjoy!
Axel

Hello Axel

I can confirm that this is indeed possible and has been marked as a bug already which is due to technical reason on how the pluginApp is built. 

Can I ask you to try and delete the Download Button Object completely from the page and export again? I assume that the file is no longer uploaded, correct?

What if you now create a new one?

Try this out and keep me posted here

Thank you

Stefano

Hello Stefano,

I spent a lot of time to undertsand... I have too many pages and files mixed...

it is very time consuming !!! because I have more than 1 or 2 pages.

I remove the donwload button, exports again,  and the file is always exported. 

Sometimes the file is not correctly exported like here

Please find other solution/workaround because

By the GUI is too hard.

And pleas asks to the dev team to fix this object created with a bad structure !

Enjoy!
Axel

Hello Axel

Thank you but the project won't be necessary

We will be examining the issue on the PluginApps in general, so it might take a while unfortunately

As soon as news on this becomes available, it will be made known to the entire community

Thank you

Stefano
