WordPress.com is rewriting my download links to point back to wordpress.com, even though these links point to a server off the wordpress.com website.
This is, naturally, very destructive.
Note: I’ve set up a provisionally temporary download page that won’t get adulterated by WordPress.com’s filters. It may become permanent, which isn’t the end of the world.
The only way around this is to right click on each link you want, copy the link, paste the link into your browser address bar, and edit the following:
I don’t know if WordPress.com will fix this bug of theirs, or if they’ll even consider it a bug, or if they’ll just ignore me. If they won’t fix the bug, I have a back-up plan, but I would prefer not to have to pay for multiple domains.
In the meanwhile, I’m curious.
