Thread: File Library Idea

  1. #1

    Default File Library Idea

    Maybe this has been addressed already, but would it be possible to set up the flightsim.com file library so that you could browse or search without needing to log in? If you find something you want to download you can log in then. It seems to me that this would save a lot of nodes.

    That feature has been in place for quite some time already, but most people don't realize it. Give it a shot, and see what happens.

    Default Am I doing something wrong ?

    Help me out here Darrell :) If I go to the "Advanced File Search" page and type in my parameters in either the "file name" or "search for text", it always asks me to login first. Is there a new way to circumvent that or am I not going to the right search area ?


    Best Regards,

    Bob :-wave

    Bob,
    Don't know about the search functions, but if you just want to look at the "New" uploads, you can browse that without being logged in. Of course, if there is something you wish to have, you would then need to log in.

    BTW, I am having a problem getting into the FSFree for all site. Are you experiencing difficulties?

    Peter,
    I just checked again. Typed www.flightsim.com into my browser, then hit "Main Menu", then "Newest Uploads", (or however it's worded), and was able to browse the library. I clicked on one to d/l, and then got the login screen. Can't think what may be happening in your case, but it does work for me.

    Ahh... nm then. I can get into the newest files but I thought you could actually search files without logging in and only loggin in to download.

    Darrell,

    You can ONLY browse the New Files area without login in. To search or download "old" files you have to log in. It will ask you to login if you try to search without login in. I belive it's the 300 newest files uploaded to server that you can look at without login in.

    Nope, can't search! I just took another look, and the Search Files link has the *, which, (down at the bottom of the page), indicates you must log-in to use.

    Yep, missed the "Search" part of the original post.
