    No "Download" link on Pack pages


    Hi there,

    Using Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, I can't seem to find any way to download Packs from freesound. There is no text link, no graphical button link, nothing.

    I see from older threads that there have various problems with Packs before. Are the links all broken/offline at the moment? Is anyone else able to download Packs? If so, where should the Download link actually be on the page?

    Thanks in advance - I love Freesound!

    Just to be clear, I can download individual samples fine. It's Packs that I can't find any way to download.

    There's clearly an issue with the server.

    Given that sounds function like so:

    http://www.freesound.org/people/USERNAME/sounds/NUMBER/downloaders/ - list of downloaders
    http://www.freesound.org/people/USERNAME/sounds/NUMBER/download/ - downloads sound

    I theorized the same "downloaders"/"download" logic worked with packs. I was right:

    http://www.freesound.org/people/USERNAME/packs/NUMBER/downloaders/ - list of downloaders
    http://www.freesound.org/people/USERNAME/packs/NUMBER/download/ - Internal Server Error

    Now, "Internal Server Error" means something went wrong inside their code. This isn't a "page not found" error -- which you get if you try something randomly.

    What I find particularly annoying is that the pack pages allow you to sample sounds but don't let you directly download -- you need to click through a totally separate page first.

    Hi all. We are still trying to improve pack downloads. We will now make an upgrade that hopefully should make this feature more reliable and also easier to handle on the server.
    Unfortunately this means that packs will be unavailable during a few hours. I'll post here again once this process is finished.
