Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
The "Go" button is linking to :-
What I would prefer to happen is if the procedure fails then rather than the "Page not found screen" appearing the person viewing the site would see another screen with a button on which links directly to my download file. This way I would lose the personal details of the person but they could still download the program. I would much prefer this situation than them see a "Page not found screen" and perhaps dissapear forever.
Has anyone any idea how this could be done?
However, .htaccess files can be placed in any directory and will apply only to that directory and any below it. Maybe you could set up a custom 404 page just for your cgi-bin, with the direct download link on it?
