I guess on a pc you right click, but what do you do if you have a mac like me, right clicking and save linked file just downloads the link not the file


Please help!

You click the initial link in the message which pops open a "Download" window with a link to the file (in my opinion this is smart because it prevents people from leeching the file straight from the post).  

In that Download window, if it starts to open the file automatically you must click STOP.  If you configure your browser right, it shouldn't do this anyway.  On my Internet Explorer the pop up blocker blocks it from opening automatically.

Then, there is a link in the box in the center of the screen that says "Right Click and Save As..." Then, you either click the link or Right Click Save As, which should save the file (not the link).  

I've looked into a way to make it stop auto-downloading when that window opens, but I fear that if I fuck with the code too much I may break something, so its going to stay as is for the time being.

Hope that helped!
