[EP-tech] Word Documents won't download



Hi all,

So, the problem is the URL generated by EPrints compiled XML's 
cite:linkhere which uses http rather than https.? The suggestion John's 
makes about 
https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.eprints.org%2Fw%2FSimplified_HTTPS_Configuration%23HTTPS_Only&data=04%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Ce645a942823e407f0c8108d8b0d84c0f%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0%7C0%7C637453790313947642%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=W3N64aRV7mWjDuSEm6hvLbB4Xjo%2FJvUTtgEeW%2BlzArk%3D&reserved=0 
will only work if you are running EPrints 3.4.1+, which I can see that 
you are not.

One of the features I have been working on for 3.4.3 is protocol 
relative URLs which should help deal with these issues.? If you are 
still running 3.3.x fixing these sort of problems with be tricky.? I 
think you need to look at the various document citations and possible 
eprint_render.pl and replace the http URLs with https URLs.? In some 
cases the http URL will come from the <cite:linkshere>, which you will 
probably need to hack with a fix like:

<a href="{$config{https_url}}/{eprintid}/{pos}/{main}">

and </cite:linkhere> with </a>

Hope this helps
