Classic Shell mirror downloading #5

Hello.
I see there is a mirror of www.classicshell.net
Thank you coddec.
It will come in handy when the original site goes down forever.
If one downloads an old user made .skin, .skin7 or .zip from this Github Archive,
for example, "Metro Glass.skin", the download file becomes "filed1f2.php".
It looks like the php file has to be renamed back to the original file name that's on the site.
Is there an easier way to download with the original file name?

Hi @CTVCAM8,

Unfortunately it was generated by site mirror program, it will require enormous effort to correct all of those errors which generated by software or re-mirror the whole site.
It's due to the forum software use php file to generate downloading url which caused this behavior.

Thanks for reporting the issue :smiley: :thumbsup:

It's not much of a deal right now, as I gather there are a couple months to go before Ivo pulls the plug on his site.
People can still download all their favorite old user skins from there until then.

I can imagine it took a lot of time, and no doubt many gigabytes of files to make that forum mirror,
as there were lots of large megabyte screenshots uploaded by everyone. :)
Thank you
