HTML link won't show HTML but Article Download page

Postby khellekson » Sun Dec 16, 2007 7:47 pm ... sue/view/1

The non-peer-reviewed sections, which do not have abstracts, will not publish to a real HTML page, the way the full-length (with abstract!) article does. Instead, I get the opportunity to download the file.

How can I force it to publish to a proper HTML page?

Dear Karen,

HTML articles are usually displayed as PDF's are, in a specific frame, independent of the section and their configuration.

It's VERY odd that HTML behavior is inconsistent within one installation.

We had similar issues in a specific server when the HTML was NOT in UTF-8 encoding.
A server configuration prevented the wrongly-formatted HTML to download instead of display on the page.

Check if your HTML files are correctly encoded.

Hope this helps!

Good luck!
