Holst-St. Paul's Suite

Postby cevans » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:18 pm

Hello! I'm new to the forums, so this may not be the right place to do this, but St. Paul's Suite is having trouble loading. Can anyone help with this?

Thank you!

The filename of IMSLP #21160 is:

IMSLP21160-PMLP48902-Holst_-_St._Paul's_Suite.pdf

Apparently there is a bug on the download link proposed to anonymous users: spurious characters appear in the link where an apostrophe is present, so the file is not reachable. The correct link is proposed to members instead, probably because the page where the bug is present is bypassed. I'm not sure about registered users who are not members: I'm afraid that the faulty page is shown to them, too.

Anyway, as a workaround, if you correct the URL in the address bar of your browser using the filename above, you should be able to reach the file.

Thank you for this, but I was still unable to access the parts. What I ended up trying as a link is:

http://ks.imslp.net/files/imglnks/usimg ... _Suite.pdf

That didn't work. This is what the original link was:

http://ks.imslp.net/files/imglnks/usimg ... 02-St_Paul

Perhaps I don't understand where to paste your fix? Please advise, and thank you for your time.

Unfortunately the fix is different for each file, and finding the missing part of the filename is not obvious. You should inspect the html code of the IMSLP web page providing the link to download the file. You'll find a filename like:

IMSLP247533-PMLP48902-St_Paul's_Suite_Violin_II.pdf

The string ' is the cause of the problem. It should be replaced with an apostrophe. If spelunking the html code is too difficult to you, here are the filenames for the various parts of this work:

IMSLP247532-PMLP48902-St_Paul's_Suite_Violin_I.pdf
IMSLP247533-PMLP48902-St_Paul's_Suite_Violin_II.pdf
IMSLP247534-PMLP48902-St_Paul's_Suite_Viola.pdf
IMSLP247535-PMLP48902-St_Paul's_Suite_Cello.pdf
IMSLP247536-PMLP48902-St_Paul's_Suite_Bass.pdf

So you can copy-and-paste the missing part of the filename in the address bar of your browser.

Hopefully the ' bug will be soon fixed.

This bug should be fixed now if you refresh the work page.
