Problem with guid link to page files



I have a page where I use "page files". Added files and folders are automatically listed using a method... And of course clicking on a link gives you the option of downloading a file. The whole thing works great here at home but when I tried to implement the same solution at work I ran into some problems with the links. The list looks fine but the actual links refer to a guid instead of the correct url. So clicking on a link to download the file does not work. Seems like it could be an issue with web.config or something but I think the config is alright. I'm thankful for any advice...

My guess is your html is invalid and this causes the url rewriter to not work properly. E.g. your not rendering a valid link-element, maybe misspelled the href-attribute.

Other causes can be deleted files or not configured the url rewriter correctly in episerver.config.

Okey, thanks... Shall have a closer look. The fact that I use cms 6R2 at home and cms 5R2 at work shouldnt be a problem as far as I know... Right? I was thinking there could be a problem with rights (files and dir) on the developmen server I'm using... The files show up just fine in file manager (episerver) and I get no warning/error trying to save... So at the same time it seems in order. I guess the actual listing depends on whats in the database and the guid is tied to a pointer to the actual files? So in theory the database can be "right" but the pointers or files/folders could be "wrong" (absent) locally...
