I have tried to download the Blender User Manual at blender wiki but it just won''t work. It seems to download a lot of pages saying there is no text found (which seems to be their version of a 404 error. It uses a lot of PHP and other things that I don''t have a clue about!!

Has anyone got it to work and if so how?


Here''s the URL
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Manual

I downloaded it with Level=1 and found no problems. Please select the Internet tab and make sure you have MS Internet Explorer selected for identification, "Use alternate connection method" checked, cookies checked.

I created a Project with the above URL and downloaded it - I got the correct page offline. Really strange...

This is using OE Pro by the way.

No luck with any of the settings I try :-(

One other idea to try is to check or uncheck the "Use alternate connection method" in the Internet tab of the Ribbon. Then make the Project redownload.
