User Manual file cannot be opened - error on opening

Post by meadwench » Wed Nov 08, 2006 3:46 am

Hi Guys!

I'm thrilled that we have a user manual, but when I downloaded it, it nearly crashed Firefox, and I could not open the document in Acrobat 7, it gave the error: 'The file is damaged and could not be repaired'.

Thought you'd want to know. It opens fine in IE......

For the time being try the download from http://www.joomlausermanual.com

I will take a look at the help site version.

Thanks ledzep. I was able to view it fine with Internet Explorer, the problem only seems to be with Firefox. When I went to download it, the download seemed to hang for about a minute, then when I tried to open it in Acrobat, it gave me the error.

I've got a good copy of it, and thanks for all the hard work!

I have looked at the link from http://help.joomla.org, using FireFox and it seems to be ok now. At least I was able to open the .pdf file and then Save a Copy of it.

Any further problems just let me know.
