[Closed] Platform gives wrong link to source

PortableApps.com\Other\Source\Source.txt indicates PortableApps.com/Suite for the platform source, but source is now linked from portableapps.com/download.

One More Click

When you click download, you get links to download the platform and the source on the next page. So, it's just another click.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Bad UX design

My expectation was that if I hit the download button, it would start a download, as that is what similarly styled buttons do everywhere else across the site.

I know you don't want to get rid of the \Suite page as users may have it bookmarked and older versions of the platform point to that page etc. but wouldn't it be better to 301 redirect that page to \download instead?

Nope

We're going to do something with it.

UX is a separate discussion and unrelated to source.
