Template:Dsda2ftp

From DoomWiki.org

Instructions[edit]

This template is a shortcut for linking individual files within the DSDA archive (usually containing one demo and one readme each), without having to look up the full URL each time.  It should always be used in place of the full URL, to guard against link rot.

Syntax:

{{dsda2ftp|wad ID/file ID/title.zip|explanatory text}}

wad ID is usually, but not always, the mapset's physical file name. file ID and title are assigned by the DSDA database software and the demo author respectively.  Most uses of this template are in tables of fastest runs, where by convention the explanatory text simply repeats the name of the zip file.

For example, typing

{{dsda2ftp|doom2/26814/30cm7057.zip|30cm7057.zip}}

is the same as typing

[https://dsdarchive.com/files/demos/doom2/26814/30cm7057.zip 30cm7057.zip]

and produces

30cm7057.zip

which when clicked would download Peroxyd and Xit Vono's UV max coop demo of Doom II.

The explanatory text can be omitted, in which case the link is simply auto-numbered along with other such links.
