On the page

https://librivox.org/short-story-collection-vol-065-by-various/

I was checking my reading, and it won't play, says "Page not found". The person on the project was LynneT.
The story was "The Man With Two Left Feet by P.G.Wodehouse (1881-1975)". Neither the left hand button nor the link on the name work. I still have the file, let me know if I need to upload it.

Thanks.

It looks like you named the file wrong, and it didn't get fixed at cataloging time.

https://archive.org/download/shortstorycollection065_1701_librivox/shortstory065_manwith2leftfeet_09_128k.mp3

Missing the "b". :)

I'll fix it now.

EDIT: Wait - it's more than that. You can download the 64kb version, but not the 128kb. Stay tuned...

This is temporarily fixed. A permanent fix won't happen until Archive fixes something on their end that is happening to all our newly-cataloged (and newly-changed) projects.

(For future reference: The file names remain wrong, and Archive has section 9 listed as a VBR file. But the catalog page points to the files, so they play.)

TriciaG;

Thanks much for taking care of that. Was it a problem with the file that I could have fixed? I didn't think I had the wrong format or anything? I just want to make sure going forward I get things right.

Thanks again.

You had the wrong file name. Instead of _128kb at the end, you had _128k. This is often caught during cataloging, but this time it slipped through the cracks.

So I guess you could just be very, very careful with file names, and/or hope your MC catches the mistake. ;)

Very good. I'll keep a closer watch on that! Thanks much.

Should be fixed now. Both links from the catalog page play.

The rest of the Archive update process should finish shortly.
