Xtras Not Found On Server

Postby Wolfey » Sat Sep 24, 2016 2:33 am

For the past week I've been getting a 404 error when I attempt to download any of the Xtras. If I try to install directly from the site, I get the following message in Adium: "Xtra Downloading Error - An error occurred while downloading this Xtra: The requested URL was not found on this server.." This happens with any Xtra I pick, in any category.

Anyone know what's going on and if this issue will be resolved?

This is a known issue: https://adium.im/help

We recently had a server migration and this is one of the things that broke.

I've recently installed Adium and have hit this issue as well. As such I have a real interest in having the downloads available and would like to assist in restoring the functionality.

I'd be willing to host a mirror of the files.. I use the Adium Xtras in my software and it's too bad nobody can access them..

Any update? Where the files lost in the server migration? Just some bad coding? If you still have the files, I'd be more than happy to mirror them so people can at least download them in the meantime..

If anyone is creating Xtras, please message me as I am willing to set up a download site for them.. I'm lazy so it will just be a forum instead of a full site like they had, but better than nothing..

I set up a forum at http://adiumxtras.tk/ Feel free to sign-up, but I will need to manually approve registrations so we don't get spam bots.. You can attach your Xtras directly to your posts, as well as include images inline.. Right now there is nothing in there, but I will try to find authors and ask them about either joining or allowing me to post their files on their behalf..

I found another program called Instantbird that uses a modified Adium Message Style to provide themes to their chats.. Basically you just need to unzip the files from the .XPI and .JAR files (just rename them to .ZIP to get it to work easily).. You will then have to move the files around to match the .AdiumMessageStyle bundle format..

Posted a small tutorial with pictures http://adiumxtras.tk/forum/index.php/12-instantbird
Download from here https://addons.instantbird.org/en-US/in ... &cat=1%2C6

I will be slowly converting them to the .AdiumMessageStyle bundle format and posting on http://adiumxtras.tk/

I realize that I have been slower than I planned on being, but seeing as I am lazy I've decided that I will write a small helper app that will convert the InstantBird message styles back to the AdiumMessageStyle format.. This will allow me to quickly convert them and upload to the site, as well as allowing anybody else to do the same.. My own particular code handles most of the message style versions, whereas the Adium client only supports 3 and 4 (I believe, I never used it)..

If anybody has any of the other Xtras, feel free to email them to me so I can add them to the website as well..

The issue of not being able to download Xtras is fixed since about mid-March as mentioned in my previous post. I just checked and was able to download the anti-spam plugin.
