#836 The verify links have disappeared for Server and Workstation
Closed: Won't fix / Can't fix 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by bowlofeggs.

I went to download Fedora 28 Server today and I noticed that the verify links are no longer present at https://getfedora.org/ or https://getfedora.org/en/server/. I also did not find verify links for workstation at https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/. There used to be big "verify" buttons next to the "download" buttons and they were useful (and I think important).

There do still seem to be verify links on the alt download page: https://alt.fedoraproject.org/

No, we never had big "verify" buttons next to the "download" buttons since we have getfedora.org.
You will get the right checksum file when you decide to download an image.
i.e. if you click on the Server button in the Server download page you will be redirected to a page where you will see a prominent "verify" button, which leads you to the checksum file for the image you are downloading (they are dynamically changed for every image you choose from getfedora.org).

All other websites don't have dynamic checksum files, they work like the old fedoraproject.org website, that's why we have so many verify links there (which is ugly).

I'm going to close this as a wontfix. Thanks anyway.

Interesting, somehow I had missed that when I filed the ticket. Sorry for the noise!
