download a book from mobile should be possible
Open, MediumPublic

Description

go to a book like
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Books/Derivatives. the mobile
skin again is broken and the download link is crippled. if one is
lucky to hit the zim download link anyway, it switches over to a
non-mobile link to generate the book. it really seems to generate the
book, and displays a link. clicking it then downloads a 6.5 mb big
"index.php" and says "failed".

(tested on android 4.1, standard browser, i.e. chrome)

this is a blocker for this extension ... given that it makes most sense on mobiles.

This is not a blocker at all - it looks like a regular bug (possibly major, I can't judge that).

the mobile skin again is broken and the download link is crippled.

Could you please attach a screenshot of https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Books/Derivatives here (which does not display private data) so it's more clear what "broken" means? See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screenshot#Android for more information.

This is not a Collection bug, Special:Book works perfectly on mobile. The issue is MobileFrontend killing download links and even templates like [[s:it:Template:Libro salvato]]. Compare:

If I take the link from normal skin and add an m., all works perfectly:

are exactly the same.

Collections extension needs to set targets in ResourceLoader and verify that these actually work on mobile devices.
