Yeah... I think it would only break the system for the translated versions of the articles, though. However, I'm using the DISPLAYTITLE template to keep things easier, it works perfect! Thanks ;P

I have a little suggestion, which may be or not be useful.
I know you are using Dropbox as host for the ENIGMA Portable ZIP and how Dropbox works in terms of file hosting, but I wonder if it would be better to have a Wiki template where you store the current link to that zip.
This could be useful mainly to the translation forms of the Installation wiki page; if the official link changed by any means (e.g. deleting-and-re-pasting or renaming the zip file), then the links stored at translations would get broken. But, if the provided link was a global wiki template which only admins could edit (obviously), there'd no problems about this one possible issue (which will only occur for the spanish translation atm, heh).

Sure, someone could edit those links. But it wouldn't be very efficient; it might take some time before this detail gets noticed.

I hope I explained myself.

Templates take time to propagate when edited. My preference would be to have pages requiring that link to instead link users to the correct download page on the Wiki. That said, I'm not opposed to the idea.

I should point out, though, that down the road, we will be adding a feature to this website for serving the latest version of ENIGMA. I'm not sure how far down the road we're talking about, so at this point, do whatever.

Ben, as long as they don't have to go through multiple pages as in your saying just an easy way to embed the link to the pages? Ya that's fine.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

I don't speak or read Spanish but I don't have to to notice your kindness and generosity in translating these articles. Well done Ben! :-)

Hi Ben / Robert
Did the template end up being made? If not, I'm happy to implement it.
Cheers.
