Default I think someone may find this helpful [Broken Redirects]
Hi! So today I went to download two worlds from the same simblr both from simfileshare. The link to the dowloads were both attached to a tumblr redirect page. One redirect worked, the other did not. I really wanted the second world as well so I looked into the html of the working link of the world that I actually got to download.

This is the html
<a href="http://t.umblr.com/redirect?z=http%3A%2F%2Fsimfileshare.net%2Fdownload%2F247041%2F&amp;t=OGJlQ5ZmMkkvgtH...>Download (Simfileshare)</a>

This is the link
http://simfileshare.net/download/247041/

Bingo!
So I go back and inspect the html of the failed link as well so I can extract the numbers to the actual download.

<a href="http://t.umblr.com/redirect?z=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.simfileshare.net%2Fdownload%2F70705%2F&amp;t=OTY5OTMzOGU3YzliMjUxYTcwZjZh...">DOWNLOAD WORLD HERE</a>

Yay! So I plugged those numbers in and this link >http://simfileshare.net/download/70705/< is the working link the redirect wouldnt take me to

So yeah idk if this is basic or something more along the lines for people who are a bit more computer savvy but here's a fix for if you're ever in this situation and just so happen to have all the resources I did. This can be used for many different links given you got all the information you need.

*** the html was really long and dropping off the page so I shortened it, but same principle
