UploadPDF doesn't recognize some valid links


  • I'm trying to upload a PDF for a paper of mine that is known to CiteSeer, but not known to Academic Search:

    However, the site replies "Please input a valid url". It looks for a ".pdf" extension, which is naive.


    I was able to fool it into trying to download by adding "&bogus.pdf" at the end:

    Now it says "Sorry, the system failed to get the PDF file". I tried this URL and CiteSeer serves it just fine.
