I think its because the developers or owners of the site are updating it, it is quite common and there has been announcements that the site is currently going maintenance. I would suggest browsing other threads for alternatives to use in the meanwhile, I am sure someone has posted a mirror link to THSC to use.
^this

Although this was unintentional haha. good thing it was checked aha.

The bulk of the site maintenance is done.

At the moment, when I go to THSC and click on a paper, I get the buttons to view and to close, but not to download... if I view a paper, I still don't get a download button, but can print the paper, though the results are sometimes sub-optimal.

For example, trying the Abbotsleigh 2021 Economics paper... I have the questions and solutions as separate files of 675 kB and 563 kB, respectively. The THSC version has these combined into a single, 45 page document. Print to PDF gives me a file of 5,829 kB if printed in colour and 5,777 kB if printed in black and white. I now notice that there is a download icon next to the printer icon, which does do a download - the downloaded file is 852 kB.

As another example, the Ascham 2005 Biology paper has one landscape orientation page at the end of the document... Printing to PDF shrinks every page so that that landscape page prints with its width reduced to fit on a portrait page width, and similarly shrinks every other page. Again, a download gives the file with the expected / desired output, with the final landscape page rotated and printed portrait.

Is this all just me? Am I doing something stupid?

Any advice / assistance welcomed, and I'd like to record my profound gratitude for all the effort that goes into assembling materials and updating the THSC site.

As a workaround please click View and then click Download. This performs the same function as the previous download functionality, but some browsers may not support it (as it is in an iframe)

yes
"Again, a download gives the file with the expected / desired output, with the final landscape page rotated and printed portrait."
what. How do I rotate the final landscape page? I'm just getting desired output with no landscape page rotated into portrait.

I used the download icon button, next the printer one, shown in dan's post above.

I went on it but there's no 2021 resources there. Would you be able to send the link please just in case I am on a different website?
Sorry I see there's a few 2021 papers but there isn't any for the subjects I do so that's why I was confused

I think the trial papers are starting to be released, we have made ours available but only the modified papers for 2021 which reflect the change in exam conditions as a result of the lock down. I haven't seen many other trial papers which have been released to the public yet and am having the same issues with the access.
