On the page

  http://software.opensuse.org/131/en

it saies

  md5 checksum is still the most commonly used checksum. Many ISO burners display  it right before burning

Clicking on the link md5 one gets the page

  http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.1/iso/openSUSE-13.1-DVD-i586.iso.md5

which displays the checksum. I personally download to a file which is shown in the file manager krusader. krusader is able to verify the checksum provided there is a .md5 file somewhere. So I copied the content of the md5 file to a new txt file, saved that, and finally startet the verification process.
Things would be easier if clicking on md5 would lead directly to the md5 _file_ which could then be used for the verification. So I suggest having the download page changed accordinly for 13.2.

In closing I would like to thank you for the work done for us users.

No idea why this feature request regarding software.opensuse.org was assigned to KDE-Maintainers

I fear that this was also not the correct component/assignee.
