Document Links Widget

This plugin allows you to list links to your Media Library files. Great for offering white papers or other document downloads on your website.

Why aren't my documents showing up in the sidebar?

Please check that you have placed the Document Links Widget in the sidebar, and that you have selected one or more categories to show up in the widget. Double-check that you have selected a category that contains documents. In other words, if you have selected "PDF" in the widget, but don't have any PDFs selected in the Admin Panel, no PDFs will appear in your sidebar.

How do I change the title of a document?

To change a document title, find that document in the Media Library and edit the title there. Please note that this will change the title anywhere you are using the document, in your blog, pages, etc.

I want people to be able to download images. Why aren't my images showing up?

This plugin is configured specifically for written documents and zip archives. If you like, you can upload a .zip archive of your image(s).

I would like to have a separate category for CAD/Excel/PowerPoint/AIFFÉ

I've started with popular text document categories. If I get enough requests for a particular file type, I may add categories to future versions of the plugin. If you are handy with PHP, feel free to adapt the plugin code to fit your needs.

When I chose to show the document icons, they aren't aligned/look funny

Every effort has been made to have the icons appear correctly in most themes. However, themes are built in many different ways and you may be using one that is not compatible with the icons. Try a different theme or opt not to show the icons.
