EDD Featured Downloads

A plugin for Easy Digital Downloads so you can easily feature your downloads

This plugin requires Easy Digital Downloads. It's aimed at developers/clients who need to show a list of featured downloads.

  1. Provides a template tag so finely-tuned placement of featured downloads in your theme is possible.
  2. Provides a shortcode which will simply list all the featured downloads, without the need to enter any IDs.
  3. Provides a simple interface for managing featured downloads in the WordPress admin. A "feature download" checkbox will be added to each download edit/publish screen as well as the quick edit boxes. At a glance you'll also be able to see which downloads have been featured on your website from the main download listing.

In true EDD fashion, hooks are provided for developers to fine tune the HTML if needed.

Shortcode Usage

The following shortcode is available to display your featured images. Most of the shortcode attributes from the main [downloads] shortcode are available to use

[edd_featured_downloads]

Template Tag Usage

The following template tag is available for showing the featured downloads anywhere in your theme.

if( function_exists( 'edd_fd_show_featured_downloads') ) {
    edd_fd_show_featured_downloads();
}

The template tag uses the exact same HTML as the shortcode so can be modified accordingly by overriding the EDD templates.

Building your own Query

To build your own query using WP_Query you can use the meta_key parameter with a value of edd_feature_download. The following example builds a simple unordered list with all the featured downloads.

<?php 

$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'download',
    'meta_key' => 'edd_feature_download',
);

$featured_downloads = new WP_Query( $args );

if( $featured_downloads->have_posts() ) : ?>

    <ul>
        <?php while( $featured_downloads->have_posts() ) : $featured_downloads->the_post(); ?>
        <li>
           <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>">
                <?php the_title(); ?>
           </a>
        </li>
        <?php endwhile; ?>
    </ul>

<?php endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
