How Do I insert a zip file for readers to download? (2 posts)

    Hi,
    I've uploaded a zip file with "Media" - "add new" and it now shows in my media library. The zip file contains a pdf file & an mp3 file.
    How do I insert a link into my post so my readers can download this zip file to their computers?
    Any help is much appreciated.
    thanks

    if you want readers to download the file I would not put it in the media library as they would then have to go through /wp-content folder to get it.
    Why not simply create a folder like "downloads" - put the files in there
    then link to it from post or page like
    http://example.com/downloads/something.zip
