    im going to start shareware site using wordpress.
    i want a plugin that create afield "textbox" in writing post that i can past download link.
    and this link appears to visitors as " Download Now".

    EX:
    in my WP dashboard im writing new post about kaspersky ,
    i want afield to past download link http://kaspersky.com/kasperdownload.rar

    for visitors :
    after reading the post they can see Download Now which they can download that shareware.

    "Download Now" word is fixable in all post but the changeable is software links.

    i want it to be :

    <a href="changeable links that i can add when writing posts" target="blank">Download Now "which should to be fixable in posts before comments"</a>

    No plugin is necessary to do that. You can use custom fields: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Custom_Fields

    If you name the field "download_link", you can do it like this...

    In your template (single.php), add this code where you want the download link to appear (but it must be within The Loop):

    <a href="<?php echo get_post_custom_values('download_link'); ?>">Download Now</a>

    There are several plugins to handle downloads if a plugin is what you want. Try this one. It will track the number of times an item has been downloaded and also give you the option of password-protecting it.
