Have link with ID but no download occurs (2 posts)

    my form shortcode in the page body content:
    [email-download download_id="1" contact_form_id="2749"]

    The file was FTP'd to the server so I added it to the WordPress Download Monitor with the URL:
    /home/content/42/7979142/html/mySite/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/TheFall.mp3

    The file also has an image included with the URL also:
    http://mySite.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/TheFall-150x150.png

    I have a link with an ID but the file never starts to download.
    The link looks like this:
    http://mySite.com/wp-content/plugins/email-before-download/download.php?dl=84e934fb72e5777060fbd8293fde5787

    The file is a 9.44 MB MP3 file.

    I noticed that in the table wp_ebd_item the file column reads NULL.
    id download_id file title timestamp
    1 1 NULL The Fall 2012-09-24 13:37:46

    When I first installed the plugin it worked, it never has since.
    Are there any issues with using the %postname% permalink with this set of plugins (contact form 7, WP download monitor, EBD) ??

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    Hi Cornelius3D,

    Were you able to resolve your issue? Instead of using a relative path to your file, have you tried using an absolute URL?

    So instead of:

    /home/content/42/7979142/html/mySite/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/TheFall.mp3

    Try:

    http://mysite.com/.../TheFall.mp3
