    Hi,
    Ive been using Download monitor for a while now & its been working great except a slight issue.

    I have my wordpress install on one server (http://www.mysite.co.uk), and i have my files, videos, pds, power points on a separate much faster media server (http://mycontrolledcontent.mysite.com)
    Ive been adding the Downloads to the DL monitor and adding the shortcode to the pages where needed.

    The user logs into the site & clicks on a specific PDF to download, then they are referred to a URL which is something like:
    http://mywebsite.co.uk/download/2157/

    This is perfect, as it hides the full URL path from the user to stop them sharing the link.

    My main problem is that when it IS a PDF or a video, it opens in the Browser exposing the full URL to them i.e:
    http://mycontrolledcontent.mysite.com/media/workflow.pdf

    Is there anyway to stop this full URL being exposed? Or forcing PDFs to download & not display in the browser?

    Thank you very much
