ZIP files... Having a really bad time using zip files (14 posts)

    I have uploaded ZIP files to EDD to sell and have retested and retested... It downloads about half way and just stops... I have no idea why. The whole ZIP file is where it should be but not even the shortcut link works...

    I have had to resort to hosting the ZIP files on dropbox which suuux... Dropbox is working perfect with ZERO issues but I don't want customers getting a dropbox link... No one wants that...

    Can someone please help??

    It's on the site http://robtowner.com/downloads

    On another note, it also shows the zip file in the picture gallery for some reason???

    PS. I have researched. The files aren't corrupt...
    zipped files EDD no like :( I have some really pissed off customers...


  2. How large are the zip files?

    What version of EDD are you on?

    The latest version...

    Also, any ideas on not having the files in the picture gallery?

    If you can help me with this I will be your BEST FRIEND! :)

  4. Hmm, that definitely should not be a problem. I've only seen this pop up occasionally when files of in the range of 500MB +.

    I don't see the zip files in a gallery anymore. Direct URL where they show up?

    Can you give me a sample URL to test a download?

  6. That file seems to be complete, though that also didn't go through EDD since you gave me a direct download link.

    Here's the direct link - http://robtowner.com/downloads/hanukkah-antarctica/

    Have fixed the issue of the ZIP file being added to the image gallery. Had to delete the file, then upload it separately and added the above ZIP download link to the downloadable file section... I.E. didn't upload the file when creating the new download, because it just added a ZIP file to my image gallery...

    Blahhh... Does it look like it works now??

  8. I need the link that is sent after a purchase.

  12. Do you get an email that is broken, or no email at all?
