Auto Post Download

Description

Auto Post Download plugin provides easy way to generating ZIP files with post content and post’s image. You can choose if you want to include both files in archive or only one of them (content or image).

With this plugin you will be able to provide URL for your users to download posts as a ZIP file. You need a press pack? This plugin will make it very easy.

Plugin automatically generates attachment for post while you’re publish it. It’s totally automatic, you just need to use shortcode (or php function) to print URL.

Attachments are manageable via WordPress Media Library. You can specify for which categories auto attachments should be created.

You can also define Custom Fields which will be included in generated attachment.

Generated content file can be in HTML format or just plain text. Feel free to choose your format from settings!

  • Just put [auto-post-download] wherever you want to display URL to post’s attachment.
  • You can also specify post_id – [auto-post-download postId=1]

  • You can also use php function call: <?php echo apd_downloadUrl(); ?>
