Autodownload enables you to link to files in a directory in your posts and pages without interacting with WordPress.

Autodownload enables your WordPress blog to provide links to files on your server. Emphasize has been put on ease of use and thus it does most of the things automagically. Installation of Autodownload is easy and should not take more than 5 minutes (if not less!). Once Autodownload was configured you can used in your posts or pages. A simple function call automatically generates links to files in a given directory. Adding new links is then a matter of uploading files into this directory and does not need further interaction with WordPress. Optionally you can also add descriptions to the links and configure the html.
