How do I add changelog version notes?

Go to “Downloads” then “Changelogs” in the WordPress admin. Select the download you wish to add/edit the changelog for from the dropdown. Under the “Notes” column of the download’s Changelog table, click inside the area where your pre-existing notes are or where it says “Click to add notes”. An inline text editor will appear for you to use. Click Save” to save your note. Basic HTML, such as italics, bold, underline, and ordered/unordered lists is able to be used in this text area.

How do I display a changelog on my site?

Use the [dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID}] shortcode inside the WordPress page editor to display your changelog.

How do I disable pagination?

Set the [dlm_changelog] show attribute to 0, or don’t set it at all:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID}]

OR

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID} show="0"]
