EDD WordPress.org Downloads

Description

This plugin allows you to add WordPress.org plugins and themes as free downloads in Easy Digital Downloads.

When you add a WordPress.org plugin or theme URL to a download, the add to cart / buy now buttons will be replaced with a “Free Download” button that links to the WordPress.org plugin/theme page instead.

This plugin also adds a helpful widget that displays info such as the download count, dates added/last updated, current version, and more. This info is cached via transients so it will work well on high traffic servers, and only displays on downloads added as WordPress.org downloads.

Screenshots

  • The WordPress.org URL setting added to the Add/Edit Download page.

  • Change the button text for downloads added as WordPress.org plugins or themes in EDD Settings -> Misc.
