Genesis Connect for Easy Digital Downloads

Integrate the Easy Digital Downloads plugin easily with the Genesis Framework and Genesis child themes: Templates, plus two additional widgets.

Does this plugin work with the latest WordPress version and also older versions?

Yes, this plugin works really fine with the latest WordPress branch 3.5, plus the upcoming 3.6; it should also work fine with legacy branches 3.3 and 3.4.

And sorry, it DOES NOT work with older WordPress versions so please update your install if you haven't done yet :).

How can I use my own templates with a child theme?

(1) Best practice for making an existing child theme compatible: In your child theme just create an folder named /edd/ and copy the template files from this plugins "template" folder into it. Then customize these copies as much as you like (some skills with Genesis & WordPress hooks and filters are strongly recommended...). You can also create your own taxonomy-{taxonomy}.php and taxonomy-{taxonomy}-{term}.php templates in the same location and this plugin will find them and use them to display your website's Download Category and Download Tag archives. See the Template Hierarchy to learn more about naming requirements for taxonomy templates.

(2) Developers can also use the child theme root folder and package their native templates their. My integration plugin supports the root folder from version 1.1.0+ on!

Which post types are supported by this plugin?

Only the 'Download' post type!

  • currently the post type uses this ID/tag: download -- plus taxonomies: download_category and download_tag
  • This will soon change to this ID/tag: edd_download -- plus taxonomies; edd_download_category and 'edd_download_tag`

Note: The integration plugin supports BOTH IDs since version 1.1.0+ so you will not loose any support if the change in EDD comes. You won't ever notice it... :-)
