Post Attached Media Downloads

Easily add media downloads to posts and pages

Add media to posts and pages (even Custom Post Types!) to quickly and easily generate download lists for your content.

Features include

  • Simple per-post management of downloadable media
  • Use the familiar WordPress media screen to upload or add files
  • Use a single shortcode, [pamd], to add downloads to your content
  • Advanced users may call functions directly in their themes to implement download areas outside the post content

Advanced use

If you wish to make use of media downloads in your theme, you can call the get_downloads() function directly in the following way;

$pamd->get_downloads( $postID, $echo, $return_format, $target )

All parameters are optional, and if no downloads are found the function will return false. The parameters control the following;

$postID integer

The ID of the post you wish to fetch, if none is provided the id form The Loop will be used

$echo boolean

Should the content be echoed or returned

$return_format string

What format should the list be returned in, the default is an unordered list

  • array returns an array of the media
  • table returns a table with the media
  • pamd (default) returns an unordered list with the media

$target string

This attribute is only used if you are returning a table or the default behavior is left, and will determine the target attribute of the link
