WP-DownloadManager

Description

General Usage

  1. You Need To Re-Generate The Permalink WP-Admin -> Settings -> Permalinks -> Save Changes
  2. To embed a specific file to be downloaded into a post/page, use [download id="2"] where 2 is your file id.
  3. To embed multiple files to be downloaded into a post/page, use [download id="1,2,3"] where 1,2,3 are your file ids.
  4. To limit the number of embedded downloads shown for each post in a post stream, use the stream_limit option.
    1. Example: [download id="2" stream_limit="4"]
    2. This will only display the first 4 downloads for the post when rendered in a post stream, and display the full list of downloads when viewing the single post.
  5. To sort embedded downloads, use the sort_by and sort_order options.
    1. Example: [download id="2" sort_by="file_id" sort_order="asc"]
    2. This will sort the embedded downloads by file ID in ascending order.
    3. Valid values for sort_by are: file_id, file, file_name, file_size, file_date, and file_hits
  6. To choose what to display within the embedded file, use [download id="1" display="both"] where 1 is your file id and both will display both the file name and file desccription, whereas name will only display the filename. Note that this will overwrite the “Download Embedded File” template you have in your Download Templates.
  7. To embed files as well as categories, use [download id="1,2,3" category="4,5,6"] where 1,2,3 are your file id and 4,5,6 are your category ids.

  9. The direct download category link will be http://yoursite.com/downloads/?dl_cat=3, where yoursite.com is your WordPress URL, downloads is your Downloads Page name and 3 is your download category id.
  10. In order to upload the files straight to the downloads folder, the folder must be first CHMOD to 777. You can specify which folder to be the downloads folder in Download Options.

#1 WP Download Manager – Easy & Simple

I needed a php download script to hide and manage remote download links. After searching the entire web I found this plugin. It has latest working code.

Though it lacks some features because it was meant to be lite and simple.
