[resolved] Ability to select files from Media Library when creating eShop downloads. (6 posts)

    Currently the only way to create eShop downloads are to upload them. But what if you already have files you've uploaded to the WordPress Media Library?

    You should give us the ability to choose files from the Media Library.

    Why? the WordPress media library is not secure and it is possible to link directly to any file stored there.

    elfin, I knew you'd say that, but I'd still like to do so. For all intents and purposes, most people don't have a clue how to find the link to those things anyways (I'll let the tech savvy people have a freebie for now). Take for instance my mom or sister: they'd have no idea how to find those free links, and would have to make purchases to be given the links directly via email so they can just "click here".

    People who develop/create/maintain an an online store would likely be aware of this issue, and could therefore make the appropriate decision to use or not use the Media Library.

    In my case, my downloads are all from the Media Library.

    It might be possible with an additional plugin - but certainly won't ever be added to the core plugin.
