Adding files (.epub) for downloading: how/ (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I just realized I do see a way to upload a file (.epub in my case) then adding a link on a page for peeps to DL it. Is there a way to do this through the Dashboard?

    I could of course just place the file in the site folder and then add a link to it...is that the way it's done?

    Thanks!

    Hm... can't edit? the above should read "I just realized I do NOT see a way..." sorry.

    That should work if your host supports the mimetype for .epub files (or you can add that in .htaccess:

    # Add filetypes
    AddType application/epub+zip .epub
    # End filetypes

    Yes that worked though I find it hard to believe WordPress doesn't address this in the dash or perhaps a plugin.

    I'll wait on 'resolved' for a bit to see if anyone has something else.

    Where do you add "# Add filetypes
    AddType application/epub+zip .epub
    # End filetypes"

    Thank you
