    Is the link behind the dlm category page to the download 404 by intension?
    Category page show the downloads and description just fine, but the link behind the item lead to a 404. IS there a setting to change it, so I can access the files through the category pages?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello,

    We do not have any styling or templates for the category/tags and hence the URL will not work. To make it work, you will have to modify the plugin and add some custom templates which is beyond the scope of our support.

    You can use our paid add-on for it https://www.download-monitor.com/extensions/page-addon/.

    Also, you can create a custom page for the categories and just add our shortcode to it to only show downloads from that category.

    I hope that answers your query. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Well thanks, that helps to understands the broken link.
    But it is confusing that the plugin offers category for each download that generates category pages, showing image, description of each media.
    I hope the plugin makes sure that search engines do not index these pages and drive readers into nowhere

    Hello,

    The free plugin does not generate any category page which is why you are getting 404 error. You need to specify in your SEO plugin or any other plugin you are using to exclude the category links for the downloads.
