Support » Plugin: Download Monitor » Custom link text

    This is likely easier than I’m making it, but I’m not a wordpress dev so who knows. I’d like to make a download link, that uses custom text, not the title. That way I can see the title in WP Admin and know what I’m looking at but can use a more user friendly bit of text for links.

    I created a custom field called “link_text” but that’s about where my skills end. I’ve read about adding a new download handler and adding it to the theme, etc. But have no real idea how to do that.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I’m not averse to coding so can do it, just don’t know my way around PHP/this plug-in.

    Thanks!

    Hey,

    If you like to create a new content template to display all your download links in a certain way, you’ll want to use this: https://www.download-monitor.com/kb/overriding-content-templates/

    But if you simply want to control the link text of a download URL, you can add a default WordPress link in your content editor. Just make sure you point the link (the href) to the /download/ URL of your download and it should all work.

    Kind Regards,

    Barry Kooij
