WordPress Download Manager
Downloads corrupted (2 posts)

    We're seeing corruption of files downloaded using Download Manager (v2.2.7). Two bytes are being added to the front of every downloaded file, a space (0x20) and a linefeed (0x0A). PDF's still open okay, the reader obviously ignores them but Word .doc files won't open.

    I gather this can happen if there are any characters outside of the <?php ?> tags but is the problem within Download Manager or is it in WordPress itself?

    Any help appreciated.

    I added an echo statement to the top of process.php to output a couple of 'X's. These appeared in the downloaded file *after* the space and linefeed - so I think that means that the problem is not in Download Manager, it must be in one of the other (many) plug-ins I've got loaded.

    Sorry for the trouble, I'll now go and try to find out which one it is.
