    Hi there,

    I’m using Download Manager with Email Before Download and Contact Form 7.

    I’m not a professional web designer and am not overly familiar with FTP but believe it would make life easier in the long run if i used it in conjunction with this plug in (as product specs are constantly evolving and it would safe relinking).

    I’m just wondering if I am able to use FTP with this plug in and if anybody could give me some tips on how?

    Would be greatly appreciated

    I don’t know what you are asking here 🙂

    if you are asking if you can use FTP to upload files, yes of course. Just add the path/URL to a new download.

    I thought as much, yes for the files that will become downloads.

    Do you know somewhere where I can find a material that will explain it step by step? I have looked around online and on youtube ect but can’t seem to find anything.

    I really don’t know FTP (I normally just make marketing materials) but have been told that I need to use it. I just don’t want to make any guesses incase i break something!

    I think it depends on the client you use.

    If you are a windows user there are loads if you have a google. I used to use smartFTP

    If you’re on a mac, Transmit is great and easy to use.

    Good luck!

    I have filezilla and komodo edit. To try and use it with your plug in I created a new directory under Download Monitor and put in the files that I want to become downloads in there. I then came onto wordpress and manually uploaded the url of the file within the new directory i.e

    It came up with “You do not have the permission to view this file” can you tell me what I did wrong?

    Depends what url you entered?

    Don’t put them there though – they will be lost during updates. Put your files in wp-uploads somewhere.
