Support » Plugin: Better File Download » Limit number of displayed documents

  • Resolved Nighthawk


    Thanks for the simplicity of this plugin, and still creates a nice output! Most developers try to add as much features as possible it become too complex for regular users (such as clients, etc.).
    However, I can’t find any basic feature to limit the number of displayed downloads for a category. (eg. like be able to add “limit=”5” in the shortcode)
    i.e. I only want to display the 5 latest downloads in a category.

    How do I achieve this?

    Hi Donald,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I haven’t included a limit feature in the plugin as I assumed (obviously incorrectly) that users would simply limit the number of files in a category and if need be create a different category like maybe a date based one to suit their purposes.

    I’m snowed under with work at the moment however, I’ll try and get this feature implemented for you within the next 10 days and I’ll get back to you when I release the update with this feature.

    That would be great, Nik!
    Thanks for your effort in approving this plugin, but try keep surfing the snow instead of cover you with it. It could become really dark down there. 😉

    Have a great day!

    Hey Donald,

    I appologise that this took so long however, it is now an official feature. 🙂

    In version 1.0.7, which I’ve just uploaded to the repository…

    Just add latest="" to the category shortcode and put whatever you limit number id between the “”.

    Once again, sorry to leave you hanging for so long.

    Cheers mate.
