How do you make a linked text file accessible for reader access without any need to enter username and password? This should be very simple, but I’m stuck.
All I want to do is to have a list of accessible text files on a WordPress page. I’m using Windows 7.
I have uploaded the files to the appropriate directory, changed the Permissions to Read-only for General Use, gone to Page edit on the Dashboard, inserted the correct ftp link, and updated the page. When the link is clicked, the user is always asked for (my) ftp username and password. When and only when that is entered is access to the text file made available.
How can these links be set up to point to the usual directory:
and allow viewing of the file within WordPress without being prompted for a username and password?
