    See if the WordPress Download Monitor plugin will do what you want.

    Thanks vtxyzzy1 This one works! It doesnt work EXACTLY how i would like (visitors must right click>save link as in order to download), but it does work. I will use it until I find something that will offer a normal download link or button. Acceptable but not perfect. Thannks again!

    vtxyzzy,
    Jus wanted to update you. As I said the plugin you suggested was ok but lacked an actual download button. I found annother plugin that is perfect for my needs however: wordpress download manager!
    Would not have found it without your suggestion so my sincere thanks!

    The plugin I suggested will show a button to let a visitor go directly to the 'Save File' dialog without a right click. Just use the supplied shortcode with a custom format:

    Shortcode: [download id='1' format='2']

    Where format #2 is <form action="{url}" method="post"><button type="submit" value="Submit" >Download {title}</button></form>

    Thank you vtxyzzy. I did try that & it worked well. I do appreciate your advice, but I am going to stick with wordpress download manage simply because I have 1 less step to make it do as I want it to. Instead of a seperate shortcode, I simply set it in the configuration & it works on all future downloads.
