I’m using email before download to help a young musician build his fan base.
We’ve made his latest single available free and rather than using the theme’s inbuilt WooCommerce I thought it would be easier (!) to use this plugin
No matter if I have the Inline Link Target set to _self or _blank, clicking on the link opens a new tab, which just has my background colour (but no other aspects of my theme like logo etc) with a pop up audio player that plays the track
What I want is for clicking on the link to DOWNLOAD the file i.e. save it to the users hard drive.
The work around for this is to instruct the fan to Right Click on the link (using the HTML Before Inline Link text)
BUT that leads on to….
If I look at the site from a smartphone, clicking on the download link just takes me to a completely blank white screen
There is no ability to right-click (click and hold brings up a share, translate or inspect mini menu – and the last thing I want is people sharing the link as it would bypass the whole point of requesting emails)
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to fix this OR a better way of tackling the process I want to deal with that ensures it is doable from all sorts of devices
