    Hi, what i want to achieve is a page that i can make PDF or even DOC newsletter archive available where i can add a title/date and perhaps some descriptive text.

    I see there are some download managers around if i could upload a pdf then easily add it to a list on page that would be ideal.

    I know i could probably just make a page and use media upload but i would rather have more control over the downloads and besides someone else will be updating the site and it needs to be as simple as possible.

    this seems to provide the answer but if anyone knows of a better way.

    I think I just replied to the other thread where you mentioned this issue, but this is definitely the most straightforward (if manual) method of creating a page of newsletters for download.

    An alternative might be Download Monitor.

    thanks i found something similar that works well here: http://giulio.ganci.eu/category/wordpress/

    im have a couple of issues in the php script though, as you will see there is a widget script in the code, but i want to style the link it produces, im not sure what im looking for in the PHP though, im good with CSS though so want to assign a class.

    [Moderated: Too much code. Please consider placing the code in a text file on your site with a link here -or- use a pastebin service such as http://wordpress.pastebin.ca. Thanks!]
