    Hi atthila,

    We are building a feature that allows you to specify multiple download id's in your short-code. We then generate a list of downloads with checkboxes in the form that a user can select from.

    Look for this feature in the next release.

    Development is actually done, but we need to update the documentation. In the middle of a few projects at the moment, but hoping to get this out within a week or so.

    The new version was indeed released. Please feel free to update and let us know how it is working for you.

    I'm not sure why the version number didn't change in the top right of the download area, but the code was committed. We will check on finding a way to change that number from 1.0 to 2.0.

    You can find a description of the changes in the changelog:

    It tells me "Please select at least one of the documents" but it does show nothing. Thank you for support!

    Within the Contact Form 7 form used for multiple download selection, ensure you place the tag "<ebd />" where you want to checkbox list to be generated as shown in screenshot 7.

    Actually I can not handle it. I created a new Contact Form 7 form with the tag "<ebd />", but no mutiple download selection is possible. How could I show the multiple download selection?

    I solved the multiple download by myself. I works!
    [email-download download_id="1,2,3,4,5" contact_form_id="3"]

    Just one more problem:
    if I leave 8.2 mutiple urls blank, I receive all download links correctly.
    If I add my email message:
    -----
    Hello [requesting_name],
    here I send yout he requested links:
    [file_names]
    -----
    The first link is not shown in the email and the tag "">[file_names]"
    is mentioned at the mail.
    Any idea how to solve this?

    Thanks
    Joachim

    Hi joeydrums,

    [file_names] is not a supported placeholder for multiple downloads.

    You will want to use [file_urls] as indicated in the admin panel, which will generate both the names and URLs for the files.

    I hope that helps.

    Great plugin. My one question is it possible to move the check boxes to the left side of the items?

    Hi Ahaanalytics,

    That is not currently possible, but we have added it to our list of enhancements -- shouldn't be very tough to implement.

    Just FYI, you need to put the comment by joeydrums in the Screenshot examples. Its not clear you need to put [email-download download_id="1,2,3,4,5" contact_form_id="3"] for the multiple downloads to work. You screen shots just end at adding the code to the contact form.

    Thanks for the note nyartboy,

    We had the multiple file code outlined in the changelog, but we'll plan to get a screenshot of it out there as well to make it clearer.

    Good plugin - but sadly not very well documented. This could be real winner if you'd just explain things better (and therefore increase user experience). I'm sure the relatively low rating is purely due to lack of support and documentation.

    The ability to style the tick-box list as mentioned before is absolutely essential. Your demo only looks tidy because you are using two identical file titles.

    Also, the "screenshot 7" you keep referring to is not there (anymore). That's confusing.

    Are the checkboxes needed at all in case of multiple files?

    I'm thinking of an implementation in which I have posts for downloads, some of which have one and some of which have multiple downloads. It would be confusing for my users to get a nice inline link in case of one download, but to have to check the checkboxes in case of multiple downloads.

    Hi nadworks and Mark,

    You're right that we hadn't focused much on the multiple files feature or promoted how useful it really is. Thanks for the input and we'll look at making some improvements to those features and adding some more info in the documentation.

    We do try our best to provide free support and enhance the plugin in our spare time and appreciate everyone's patience. Also, if you have any specific wording, screenshots, etc. to contribute, feel free as it will help us enhance the plugin for the community.

    Hi Mark,

    It seems the screenshots aren't displaying on the WordPress plugins repository. Please see the following thread to gain access to the screenshot:

    Hi there, thanks for the update. I have seen the screenshots and got it working this way. Here are two specific suggestions that I hope are not too difficult for you to implement:

    1. Make the multiple downloads scenario work just like the single download -- i.e. multiple inline links without the need to check boxes. This would be more helpful I think for many use cases.

    2. Support the Download Monitor (DM) custom formats for the inline links. This should be possible to do if you can pass the DM shortcodes, which are well designed. Essentially Email before download would act as a wrapper around Download Monitor, asking for an email before the download but otherwise using all relevant DM settings, including (custom) formats.

    (Well, at least the first should not be too difficult...)
