[Plugin: WP Download Codes] Download link shows up, but wont open anything but the current page/path (3 posts)

    Hi, 1st this is an awesome plugin, I have it working but not the way it should, and my download link is exposed.

    Basically the link shows up after the code is entered, but when you click on the link it only takes the browser to the page it is on (like a refresh using both IE and Firefox). The path is the same as what the page is on when you hover the mouse over the link as well. So I disabled all other plugins, and that didnt help. I also checked the settings in the template file, and only noticed the blank http: reference. I put my url for the zip file as a temp solution, but this exposes the link. Also doing it this way won't let me have multiple releases either as they all will be forced to the link I put in the template file.

    Do you have any suggestions why the link just opens the same page up? I know the link should be blank, but how can I make the path go to the zip file location instead of whatever the page is on?

    Thanks so much, and really even if this doesnt get working it still will help me out because it is really cool.

    It seems like the plugin only works in POSTS, not PAGES. I experienced the same error.

    When adding the shortcode to a post, all work fine, you can click on the link and it starts to download.

    Does anyone have an idea on how to fix it?

    I've traced this original issue to Firefox only. The download link works great in all other browsers but Firefox. Anyone got any ideas what could be the issue in firefox?
