    Hi there…

    Thanks for creating this very handy plug-in.

    I am not able to get it to work.
    The direct URL link brings up a 404 page. So that approach doesn’t work.
    Then putting [download-code] into a page results in message saying

    [Download id not defined]

    So that way doesn’t work.
    The last option is to provide a link to a specific file, which I’ve not tested as it’s not they way I want to make use of this plugin.

    Any idea what might be preventing it from working?

    Thanks,

    Jonathan

  • Hi,I have just downloaded this and had the same problems as you.

    I discovered that I had put the code within quotes ( [download-code id=”xxxxx”] ) and once I removed the quotes ( [download-code id=xxxxx] ) I could use the shortcode of a private post and it worked, without the post showing on the website. (set visibility of post to ‘private’ at top right of post screen)

    I still can’t use the direct URL method though.

    I realise this might be too late for Jonathan but it might help someone else 😀

    I hope this works for me. What is strange in my case is when I wanted to just put the generic [download-code] in the first time I tried to use it, the box would appear for people to add their code. Then, and I don’t know if it’s because I added more products or what, all of the sudden I got the

    [Download id not defined] on my pages. That was after I uploaded more content.

    As far as the ID…I don’t know what the ID is supposed to be. There is no “ID” column on the release list page.

    There is a rar scenario that MYSQL settings would not allow for more than a certain amount of download releases. We have tried to fix this with a patch with is not contained in the main release (version 2.1.1). Can you try this and see if it works?

    I still need to know what the “ID” is?? What do I insert for the ID in my download shortcode that I put in my posts or pages?

    ID = go to the list of releases and click ‘EDIT’ for one of them.
    The url should be something like: Yourwordpressblog.com/admin.php?page=dc-manage-releases&release=2&action=edit

    notice the ‘Release=X’. The number where the ‘x’ is, is your release ID.
    maybe this can be added to the table of releases in the next update?
