[Plugin: WP-Filebase Download Manager] Can you use a shortcode for one single file?

Viewing 6 replies - 1 through 6 (of 6 total)
  • I would also like the ability to use a shortcode to link to specific files in locations other than the post a file is attached to.

    Apparently this already exists, but is un(der)documented.
    The author’s website has some thin documentation that indicates there is a wizard in the Visual editor, but it is incomplete. Therefore I dug into the code and found that one could do:

    [wpfilebase tag=file id=136]

    To provide a link block for file 136. You can also include tpl as an attribute to the shortcode to specify a template other than the default for display.

    Cheers!

    WP-Filebase adds a button to the visual editor, see the screenshot:

    You can create all supported shortcodes with this wizard, including single file tags.

    exactly this button is not working at my blog’s visual editor.
    can someone tell the shortcodes for manual insert?

    if found this working
    [wpfilebase tag=file id=2 tpl=simple]

    but the plugin is not really hiding the URL isn’t it?
    In Firefox i can’t make it hide the download link by any option…

    Correct, the visual editor is broken, and probably should not be the only way to access the feature.

    I’m not sure about hiding it, but I assume restricting access to the download by user level works. It seems to work for the daily file limits at least. Have you tried viewing the post in a second browser without session cookies/a new MultiFox identity profile?

    Update to latest version. Now everythng should work.
