[resolved] Link to download (4 posts)

    Instead of uploading my publications locally, I would like to refer my webpage visitors to an external page (e.g. the editor/conference group) where they can download the publication. I've tried this, but it does not work. Any solutions? Thanks!

    Can you please explain your entire workflow? I don't quite understand what you're trying to do here ...

    I too am trying the same thing. When I add a URL to another website for the user to be able to download the publication I get a blank white screen.

    Yes, the current version does not allow you to put externally-hosted files in your archive. This is for security purposes since the files are loaded by an external script.

    From the plugin readme:

    OK, will I be able to use remote files in the future?

    Absolutely! A future version will better handle fully-qualified filenames and once again allow for remote URLs.
