After updating to the new generation of this plugin, I noticed that I am now getting server errors (error 500) for many of my downloads.
I am using a "a href" tag with the download/###### link directly on an image instead of a shortcode.
On the site, a non-logged in user sees a note that they can't download it. It appears that this is showing up as a server error for google's bot.
1) Is there a way to prevent this error while still linking to an image?
2) Will this affect SERP for my page/site? There are several errors related to this.
