Support » Plugin: Lana Downloads Manager » Shortcode for categories

  • Resolved idmesspass


    I need something simple that will not slow my website and I am testing your plugin.
    I want to migrate from WPDM that has take a strange turn.

    My question is how I can list all the downloads from a category?

    I am trying with [lana_download id=”category-descriptor”] and [lana_download id=”category-ID”] but it seems that it doesn’t work.

    I have many files under dynamic categories, and to put for each file code in page is excluded.

    Thank you 🙂

    The plugin does not include category listings because it is too complicated (can be grid list, simple list, what to display, how to display).

    I have an addon plugin that has content category list widgets for lana downloads manager. This can be used for most page builders (e.g. Elementor).

    I will send you the addon plugin if you want to try it, just write an email to

    Thank you for taking time to answer my question.
    Thing is that I am trying to find something out of the box and exclud workarounds.
    But for my next project I will definetly try to test the addon.

    Good work!

    Yeah, I think there are a couple of Custom Post Type and Custom Taxonomy listing plugins, I just don’t know how much you can change the look and add meta tags.

    Note that for Lana Download, the download URL is not the default permalink, but a meta that works with a function:

    $download_url = lana_downloads_manager_get_download_url( $post_id );

    If you have any questions or need help, feel free to contact me.
