    i upgraded the plugin and now they links to my document don't work. I am being http://www.xxxx.org/publication/youth-council-calendar/wppa_download instead of the document link.

    Any ideas why this is happening now?

    Appreciate your help. Great plugin by the way!

    Please provide a link to your site so I can see what is happening, but that link (with the slug of the publication and wppa_download is the correct URL).

    The idea is to mask the actual link to the file so that a future version can enable password-protected downloads. The end user should never see the actual file URL.

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks I understand that and I did read that in your other posts. My website is password protected at the moment as I in the process of building it. I don't want to put the password here if possible, can I email it to you?

    Hi Eric

    I am having the same issue.

    Shortcode on the Sermons page is [wp-publication-archive categories='sermon']

    Clicking on Open or Download gives me a 404. The first link on the page that you see should point to

    Thanks for your help.

    When you upgrade the plugin rather than do a fresh install, its not flushing your permalinks. To do this manually, you need to:

    1. Log in to your site.
    2. Navigate to Setting » Permalinks

    That's it. Just viewing the permalinks page will flush your settings and fix the 404.

    If not, please start a new discussion topic because that means you're facing a different issue. This is the same process we used to resolve the problem above.
