[resolved] Use external file host for downloads (8 posts)

    I will try to keep this as simple and brief as possible.

    I am wanting to change my current site to a wordpress site. I sell digital downloads (photoshop actions, PSD templates, etc) I already have all my files uploaded to yousendit and everything is zipped and really don't want to have to upload all my files/folders again. What I am wondering is if I can use this plugin and still use yousendit. Instead of uploading to wordpress and using that url to direct to download, can I instead have use my yousendit url?

    I hope I am making sense.

    thank you

    Yes you can! All you need to do is paste the external URL into the field in Download Configuration.

    but i have a serious problem.. everything is fine till checkout when we see download link its protected with a key and expires after set number of downloads but when i click and start downloading my IDM windows show's the original direct link to file... SO my file can be downloaded by anyone.. you have to do something abou it..

  5. Is your file hosted externally as well?
