[Resolved] Use external file host for downloads

    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.

    Is your file hosted externally as well?

    When the file was on your host, did the final download URL include “edd/symlink”?
