    Download files must be in located in your /uploads/ folder relative to /wp-content/. If you modified the file path with the fds_download_files_directory filter, that also needs to be located relative to /wp-content/

    That’s not the problem. The files are in the uploads folder. The problem is the way the plugin is rewriting the download link.

    So, without any changes to the functions.php file


    [download label="My Link"][/download]

    Is being tranposed into this (and clicking on the link loads the ‘page not found’):

    [audio src="" /]

    Do you see the problem?

    I understand the problem. I’m trying to narrow down what would be causing the upload path to result in a fully-fledged URL. I can’t reproduce this on 3.4.2 or 3.5.

    Some additional questions:

    1. What permalink structure are you using?
    2. Are you on a Windows or Linux server (if Linux, what flavor)?
    3. Do you have a modified uploads path, or is it the default?
    4. Is WP installed in a subdirectory or is /wp-content/ outside the root?


    I am having the same issue. I am testing it locally before I go to Prod. My test environment:

    1) Custom Structure: /%category%/%postname%/
    2) WAMP for local and Apache (not sure on the specific version)
    3) I am using Multisite, but my files are uploaded to “/files/YEAR/MONTH/FILENAME”
    4) Installed in the root
    5) WP 3.5.1
