Forces downloads nicely

Does a great job of forcing downloads of the supported file types.

Very simple and clear plugin, no problems. I liked it!
The only thing - I have to update my permalinks.

Works just like described. Like others, I did have to manually move the force-download.php file, but thats no big deal.

I definitely recommend this plugin :)

simple and it works

perfect solution to force downloads
By , for WP 3.5.1

I also had to manually move the force-download.php which was no big deal. but the plug is is great... and the php code to define a "downloads" class worked like a charm to style my links.


Easy and Clean ...

and well coded, too! By the way... it also works :)

Can I tell you something? Why don't you preserve at least spaces in folder's name and file's name?

you could try to add this line
$content = str_replace ( ' ','%20',$content );

just before this line
$content = esc_url( $content);

I'm sorry for my English :(

Drew has assembled an exceptional plugin. He is an enthusiastic admin, and goes out of his way to make sure code-idiots (like me) are happy and the function is working spot on. Does exactly what it's intended, works every time. 100% recommend.

Easy and works as advertised. I did have to manually move the force-download.php file.
Just a nice simple solution for delivering mp3 files easily.
