Download from files

This plugin is used to insert downloadable documents into content using shortcode. It is a very simple plugin and perhaps it is this simplicity that can make up for it.

You need to upload the documents to be downloaded to the server’s file system – for which the plugin also offers a tool, but even via FTP – then the folders here or a file can be selected for download. You can specify whether the subfolders of the selected folder and the files in it are displayed on the page, either globally or individually.

Main functions:

  • Order
    You can also set the order of folders and files.
  • Titles
    The plugin supports naming documents (via descript.ion file) and displays the names.
  • Properties
    Display the type and size of the document (Not displayed by default, but you can also display the date and time of the document with a custom template.)
  • Extensions support
    You can specify globally and occasionally which document formats can appear on the page.
  • Hide direct link
    Hide the link to the document from the user in a switchable way. (Of course, don’t think of some big encryption here!)
  • Support custom template
    The default look is intentionally not overestimated. Instead, the plugin supports you to define your own display for the theme you are using.
  • Maintenance free
    You don’t have to log in to the WordPress admin interface either. You upload the doc to the appropriate folder on ftp, and the user can download it from there.
