Easiest way to provide a download area within a RW project


(Olaf Gerbig) #1

I am looking for a fairly easy way to have a download page within my project allowing to download .pdf’s and other formats.

I’d highly any help, as I am quite new to RW a detailed explanation would be best.

Many thanks in advance

Olaf

RapidWeaver comes with a standard downloads plugin page.

Files can be added that generate a link for people to click to download. Some files however may open in browser depending on individual systems.

Realistically there are several ways to do this. One easy way is to zip whatever file/folder you want a person to download. All zipped files will be auto-downloaded. Upload to your server area. Then in RW create a link (several ways to do this) to the zipped file and you have auto-downloads set up.

You can use a standard downloads page, but you can just as easily do this in the friendly confine of Stacks with text or HTML or Markdown stacks.
