Open the post or page you want to add a download button to, paste the shortcode example below

[quick_download_button title="Download" url="http://yoursite/wp-content/upload/fileto_download.pdf"]

The url value needs to be replaced with your media link URL. To change the title, enter a different text in the title value. The default value is Download.

More Shortcode Usage

** Open link in a new window **

To open the download link in a new window (tab), set attribute ‘open_new_window” to true. To open link in the same window set the attribute to ‘false’ See example below:

[quick_download_button title="Download" open_new_window="true" url_external=""]

** Set the button background color (color_bg=”#ffc107″), set waiting timer (wait=15) and waiting message (msg=”Please wait 15 seconds”) **

[quick_download_button  title="Download" color_bg="#ffc107" open_new_window="true" wait=15 msg="Please wait 15 seconds" url_external=""]

** Link to external URL **

To use external url, add url_external attribute

[quick_download_button title="Download" url_external=""]

** Auto calculates file size. **

To let the plugin generate file size, make sure the file URL link is in the WordPress upload directory when using with shortcode e.g wp-content/upload and change filesize value to 1 like below

[quick_download_button file_size="1" title="Download" url="http://yoursite/wp-content/upload/fileto_download.pdf"]

** Add file size manually **

The plugin can calculate the file size for you by entering 1 in the filesize value. You don’t have to enter it manually but in case, enter the file size value in the filesize attribute like below.

[quick_download_button file_size="14.5MB" title="Download" url="http://yoursite/wp-content/upload/fileto_download.pdf"]

** Hide icon for file extension **
To hide icon image for the file extension, set the extension value to 0. Note, this will also hide file extension text.

[quick_download_button  title="Download" filesize="1" extension="0" url="http://yoursite/wp-content/upload/fileto_download.pdf"]

** Show icon image and file extension text **

To show both file extension icon and text, set extension value to 1 and extension_text to 1

[quick_download_button  title="Download" filesize="1" extension="1" extension_text="1"  url="http://yoursite/wp-content/upload/fileto_download.pdf"]
