Easy Digital Downloads Free Link


Replace the add-to-cart button in Easy Digital Downloads with a direct link to the download file when the product is free and has only one file. This only works when the file is an external link to a web-accessible file.

For archive pages on the Shop Front theme, the cart icon is replaced with a download icon and direct download link.

¿Por qué?

Because I wanted to add my free plugins to an Easy Digital Downloads shop, without making it harder to download them from the shop than from WordPress.org plugin pages.

¿Se registran las descargas en Easy Digital Downloads?

No. Downloads are direct from the site hosting the linked file.

¿Puedo cambiar la etiqueta del enlace de descarga?

Yes, see Downloads > Settings > Extensions. There’s also a filter hook, edd_free_link_label, if you want finer control over the link label.

¿Puedo cambiar el HTML del enlace de descarga?

Yes, there are templates. Look in the templates folder of the plugin. There’s also a filter hook, edd_free_link_template, if you want finer control over which template is used.

Other plugin I used stopped working suddenly, I assume it is stopped by EDD because is too old and probably breaks some rules. This plugin, however works very nicely. Great job, webaware!

I have used this plugin for a number of years and find it very useful – it works exactly as advertised. I decided to post a review today because after something went wrong I needed a bit of support and I was so grateful for the service. The developer is patient and helpful. Thanks for the plugin!
