Download Manager Package Settings

  • Link Label:
    Download button label/text. If you keep it empty the default label/text will be `Download`.
  • Stock Limit:
    The total download limit of your package. This option controls how many times the package can be downloaded. After provided number of downloads, no one will be able to download. You can change this value any times if you want. Set 0 or leave this field blank if you don't want to put a limit.
  • Download Limit:
    User specific download limit, ie. if you set 10 as Download limit, a user/visitor will be able to down this for 10 times. Use a numeric value here and if you do not want to set download limit set 0 otherwise leave this field blank.
  • Download Count:
    This field stores the total number of downloads of a package. This value will be updated every time a user downloads the package. You can set 0 here to reset your download count. If you want to set an initial download value of your package or reset download count you can use this field, otherwise, leave this field blank.
  • Allow Access:
    Here you can control access to the download. You may select different user roles. Only the users from selected roles can download the package. Select `All Visitors` if you want to allow everyone to download the package regardless of their role/privileges. If you want to make a package login protected or members only, select all user roles here except "All Visitors" ( see video ).Additionally allowed/selected roles from associated categories will be merged with package access. For example "Category A" and "Category B" selected for "Package P" from "Categories" meta box, "Subscribers" has access to "Category A", "Editors" has access to "Category B", "Authors" is selected for "Allow Access" field in "Package P".
    Now, Effective Access to "Package P" = Selected roles in "Allow Access" field + All selected roles for "Category A" +  All selected roles for "Category B" = Subscribers, Authors, Editors
  • Select Members:
    You can apply user/member specific access using this option, but you will need Advanced Access Control Add-on for this
