WPDM – File Cart

File Cart

WPDM – File Cart Add-on will help your site users to select random files from different packages and download the selected files as a custom package.  This will work with the WordPress Download Manager Pro only. You need to Enable Single File Download and use the file_list tag in your page template for button to appear. Note that, File Cart will not work for locked/private packages. And if you want to keep file cart outside of dashboard, on a publicly accessible page, use short-code [wpdm_file_cart]

    What is the shortcode for the ‘Add to Cart’ button???

    • Shaon

      Please enable individual file download and keep [file_list] tag in your page template. No other separate short-code/tag is needed there.

      • Pombad

        “Now other separate”…? “No other separate”? No other separate what? 🙁 I tried adding [file_list] to both my link/page template. It didn’t help. It just added the file list in each case *laughs*.

        Does this addon require the latest version of the plugin to be installed? (4.5.3) I’m currently on (4.5.0).

    Is it possible to have the + or Add to Cart button aapear when I’m using the [wpdm-all-packages] shortcode on a regular WP page? My client wants the sortable/searchebale files list.

    [wpdm-all-packages jstable="1"]


  • Rick Yager

    Will this plugin’s functionality integrate with the email sharing in the File Hosting and Sharing Plugin? I need the ability to have people add downloads to their cart and then email them to a third party.

  • John Buhman

    Is there a possibility to add the [file_list] to a custom Page template? I’d like to be able to add an entire package to the file cart.

    • John Buhman

      I found the solution that I was looking for but now I have another question that I hope will be answered soon.

      Currently I have my page list the items they can add to the cart, is there a way to have the cart auto load the selected items instead of requiring a refresh for the items to show up in the cart? Possibly through AJAX

      • Shahriar

        User have to go to the file cart page to download the product, so page reload happening anyway.

        If user opens cart page and then adds more file, those files are also added to package , even he does not refresh the page before download.

        However, showing added files in second case would be a nice feature, so noted for implementation.

  • mmccumber

    What exactly do you mean by “File Cart will not work for locked/private packages.” Are you referring to locked files or files posted to a members only area (using BuddyPress)?

    • Shahriar

      You can lock downloads using one of WPDM’s lock options ( EMail,Password, Social etc ). Here locked packages term are refereed to those packages that used one of WPDM lock.

  • tudor

    Will this work with the Form Lock add-on. I mean will the users be able to select the files they want within the form that needs to be validated before the custom download starts? Thanks

  • domain admin

    I’m using a link template with the checkboxes for each item to ‘add to cart’ – how on earth do I output/display the ‘download all’ button that downloads all of the items checked/selected?


    • Shaon

      You can access to cart page in 2 ways,
      #1, you can use short-code [wpdm_file_cart] , if you want to keep that page public
      #2, otherwise, logged in users can access to that page from User Dashboard >> File Cart

      • domain admin

        Thanks for the prompt reply, that works great.

        I’ve added the shortcode underneath the items on the same page. Is there an option to auto-show the cart once a user has added something to it? At present I need to fully reload the page to view the cart and it’s contents.

        Many thanks

  • domain admin

    In the file cart instead of [SUNSET.JPG] etc I want to show the title set for that download, e.g.


    Is this variable available to output in the cart? If so what is it called?

    many thanks!

    • domain admin

      Sorry I’ve fixed this now, what I want to extract is the text added for the download in the rich text editor under the title…

  • Sebastian Sztyber

    Hi! How can I remove the fixed sidebar button from file cart in a page? (the one that drives the user to the file cart page at the top right corner of the page?)

  • Jason Wang


    How can I turn off the button of “email this cart” ??

    • Daniel Klotz

      so this request was initially from 2019 and now 2022 still no option to disable floating bar?
      I would like to see the possibility to enable this floating bar only for logged in users (maybe even select user roles for which it should be enabled).
      We don’t make use of a user dashboard page so the floating bar would be an good option if those conditions would be met.

  • DanWPdownload

    Is it possible to make the File Cart A Widget? So that it can be added to the header to show the count of files instead of the floating “cart” on the side?

  • Andreas Luthe

    is it possible to place the File Cart button with the file counter on the right side of the page in the menu?
