I asked for some assistance before on a good workflow for allowing our clients to download files from our wordpress site.
- I may need to better re=phrase that Q.
- Create a guest account (subscriber)
- Upload the product (zip) and add it to the gallery. - Make use of the 'Member Only file' tickbox, so that anyone not logged in wont be able to get file. - send an email out to our paying customers with credentials for guest account
That aside, the workflow has been rejected by our marketing team as its not a smooth process for end-users:
- Email has link to login (wp-admin) - After logging in, they get re-directed to the wordpress dashboard. - They then have to navigate to the dl gallery and find the links to the download.
If you try and download the product when your not logged in, it will tell you:
You must be logged in to download this file. ← Back to Dekho Resource Center
Ideally there would be a looping re-direct to let you login and then download zip?
Looking for an answer that gives my users a slick way to download without getting lost along the way and minimising clicks.
