Phoca Download Content Button

Post by premiermc » 18 Apr 2020, 22:13

Hi, I am using the Phoca download component which is great so thank you. I have installed the Download Content Button which navigates fine when trying to put a link into the content part of a virtuemart product. It does not create a button and just puts code which does not work and even if I insert it in the code view it still does not work it just looks like this:
To Download the Brochure {phocadownload view=file|id=12|target=b}

Hi Benno, thanks for the reply.

I had already installed the plugin and it is enabled but that is the result afterwards.

Hi,
sorry, Christine has just made me aware that you are using the plugins in Virtuemart.
I have installed the Download Content Button which navigates fine when trying to put a link into the content part of a virtuemart product.
I had skipped that. Content plugins are made for articles written with com_content. Therefore, this will probably not work in a Virtuemart product. Since I do not use Vituemart, I cannot test it either. :(

Kind regards,
Benno

Is there a way to find the direct link to the document that is to be downloaded? When I copy link address and set that as the link it just gives me a 404 error.

Hi, it depends on where the file is stored. If on your server - it will be just in phocadownload folder in root of your Joomla! or if it is link to external server?
