Title: Download link missing
Post by: aayan26 on 20.03.2017 23:09:16
When I upload a document to jdownloads:downloads, it would give me a link that I could provide to a user. For example, it would look like this: http://websitename.com/my-download/send/9-public-user/1450-results-e121512.html. Then the user would be able to copy and paste the link and in 10 seconds the document would download.  This option has disappeared and I do not know how to get it back.

I assume you have created a category called 'downloads' where you create the Downloads and are using a menu item with alias called my-download.

Have you changed jd Config - Frontend tab field "Use files title as download link?" It should be Yes.
Which layout are you using?
Typically the expected format of the link would be something like:

Yes, the frontend tab field "use file title as download link" is checked as yes. But I don't know where to go to see what layout its in or how to even add the layout and see it on the admin side. Even when I try to generate a link for example : http://sitename.com/my-download/send/9-public-user/ then add file name .html it doesn't work.
