Custom link text
« on: 14.02.2019 18:20:12 »
Hello and thank you for your extension.

I'm using the content plugin to download files directly from articles. I'm wondering if it's possible to customize the text of the download link so that it's different from the name of the download. For example I would like to have the link say Download Handout, pointing to a pdf with another name.

Thanks for any help.

Hi
The jD Content plugin presently shows the Title of the Download.  This Title does not need to be the same as the file name in the Download.  So you could rename the Download. 
Might be a bit more flexible if you re-named the Download say 'Display Handout 2019-02-15"  where I have added the date into the title ,or mabe something like "Display Handout - <topic>" where ,topic> is replaced with a suitable text.  This is for when you have multiple handouts.

Thanks for your answer. A bit disappointing. So I guess I can't just insert a click here link but must display the actual download name. Ok, I'll work around that. Perhaps an option to consider in future updates?
Best,
Andre
